So it is time to announce that Alessandro Decina has joined our video editing team here at Collabora Multimedia. He will be working with Edward Hervey and Brandon Lewis on moving Pitivi and its related technologies quickly forward. Alessandro has been contributing to GStreamer for quite some time and will be joining Edward and Wim working out of our Barcelona office. Welcome to the team Alessandro!
On the topic of Pitivi related news, Sebastian Dröge has commited his MXF demuxer to gst-plugins-bad. It is still at an early stage with a lot of files still not working, but some of the simpler MXF files out there already works. Sebastian will continue working on improving the demuxer to support all the files in our now extensive collection of MXF test files (we still need Final Cut Pro generated files if anyone got some). Once the demuxer works reliable and with the features we want the next step is a MXF muxer.
Thanks for bringing more developers to Pitivi. I see good things in its future :-)
Go, Alessandro, go!
Final Cut does not not have MXF export itself. one has to use MXF4QT Export.
they have samples on that page that might be helpful for your collection
