Before OpenRaster was even thought of I was working on a format for a
video editor that included animation, this format served as the
inspiration for the XML I used in GEGL which in turn provided one of
the bases of experience that OpenRaster is built on. The original
format I refer to I called oxide and it is documented here
http://codecave.org/oxide/ not sure if it really has that much to do
with OpenRaster but it can serve as inspiration for something else.
Note that the interpolation methods for the time/value keyframed
property animation was also possible to specify.
