AV Foundation for iOS and OS X® Programming—Get Started Fast!

 

If you develop media-rich iOS or OS X apps, you can do amazing things with Apple’s AV Foundation. However, the framework is extremely large, reliant on cutting-edge language features, and poorly documented. Now, there’s a more productive way to master these immensely powerful technologies: Bob McCune’s Learning AV Foundation.

McCune’s live presentations and GitHub projects have already helped thousands of Apple developers get started with AV Foundation. Building on his experience, McCune helps you gain true mastery by creating real-world apps, hands-on.

You’ll build a voice memo app, custom video player, video editor, and an image/video camera app. As you proceed, you’ll master all the techniques you need to write your own advanced media apps from scratch. Throughout, McCune provides carefully crafted challenges and complete starter apps—all designed to help you deepen your understanding and make the most of Apple’s breakthrough media framework.

 

COVERAGE INCLUDES

  • Understanding how AV Foundation fits in Apple’s media environment and each of its key areas of functionality
  • Enabling your apps with audio playback and recording features
  • Enhancing video playback to deliver a richer, more dynamic experience
  • Using AV Kit to match your user interfaces with iOS Videos or OS X QuickTime Player
  • Developing media capture apps with real-time video processing using OpenGL ES and Core Image
  • Implementing custom video players
  • Integrating advanced capture features such as video zooming, face detection, barcode scanning, and high frame rate capture
  • Mixing multiple audio tracks and automating volume control
  • Building sophisticated non-linear, non-destructive editing apps
  • Adding advanced video editing capabilities, such as video transitions and animation effects

Synopsis:

The massive success of apps like Instagram, iMovie, and Vine proves that users want tools to help them capture, edit, and share their lives. If you want to build those apps for iOS or OS X, you need to understand Apple's most powerful media framework: AV Foundation. Until now, however, this meant wrestling with Apple's massive, out-of-date API documentation. Now, there's a more productive and efficient alternative. Learning AV Foundation helps you gain real-world mastery by teaching each aspect of the framework in the context of building real world applications.

By the time you finish, you'll have built a voice memo app, custom video player, video editor, and an image and video camera app — and you'll have mastered all the techniques you need to write your own advanced media apps with AV Foundation. Most chapters contain additional optional exercises, to help you further deepen your understanding. Learning AV Foundation comes with a complete collection of starter apps that abstract away visual aspects, so you can focus solely on AV Foundation without getting bogged down in supporting infrastructure.

Coverage includes:

  • Understanding the AV Foundation media environment
  • Basic techniques for working with media: playback, recording, and more
  • Basic and advanced media capture
  • Media creation and editing: composing media, mixing audio, creating video transitions, and layering animated content
  • Advanced topics, including real-time audio and video effects
  • Integrating AV Foundation with Core Audio
