Late report. But I did get quite a bit done!

Last week…

  1. Video Effects file format reader
  2. Live Preview of Effects! (YAY!)
  3. Effect files added

Live Preview took most of my time. We bought down CPU usage from ~90% to a more manageable ~50%. Cleaned up code a bit (still needs more cleanup). It is rather very ‘demoable’, provided you gloss over the slowdowns.

Coming up next week would be…

  1. Even less CPU Usage! We’re now even with current Cheese (which does not give you live previews). I want to bring this down even more.
  2. Reduced latency for switching operations. Moving between effects/screens now has more than a second of latency. I should reduce this to much lesser than a second.
  3. Code cleanup. Some of the C code is a mess – needs to be cleaned up much.
  4. Error fixing. You can now crash it by looking at it at a 58 degree angle, during new moon days. Bugs like these will be fixed.

Cya in a week, with a very-usable Cheese! I’ll post a screencast as soon as I’ve made Cheese a bit more sexy :)
