VSE effect strip addon

Hi there
Is there a way to write own effect stips? For better understanding: I want to write some generator for different linegraphics (eg. lightning effect as seen in the terminator movies)

Best Regards Michael

I don’t believe that you can write an effect strip in Python and directly drawing on the render image seems reserved for core coding. Perhaps you could hack the mask tool to generate shapes then access them in the VSE as a mask strip. I don’t know how you would make random marched lines? Perhaps you have more flexibility simply creating a new scene with generated effect in 3D view.
