hi Mathieu,

clips can be loaded and represented as a coloured bar
onscreen (maybe a different colour for each clip, or
the filename of the clip written on the bar) 

the position of the clip on another box (like a
timeline) determines when it starts

graphical setting of in and out points for each shot
(traditionally done by dragging the ends of the little
bar to resize, or cutting it with a razor tool)

video is rendered to a file at the press of a button

(frame numbers of each shot are read from an array and
the edited video is compiled)

i suppose a way to save "project" files would also be
useful, the start positions of each clip in the
timeline array and the start and end points for that
clip, basically the contents of the arrays i guess,
maybe written as a list

all the best
