GSoC project: Video Output Tool
I am another student selected for working on Hedgewars as part of the Google Summer of Code. My name is Stepan and I am known as Stepan777 at IRC. If you look at the map of Russia you can find city called Bryansk located somewhere near to Ukraine and Belarus, this is where I am from.
I will be working on the project called Video Output Tool and, as you may already know, I will be mentored by Hedgewars author unc0rr. Currently, if you want to record video from Hedgewars you have to use some screen grabbing application. This is not very convenient. For this reason I will implement an easy way to convert game demo (or even save) to video file which then can be easily shared with anyone.
Another planned feature is YouTube uploader which will allow you to upload recorded videos to YouTube directly from game in just several clicks.
Thanks to Hedgewars developers for choosing me. I had a chance to work for another organization during GSoC but I also choose Hedgewars :).
Enjoy Hedgewars and good luck to all other students with their projects!
