If we don't already have a single document (a.k.a pdf or html) with RS media, directory layouts (for SD), file formats (e.g. .bcn, .sh) a set of simple test case files, etc. then we should make one. There is a lot of good information in these threads, but its distributed and that makes it not practical. Also there is some o good information on RS.TK.
I'm interested in helping develop new software GUI clients, and command line clients for the RS Media that will be more platform independent(i.e. runs on Linux, Mac OSX, Solaris, AIX,a nd Windows) but to do that we need to have a baseline document that provides as muchaccurate and up-to-date detail as we have available for the RS Media with respect to the Media Suite and its interaction with the RS Media.
Is there such a document already?, Or are the cumulative threads on this message board the best we can do? From reading the threads I know Nocturnal and a couple of others have done what looks like most (if not all) of the discovery process already. Certainly enough to produce a base document that we can use to produce a developer's guide to the RS Media.
Anyone intrested in doing this? Or has this effort already been done, but not available?
If there is no such document , I'm interested in helping put one together. Actually we need three high quality documents:
1) A complete developers guide to the RS Media
2) A complete user's guide to the RS Media
3) A tutorial for the RS Media (complete with a few sets of examples)
The Manual that comes with RS Media while nice is lacking.
The online help that comes with the Media suite while nice is to say
the least incomplete.
I think we can do better, any takers?
