Video Editing Software beta

Postby zeblian » Tue Mar 13, 2012 5:42 pm

I am currently working on video editing software. Would I be able to find people on this forum to test it?

@TEKnician Both. It is a web based editor with a Java based rendering server. I am currently in the alpha stage and looking for interest from video editing communities to help test.

This just sounds… terrible? I'm sure you've put a lot of effort and time into it but the entire idea is flawed from the concept...

Agreed, but will still take a look. :book:

It might sound terrible, but if you think about it this idea has some serious potential for newbie amv makers who dont have a computer capable of editing video.

I for one would love to help out with the beta testing

This is where I point out that people who don't have a computer capable of editing video also don't have a computer capable of running a web-based editor, in case you didn't figure that out yourself.

:up: :| that pretty much sums it up.

I've been confused for too long...can we get a basic concept at least? Like HOW IN THE F*** ARE WE GONNA GET OUR FOOTAGE INTO THAT EDITOR? Surely you don't expect us to load gigabytes of raws to some random site that can easily share it to other sites. Still no word form original threader since March. Just letting you know now, I'm not going to avidly use it, but ill be more than happy to test it.

You would normally be right if it is just a web based editor, it could also be made into a cloud based video editor in which case the computers that does the heavy lifting is maintained elsewhere so that the user just needs an internet connection capable of running say onlive, or Netflix

Wait...what?! :x You want MULTIPLE people to wirelessly access the SAME computer and run DIFFERENT PROJECTS and expect great results?

Not only is that something i highly doubt ANYONE WOULD DO (let alone for FREE for people doing some hobbyist stuff), that would cost one person way too much money. HE MIGHT AS WELL BUY THE USERS THEIR OWN EDITING RIG.


Ah forget it... :?

No not on the same computer, but the guy said he is working on a SERVER based rendering program. Which means that they have a server, or a really, really big computer that no single person could reasonably build, or maintain, so that users can use it. It probably wont be free, but if you think about it the hobbyist might be willing to pay a few bucks a month instead of having to pay a few grand to buy a computer capable of doing the same thing. Also how many people would pay a monthly charge so that when they finish with an amv could click render, turn on cod, or old republic, or wow, or the like and let a different much more powerful computer do the work to render your amv?

On a side note Onlive has a similar thing, for FREE they will let you access windows 7 on the cloud so y cant we have cloud based video editing and rendering?

This has to be one of the most moronic ideas I've ever heard. The mere premise of anyone actually needing something like this shows either a complete lack of hardware/software knowledge or a concentrated effort to scam people. The type of low-latency, high-bandwidth internet connection you'd need to make even the most basic of videos better than you could on a $200 low-end computer from Walmart only exists in a handful of hyper-connected cities. That sort of internet connection also costs enough that anyone using it surely has the funds to buy their own more capable editing system themselves.

I kinda agree with Bashar, the idea is really dumb. That said sandboxed cloud-based encoding isn't exactly unheard of but due to high-IO performance is rather shit. The easiest way to make that work is on bare metal servers constantly processing and separated by kernel cgroups.

That said Netflix is working on a port of avisynth to run on linux to much hilarity, although they're trying very hard to not get their name linked to the project. Not sure how they expect it to perform but I figure similar issues will become apparent, not least the joy of porting intrinsic MASM to NASM.

I'm enjoying some of the banter here.

The concept here is that you go to a website, which is the central point in this application. Once you sign in you have access to your personal server, which has all of your files. Now this server is just a java program that can be run on any machine, including the local machine. The server handles sending the videos to the web interface in a format that your browser accepts and then receiving rendering scripts, which it then uses xuggler to compile into the video you want.

One of the things I noticed, was a comment about bandwidth, this only takes bandwidth if the server is not on your machine and not on your internal network.

When I've done some testing, I've been able to get the web interface of the video editor to run fine on something as cheap as a net-book.

My progress on this is slow since this is just a fun project for me and I've been putting a lot of research into getting my idea to work, such as using web sockets, and working with the issues the xuggler library has.
