GEGL being a graph based image processing/compositing framework is
lends itself well for building animation based systems as well as
static image things like GIMP. One of the projects that I abandoned
development of and folded into GEGL when GEGL development was
restarted some years back was a combined video sequencing/compositing
system. Some of the examples in the GEGL source tree are also simple
animations driven from C or ruby/python.

GEGL has input nodes and output nodes built on top of the ffmpeg
libraries (quite probably bitrotted, but salvagable). Perhaps similar
nodes should be created along the same pattern as well that use
GStreamer instead.
