This is DRAFT
This page is an early DRAFT and is subject to change. Please don't rely on it.

With the further development of Design Suite there arises a need for clear Long Term Goals and this page currently serves as a page holder for these.

Contents

Goals

  • Define a concrete set of tasks one would want to do using Design Suite.
  • For each task propose at least one example workflow of how to achieve it.
  • For each task/workflow find and include a set of needed applications.
  • For each workflow prepare a tutorial and put it on the spin.
  • Prepare some templates that might be useful for the defined tasks

Tasks

Joe has been on a holidays trip with family and recorded a lot of content with his DV video camera. He wants to import the shots into the computer, do some cutting, add background music, … and make a video he can show his friends.

Minori was on a school trip to Kyōto and shot a lot of photos with her camera. She wants to edit them a little (fix perspective, red eyes, colours, …), organize and archive them, and publish some of them on web in a blog post (and/or face book?).

Marketing

Once the next version is underway in terms of image production, I'd love to see this be distributed at design events to introduce designers to FOSS... what's the plan for getting it in the hands of users? Please hit me or anyone else on the Marketing team up if you'd like to take this to an event, and we'd love to help you with a marketing strategy for this. Mel Chua 08:01, 13 July 2010 (UTC)
