Hi Ehsan,

With the basic info you give, sounds like you could submit a GSOC proposal.

Some things to consider...

- You mention work you already did in this area, would you suggest
this has some use in blenders code base, or is this more of an example
of work you did in this area?
- There may be some conflict between your research and what makes for
generally useful features in a graphics/animation application (try
avoid conflicting goals).
- Suggest you go over user-tutorials, see where theres room for
improvement and take a look at blenders existing code.
- Students who have written patches in the area they propose to work
in have much greater chance of being accepted.
- You may want to contact devs to get feedback on initial ideas before
writing a proposal.
