Develop video editing feature
I posted the message below on https://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=3287208&forum_id=447910
"I'd like to develop a new feature, if I can:
adding screen annotation after recording.
One could modify the player or develop a standalone program like the swf producer.
I think the second option is my better choice because the source does not compile under vs2008.
In a week I should start reading and analysing the code, I will try to reuse as much as possible.
The new editor program should play and stop the video, as the current player already does (I think I should just copy this).
Then one could create the annotation (using the cam studio main, nothing to do, maybe...) and put it on the video window
And the new editor program should overlap the original video with the annotation (I have to figure out how), then save.
My objective is not loosing the quality of the original video, but only overwriting the image where the annotation is placed...
I've not yet started, it is just an idea...
Please note: I'm not sure whether there is information loss in the codec from the screen capture's data to the avi.
If this is the case, the player and editing feature should be incorporated in the camstudio and not in a separated program because you should be able to play and edit before saving to file. So, if encoding the video and decoding it again is not like zipping and unzipping, a brand new version of camstudio may be needed...
... that is a bit more effort :-)
