Question/suggestion: Video processing and plugins
Created by: aledomu
I have been paying attention to this project since it was first talked about. I see that there are many concerns about the audio tasks, but I also look in ways of "translating" what's done there to the video camp. My question is simple: you seem to aim to support loading DAW plugins right from here, the multimedia system manager. What about video plugins/node-processing (which to me seems similar conceptually to what you do)? I think it could be a good idea to support OpenFX and Frei0r formats. Maybe as completely separate code paths or with any native format as a middleman.
Also when doing the stuff about video, keep in mind what people say about kdenlive and Cinelerra render quality (the last one is better), so please make the internal functionality in such a way that we don't have to say that.
I'd like to know what you think. I'll probably open another issue regarding SPA and the NON-Daw developer, which I think could be very informative for creating a simple alternative plugin format.
