Custom Controls in Footage

Posted on

I've been working on app called Footage with my good friend Drew Wilson (we made Roon together). Footage is a video editor app he's been working on for awhile. Drew hired me to make the effects system and to come up with a way for some designer friends to make effects.

We decided to make another Mac app called Footage Composer. It's been a lot of fun and there are definitely some big challenges with this project. Mac development is hard.

I asked Drew if I could show off some of the stuff I've been working on and he was all for it.


Here's a demo of the curves control:

This is probably the most complicated thing I've worked on in a super long time. I'm really proud of it.


Another really fun control was the gradient control. Here's a quick demo:

That color picker library is BFColorPickerPopover. There's still a few things to polish up with it, but overall I'm really happy with it!

Thanks for watching! Let me know what you think on Twitter.
