The new emerging NLE for GNU/Linux

What follows is a summary of Lumiera’s Data Handling Backend

This is the foundation layer responsible for any high performance or high volume data access. Within Lumiera, there are two main kinds of data handling:

  • The Session and the object models manipulated through the GUI are kept in memory. They are backed by a storage backend, which provides database-like storage and especially logging, replaying and “Undo” of all ongoing modifications..

  • Media data is handled frame wise — prefetching data asynchronously.

The goal is to optimize CPU utilization; large scale data IO will be performed asynchronously. Data retrieval and processing of prerequisites will be scheduled such as to manage the rendering just in time.
