Summer Of Code slideshow project
Your summer of code project looks interesting... I wonder if wiki article -> SMIL might be considered....
We could add in "click" to advance to next "clip" functionality or a "slide show" flag that adds on some extra controls. We are working on exporting things to video files but if more of a presentation you could add something like export to .odp xml (open office presentation format) (that could then be "translated" to ppt via a converter ... Perhaps its too complex for what your looking for.. but I do see advantages in unifying efforts for "presentations" and "video sequences" since they are very close in functionality.
Plus you could leverage all our efforts in this area for making things GUI based (rather than wikitext based) and your efforts could potentially better tie into the core libraries that will be used in lots of other components ... see Media_Projects_Overview
also I would be down to mentor you ;) -- Mdale 17:49, 14 March 2009 (UTC)
