Hi all,

Just in time for the LAC here's a pre-release of a video track for

  - edit ardour.menus (or ardour.menus.in when compiling ardour)
    and add [1]

 <menuitem action='aniConnect'/>

    below the "AddTrackBus" entry
  - make a dummy executable AniComp in PATH eg.
    sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/AniComp /bin/true
  - start ardour2

download and unzip:

  ./aics /some/video/file.avi

Select "Connect" from ardour's Session menu.

voila. You have a video-timeline displaying the given file. For a
screenshot and more info see http://rg42.org/oss/sodankyla/aics


The sources of aics (ardour image compositor socket) are available from
git://rg42.org/sodankyla  It's a bit tricky to compile hence the
statically linked binary.

If you compile ardour from source, patch it [2] to disable editing of
the timeline. While session management and editing is planned is it not
yet available!

more later,
