Multimedia, AV I followed the hype: Reddit, Slashdot's front page, months of thumbs up on my blog and various video forums by Linux users for OpenShot. Given that I'm longing for a usable Linux video editor since 2003, and given that OpenShot version 1.0 had just been released, I naturally gave it a go, by also downloading its provided dependencies on my Ubuntu Linux 9.10.

For example, the open source nature of Cinepaint is the main reason why the major film studios and major animation houses use it, and not Photoshop.


Do they really use it *still*? The list of major movies its been used on is a bit dated, there hasn't been a release in some time. Its interface is gimp 1.0. The "next generation" rewrite glasgow is the most absurdly unstable piece of software I've ever attempted to use. It is *not* getting much development from major ,movie companies. If its being updated, those changes aren't making their way back into the trunk.
