There is the GstVideoFilter base class (trivially derived from the
generic GstBaseTransform).  There are some elements in gst-plugins-good
using it [1].  These should illustrate pretty well how to do it.  For
more information, refer to the documentation of BaseTransform [2].

PS.: Please don't post to the list by replying to random topics.  This
