Multimedia, AV My husband and I are thinking of buying the Canon Optura Xi camcorder soon (in our opinion, the best DV camera at this range). Because I run so many OSes I always have 'embedded' in me this "thing" to only buy supported hardware by the major OSes. I am sure Optura's DV part will work fine with some Linux tools, but then what? How do I easily edit my... masterpiece and burn DVDs or VCDs via an integrated solution and send them to our families in Greece and France?

" Main Actor is segfaulting on load (Slackware 9.1) and Cinerella crashed while moving down a scrollbar. ;) "

Ouch.... Can't repeat Cinelerra crash behaviour here (Cinelerra 1.1.8 on Mandrake 9.2)...

As for Weta -- They do the majority of work on Linux workstations - They use Maya to do most of the modelling and animations - Rendering happens with Pixars PRMan... Compositing (read video editing) is done with Shake...

Disney Now does 100% of its work on Linux workstations, ILM more than 90% etc, etc....

This is kinda irrelevant because these large scale productions have very different requirements to mar and pop putting together their own home movie of their grand children.
