Recently I've realized that there are a number of things about PiTiVi that were and still are not clear in my mind. So, I've been working on improving the PiTiVi UI design document, particularly with mock-ups -- these are still images or sequences of still images which show how the program is supposed to behave. I've been working for quite a while, but the longer I work, the more unfinished things I seem to notice. On the other hand, it's a pretty amazing experience to watch previously vague ideas start to "gell" into something coherent. I actually have a much better idea how pitivi's features fit together, and where I still need to put more thought into the design.
You can see some of the work i've uploaded here: http://pitivi.org/wiki/UI_Design. At first it was slow-going. It had been several versions since I'd used GIMP. Also, it was a bit tedious to build up components like long strips of 50-pixel high thumbnails. Now that I have a library of bits and pieces, it's a little easier to build the scenarios I dream up. Anyways, I think I've identified most of the areas that I need to develop image sequences for.
As always, I welcome your feedback. Also, if anyone wants to help with this, talk to me.
