The mixer screenshot feature is awesome (requested and described at Import Mixer Strip, Mixer Screenshot, Stem Export Select ), is there any chance of creating something similar for the editor window?
My particular use-case is that I’m using Ardour in my music degree, and for the audio production units I need to provide screenshots of sessions for the marker to see my process. Also, sharing huge screenshots of projects is cool and shows off how capable Ardour is at managing larger projects
Obviously it will be a bit trickier than the mixer feature, which (I presume) just uses the current res and keeps going until all the strips fit, while an editor window screenshot will have trickier decisions to make.
I’d suggest that perhaps it uses the current on-screen zoom/resolution (ie 1:1 pixel scale) and the caller (I’m envisioning a lua binding, a gui can come later if demand warrants) specifies the time range (maybe default to begin:end). It then renders all the tracks and automation ranges at their current visibility and sizes, extending the canvas in x and y until the timerange and visible lanes all fit.
Here’s a screenshot that I assembled in the gimp from two screen captures (I had the window open across three screens to get the width, then captured top and bottom halves of the editor rows, and cloned empty areas of the mixer and region strips on the sides to extend them down).
