completed by: Mikhail Ivchenko

mentors: Torsten Rahn, René Küttner, Dennis Nienhüser

In this task the menu entries regarding "Record Movie" should get synced up:

  • In the Qt version there is a menu entry "Record Movie". Please add a "Stop recording" entry below which is grayed out by default.
  • when not recording only the "Record Movie" should look enabled, the Stop one should be grayed out
  • when recording the "Record Movie" entry should be grayed out and the "Stop recording" should be enabled
  • The "Start/Stop" toggle in the dialog should be removed.
  • Test the whole functionality and try to find bugs: Try to create several movies, "Overwrite" an existing movie with a new one, etc..
