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 was one of those very very pissed off people.

To this day, the new iMovie (yes, even the 09 version) is inferior in many ways to iMovie HD.

It does have a few things going for it (more like iPhoto in-app database) but I stuck with HD as long as I could... which ended when I was given a USB video camera, which iMovie HD could not operate with.

I miss some of the multi-track features. But I miss speed adjustment, playback direction (forward / reverse), and in-app multi track audio editing the most.

At least, I haven't figured out how to do this all with the new iMovie...

And the playhead controls in the new iMovie are DAMN NEAR UNUSABLE. PAIN IN THE ASS!
