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.

It is not used to create effects/animation -- it is used to touch-up CG work, especially when combined with live footage.

I would base my belief that its near abandoned based on the UI, and the lack of recent news,development and releases.

Not sure what the UI has to do with the activity of the project, except I think that the CinePaint developers are trying to make a GTK2 version.

At any rate, it is often beneficial to foster a longer attention span and to look more closely, before jumping to a conclusion.

Scroll down the Sourceforge page that you link. See all the recent bug reports? Folks are obviously busy using it.

There is even an entry by the project's administrator from about a month ago.

If you want to get more details on these posts, click on the "Develop" link below the "CinePaint" title.
