Description Mathieu Duponchelle 2011-03-31 01:09:43 UTC
Created attachment 184752 [details]
80 lines example for GESTimelineLayer.

The simple example file attached should display nothing for ~ 5 seconds, then a red screen with a 880 hz beep, then stop, but the gap at the beginning does not exist.

    ges: Add a gnl background object  to tracks
    This is in order to support gaps in the timeline.
    This is not the proper solution, we should make sure to fill gaps properly,
    but for the time being, it makes the trick

We should detect the gaps properly and then add GES*TestSource at the exact time of them instead of using a background. This, in order to have better performances.
