topic: linearRGB vs sRGB for filter effects
21:12:22 [ed]
21:12:53 [cabanier]
cabanier: I wanted Chris to be here to have this discussion
21:12:58 [Zakim]
21:13:28 [ed]
Zakim, [IPcaller] is dirk
21:13:28 [Zakim]
+dirk; got it
21:13:32 [cabanier]
cabanier: I understand why it's there, I don't think it's the default
21:13:46 [cabanier]
ed: should we postpone?
21:13:58 [cabanier]
cabanier: let's postpone
21:14:10 [cabanier]
topic: SVG attributes to presentation attributes
21:14:49 [cabanier]
krit: did you get my email about how to animate CSS attributes with SMIL
21:15:13 [cabanier]
krit: ed, you said you needed feedback from the development team
21:15:40 [krit]
21:15:59 [krit]
21:17:16 [ed]
ed: yes, sent offlist, but basically in agreement with the proposal
21:17:54 [cabanier]
krit: SMIL animation would be on top of the current CSS animations
21:18:30 [smfr]
smfr has joined #fx
21:19:02 [Zakim]
+ +1.408.636.aacc
21:19:08 [cabanier]
ed: the computed style would reflect animval
21:19:13 [smfr]
Zakim, aacc is me
21:19:13 [Zakim]
+smfr; got it
21:19:39 [ed]
s/ animval/ animval?
21:20:28 [cabanier]
ed: what is your recommendation?
21:20:52 [cabanier]
krit: 1. override style reflects current animations
21:21:04 [cabanier]
krit: 2. Introduce a new style for SVG animations
21:21:32 [cabanier]
krit: and the computed style would reflect this new style. could be called SMIL style
21:22:44 [cabanier]
cabanier: do you think the model are compatible?
21:22:49 [cabanier]
krit: yes, I think so
21:23:20 [cabanier]
cabanier: so they run independantly?
21:23:24 [cabanier]
krit: yes
21:23:45 [ed]
21:24:30 [ed]
ed: so is that image i just linked to correct now?
21:25:03 [cabanier]
cabanier has joined #fx
21:26:20 [cabanier]
ed: do we want to wait for corrections to the proposal?
21:26:55 [cabanier]
krit: the wiki is up to date
21:27:28 [cabanier]
cabanier: do you know what the new style is?
21:27:40 [cabanier]
krit: it's an abstract style that is implemented by the browser
21:28:12 [cabanier]
ed: animVal becomes a shorthand for getcomputedstyle but with typing. You skip the string serialization
21:28:21 [cabanier]
ed: that is fine with me
21:29:54 [cabanier]
resolution: issue #4 is accepted from wiki:
21:31:10 [ed]
to be clear, the solution is to introduce a new style for SVG animations, as described there
21:31:12 [cabanier]
ed: are there other transform issues?
21:31:22 [cabanier]
krit: we want to move to WD as soon as possible
21:31:35 [cabanier]
krit: I believe it will be done this week
21:32:16 [cabanier]
smfr: are we going to remove the DOM access methods?
21:32:24 [smfr]
21:32:24 [cabanier]
krit: yes
21:32:43 [cabanier]
smfr: CSS matrix, CSS transform value
21:33:31 [cabanier]
krit: and we'll have another discussion on FX, or SVG
21:33:39 [cabanier]
krit: it doesn't affect CSS any more
21:33:43 [cabanier]
ed: how so?
21:34:22 [cabanier]
krit: that is because CSS matrix is removed
21:34:39 [cabanier]
and we no longer have to describe how SVG and CSS interface
21:35:16 [cabanier]
cabanier: and the new keywords are accepted by the CSS people? (such as rotate(alpha, a, b)
21:35:21 [cabanier]
krit: yes
21:35:49 [cabanier]
krit: the discussion on that has stopped
21:36:07 [cabanier]
smfr: and transform-origin is defined for SVG?
21:36:23 [cabanier]
krit: yes, for SVG it will be (0, 0)
21:36:45 [cabanier]
smfr: the rotate with two parameters gives the author more to think about
21:37:23 [cabanier]
smfr: these 2 optional arguments may make it less clear about what is happening
21:37:39 [cabanier]
smfr: the rules are already complex
21:37:51 [cabanier]
smft: and no browsers currently implement it yet
21:38:34 [cabanier]
krit: these are just 2 arguments to align the CSS and SVG models
21:38:55 [cabanier]
krit: for current authors, it might be new
21:39:19 [cabanier]
krit: but it's needed for backward compatibility with SVG parsing rules?
21:39:24 [cabanier]
ed: when is the WD ready?
21:39:45 [cabanier]
krit: depends on the CSS WG
21:40:02 [cabanier]
ed: yes, I pinged them when they can make their resolution
21:40:39 [cabanier]
ed: let's skip the next topics since we need input from Microsoft and they are not here
21:41:47 [cabanier]
shepazu: about the transform spec, there were 12 topics called out, are we going to resolve it?
21:42:09 [smfr]
21:42:18 [cabanier]
krit: the WG draft spec doesn't say that all issues have to be resolved
21:42:34 [cabanier]
shepazu: yes, but we better get start on this
21:43:28 [cabanier]
shepazu: I've been talking to authors and they want different origins with a set of transforms
21:44:00 [cabanier]
krit: I don't think we want to support that for CSS3 transforms
21:44:07 [cabanier]
cabanier has joined #fx
21:44:23 [cabanier]
shepazu: that means it won't be there for 2-3 years at least
21:44:29 [cabanier]
krit: correct
21:44:49 [cabanier]
shepazu: what about tests? Aria has some test I believe
21:45:02 [hober]
21:45:25 [cabanier]
krit: Adobe is working on SVG inside of webkit and we're working on some tests
21:45:35 [cabanier]
Tav: but you need 2 working implementations for the tests
21:46:02 [cabanier]
ed: do you have the test working in a web template or using the CSS WG testing harnass?
21:46:23 [cabanier]
krit: no, they are just WebKit test but we can move them to W3C tests
21:47:09 [cabanier]
ed: the guidelines say that they don't accept SVG test. You need a HMTL wrapper
21:47:22 [cabanier]
ed: the tools don't support straight SVG
21:47:35 [cabanier]
krit: inline SVG should be possible
21:47:41 [ed]
s/the guidelines/the csswg testsuite guidelines
21:47:47 [cabanier]
shepazu: we should have both: inline and straight SVG
21:48:29 [cabanier]
shepazu: do we need 2 passing tests for HTML but do we need 2 passing test for SVG as well?
21:49:16 [cabanier]
smfr: we talked about different conformance classes in the spec. Not sure what the status is.
21:49:34 [cabanier]
shepazu: what is the status of the 2d/3d spec?
21:49:46 [cabanier]
smfr: I agree with tantek
21:49:59 [cabanier]
smfr: the major interop issues should be resolved
21:50:20 [cabanier]
smfr: agree that we should move to last call
21:50:41 [cabanier]
shepazu: not sure what LC accomplishes if we still have open issues
21:51:04 [cabanier]
smfr: tantek believes that they want to drop prefixes as soon as possible
21:51:30 [cabanier]
shepazu: but we don't have conforming implementations right?
21:51:45 [cabanier]
shepazu: what does dropping prefixes have to do with LC?
21:52:07 [cabanier]
smfr: well, the sooner you do LC the faster you can go the CR
21:52:37 [cabanier]
shepazu: isn't it more reasonable to agree on when to drop prefixes than to rush the spec?
21:52:40 [cabanier]
ed: I agree
21:53:23 [cabanier]
shepazu: if there is a full test suite that tests each feature and everyone passes is, at that point you can drop prefixes
21:53:56 [cabanier]
shepazu: his goal is putting the horse behind the cart.
21:54:14 [cabanier]
smft: this was discussed at length. It's been covered already
21:54:14 [dino]
read the thousands of emails
21:55:37 [cabanier]
smfr: I believe tantek's proposal was similar to yours
21:55:54 [cabanier]
shepazu: I will read up on the process and take it to the list
21:56:10 [smfr]
21:56:12 [cabanier]
shepazu: I want to move this forward faster
21:57:07 [cabanier]
shepazu: we've been talking about this at w3c and we want to move forward on this spec asap too
21:57:17 [cabanier]
shepazu: let us know if you need help
