With the module foleys_video_engine we offer a simple way to implement reading, writing, displaying and editing of videos using the audio framework JUCE (https://juce.com)
- Reading of video files, video and audio synchronous
- Normalise different sample rates and frame rates
- Compositing of multiple videos or still images in layers (paint on top)
- Writing of video clips
- Audio plugins for clips
- Automatable parameters for video composition
- Video plugins for image processing / colour adjustments etc.
- Multiple audio stems per ComposedClip (avadilable soon)
- Video generator plugins for titles, backgrounds etc. (coming later)
- Alternative video file backend (coming much later)
- Hardware rendering backend (coming even later)
To read and write video files it uses FFmpeg (https://ffmpeg.org). Alternative backends like AVFoundation (OSX) or DirectShow (Windows) might follow in the future, but no promises.
This module is offered under a dual license: GPL and a paid license. For details please refer to the included document LICENSE.md
The paid licenses are currently developed and will be announced soon. You are welcome to get in touch to register your interest and tell us about your use case.
Please find the API documentation (doxygen) here: https://foleysfinest.com/foleys_video_engine/
On https://github.com/ffAudio/VideoExamples we have a simple video player using this engine, as well as a Video Editor (NLE) to test the functionality and to give an idea about it's intended use.
To use the engine, just start the Projucer and add foleys_video_engine to your project.
We hope this is useful and are looking forward to your feedback:
