Update: It’s released now. Check the updated www.diva-project.org .
I'm glad to announce that Diva 0.0.1 will be released shortly. Here is a small preview with some hands-on demo movies:
Demo 2 XviD / Mpeg4 — Basic playback capabilities. Putting media on the timeline, adjusting in/out points, using multi-track multi-layer editing, adding music, navigating the timeline, saving the project, fullscreen playback.
Demo 3 XviD / Mpeg4 — Advanced editing capabilities — cutting clips using the clip cutter, using the chain-edit twin view to adjust in/out points, adjusting track opacity, animated filter parameters demo, taking advantage of the background ahead-processing.
Demo 4 XviD / Mpeg4 — Undo/redo functionality with a history of all the operations. In Diva you can always go back in the past (the undo/redo/history is saved with the project). I'm demoing that functionality later in the video by:
- Building a project
- Undoing everything and saving the project
- Closing the application
- Reloading the application and reloading the project
- Redoing everything step by step
Files are rather large (30 – 70MB) but there is pretty much to watch there. In the meantime you might want to check the screenshots.
Official tarballs, build instructions and all the information you might want to get it working right will be made public very soon now.
