By March 24, 2020August 27th, 2020No Comments


The beta 12 release of OpenTimelineIO, an interchange format and API for editorial cut information, is now available. This is the first release with a C++ core. The adapters remain in python, but the core library and algorithms are implemented in C++. 

Big Changes:

  • C++ Core: the core of opentimelineio is now pybind11-wrapped C++. (see above)
  • otiopluginfo command was added for printing information about plugins visible to otio
  • Kdenlive adapter included in contrib 
  • Also includes preliminary swift bindings

Small Changes:

  • Tweaks to the repo in anticipation of the move to being hosted by the Academy Software Foundation
  • hook function arguments are passable to all commandline scripts
  • Documentation for the C++ core, debugging and building
  • local manifests are loaded so that they override the internal manifests for plugins 
  • Lots of upgrades for the AAF adapter 
  • SchemaDefs now have a repr method 
  • CMX EDL Adapter supports multiple locators per clip now
