UI Design Proposal: Automations


I just mad a quick Mockup on Gimp, that shows a possible User Interface for implementing Keyframes, or Automations into the Open Movie Editor.

Have fun,

    Hi! maybe could be better put all curves together, it is easier to program (I think) and is similar to other programs, making it more intuitive.

    Each slider could have a checkbox to make visible (or invisible) its curve.

    Just an overall remark. If it’s possible, I think you should try to loose the 3D look on buttons etc. because it makes OME look like it’s very old.

    I don’t know what you’re coding in, but for my DVD slideshow GUI(coded in wxBasic(a wxWidgets bind on windows), I could include a .manifest file which will allow the program to use the user’s desktop style for all buttons. For me that was a simple way to give the overall app a refreshing new feel.

    Best regards,

    Hi tin2tin,

    I’m trying to somehow reflect the current development status in the gui.

    This means, that as long as I am not finished with the internal core, such that it is all stable and reliable, I will not polish the GUI style.

    I think it would give users the wrong impressions of everything is shiny and polished in OME, and then it crashes or something does not work as expected.

    Therefore I am quite fine with the current look, but indeed I agree that one day this needs a makeover. ;-)
