Location of VSE Text Strip in Blender Source Code

I want to see and edit the source code of Blender’s Video Sequence editor text strip. I am new and I have no idea where to start.

based on what I have searched online, it’s not in


Any help?

The code that “renders” text strip is in source/blender/sequencer/intern/effects.cc, mostly the do_text_effect function. The properties (DNA/RNA) of the strip are defined in their usual places, and then there’s python code that controls how the UI is laid out.

You can check this (WIP) PR that adds text shadow blurring and outline for where the things are and which code places get modified. #121478 - WIP: VSE: Text shadow blur / outline - blender - Blender Projects
