This is intended to be a general overview of the very important or big features/improvements we are working on, or planning. For a list of smaller features see fun tasks for newcomers.

What keeps us busy in general?

  • Fixing bugs. Improving reliability and ease of use is never “done”. We have tons of work. Help is very welcome!
  • Improving GStreamer. This benefits not only Pitivi, but other multimedia applications as well.
  • Working on features. With you!

High-level roadmap

We'll invest in stability and cool features.

Major features

Besides the items below we care about, see also the list of GSoC project ideas.

Motion ramping, time stretching

We're working on adding support for simple speed changing.

Once this is done, we'll stretch the time so we finish faster the speed ramping.

Cut and export a video without re-encoding it

See issue 2475.

Effects UI

Some effects like alphaspot and color corrector already have a custom UI. The overall experience can be smoother.

Still to do:

Hardware-accelerated decoding and encoding

Since GStreamer 1.2, the basic infrastructure allowing us to cleanly take advantage of the video decoding capabilities of modern graphic cards is there. We need to ensure that our planned usecases are properly supported with the most common graphic drivers (through VA-API) and to make the integration work in Pitivi.
