Ability to export a project and associated media files as a tarball
Submitted by Jeff F.T.
Assigned to Paul Lange
I want a "Project > Export as archive" menu item that does the following:
- check for available hard drive space
- show a filechooser dialog requesting where to save the tarball
- create a .tar archive
- for each source in the media library: add it to the tarball (try preserving paths/preventing filename collisions?). During this process, show a progressbar.
- add the xptv to the tarball
Not only is this useful for backups or for sharing projects with collaborators, but this is really needed for testing/debugging.
Bonus points if your implementation offers (optionally) to use clip proxies (see bug T2455) to make the file size smaller (for easier upload).
