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.

Do they really use it *still*?

Yes. They do.

As I mentioned previously in this thread, a lot of the development probably stays in-house to give a "proprietary edge."

Seems like conjecture on your part to me. If people who worked at ILM wouldn't post at some VFX forums, we wouldn't know that ILM has abandoned their former in-house compositing system CompTime for their new in-house system Zeno. Yet, you claim to know that CinePaint is still used. Any proof?

By the way, ILM recently purchased a site-wide license for The Foundry's Nuke. A nice, proprietary compositing system that uses the FFmpeg libraries. I love Open Source!

According to CinePaint, it still has studio development (scroll down to "CinePaint Secret Developers"): http://www.cinepaint.org/team.html
There is no reason to doubt this claim, as there is no reason for the studios to abandon such a versatile, valuable tool.

Do you have any proof against this claim? Seems like you are the one making conjecture.

By the way, CinePaint is not just used for VFX and animation, it's also used to touch-up regular footage (and in instances in which 32-bit color depth is needed).
