Description Jean-François Fortin Tam 2012-03-29 03:44:05 UTC
Pitivi GES is unable to load the following from an existing .xptv file created by pitivi 0.15:
- multimedia settings: resolution, framerate, etc.
- project metadata: title, author, date, etc.

It looks like it's not just a question of handling that in the pitivi code, ges-pitivi-formatter.c does not seem to take those into account.

I may have an opportunity to look at this. Can you outline the solution you think is most appropriate?

For example, I can imagine one possible solution would be:

 Make the latest Master read and write .xptv in the format defined in 0.15.
Comment 2 Mathieu Duponchelle 2012-09-19 17:54:17 UTC
This is already the case actually. multimedia settings and metadata are not implemented in the GESPitiviFormatter though, so that will need to be done to get full back-compatibility.

Comment 4 Jean-François Fortin Tam 2013-11-23 15:40:33 UTC
Nope, still not seeing this working. Take a xptv created by 0.15 for example, you may have the following settings near the top of the file so that the resolution is 1280x720:

  <export-settings aencoder="vorbisenc" audiochannels="2" audiodepth="16" audiorate="44100" muxer="oggmux" vencoder="theoraenc" videoheight="720" videopar-denom="1" videopar-num="1" videorate-denom="1001" videorate-num="24000" videowidth="1280" />

But loading that project loads it as 720x576. Haven't seen anything change on that front.
Comment 5 Thibault Saunier 2015-09-23 17:07:31 UTC
Pitivi formatter is not supported, really sorry about that.
