Important Missing FeaturesVivia is a young project and is still missing some important features that will probably limit its usefulness to you at this time. These deficiencies will be addressed in future software releases:
The following is a rough outline of the features planned for future releases:
0.1.2: Basic improvements to resource management
0.2: Support all video formats for input and output (in particular NTSC)
0.2.1: Code quality improvement
0.2.2: Improve transition support
0.2.3: Port improvements to multicam mode
0.3: Support extra sound tracks
0.3.1: Translation support, dynamic help, and program manual
0.4: Titler, optimize transitions using OpenGL
0.5: DV video capture
0.6: Cleanup, refactoring (BETA)
0.7: Embeddable scenes, subtitles, chapter markers
0.9: Unit tests
1.0: UI enhancements, add some video and audio effects
2.0: Add storyboard mode, picture-in-picture
3.0: DVD authoring
Highest priority is given to the features necessary to make Vivia a complete solution for easy movie creation. This will include everything from importing video to creating DVDs. It is targeted at desktop users rather than video professionals, but two advanced features that are planned are transcribing tools and motion capture.
