Multimedia, AV In the past in order to make good home movies one needed either a Mac or a Windows PC. There were no good video editors for Linux in the past. Today with Jahshaka and Main Actor the things that could only be done on a Mac or a Wintel machine can now be done on a Lintel machine as well.

Home desktop user?

Those products looks very very interesting.

But one remark, i have not tried Jahshaka, but if the author is talking about home desktop user, i don't think that it can be compared to FinalCutPro4, which is a pro application. Or even is it as complete as AfterEffects?, if so it is better to describe it as a pro software.

Jahshaka seems more a product which mix some features of AfterEffets and FinalCutPro in a powerful home desktop package. But it seems to be far comparing to a FinalCutPro in the editing activity or AfterEffetcs in the compositing.

Concerning MainActor, i thinks it looks more complete than IMovie, so it would be better to compare it to FinalCutExpress. I did not try it, but according to the web site of the product, maybe it targets more advenced user than Imovie.
