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.

I wasn't aware it was used for VFX and animation. I would base my belief that its near abandoned based on the UI, and the lack of recent news,development and releases.

last "News" on front page from over a year ago.

They do mention on the team page that studios develop it in secret before suddenly releasing it. So more accurately, its either being actively developed by studios secretly, or its been abandoned. No one will ever know what the fate of it is unless a new release appears from the sky.
