Editing Tools
  • Benefits: More interactive tools that fits tool system make it easy to discover functionality
  • Description: Currently editing tools are designed to be fast, but if you are not familiar with what they do, it is hard to memorize them. functionality can be improved with drawing gizmos on top of strips that are edited, drawing previews of frames when these are useful for operation. Some editing tools use playhead as editing cursor, which sometimes is useful but it can be counter productive and more interactive approach can be used.
  • Requirements: Proficient in C
