Multimedia, AV With the explosion of (mostly Canon's) video HD dSLRs in the last few months, purchase decisions for video editors have shifted, depending on which editor can deal with h.264 the best way. Until recently, users had to either use "proxy" files, or transcode to an intermediate format. Then, Adobe's Premiere Pro CS5 came in to change this by being the first video editor to fully utilize nVidia's CUDA technology and achieve real-time playback for Quicktime dSLR, and AVCHD footage.

Linux video editors are not falling behind on the pro scene. Many studios use linux and custom apps to edit their movies (just search for linux + hollywood in google). And there is for example Piranha from IFX which is a linux suite for video editing used by big names like Dreamworks and Pixar.

Let's hope for a consumer version.

This begs the question: what is the best distro to use for that kind of software? RHEL? I use Ubuntu. Should I switch to Fedora?

Some of that software looks absolutely amazing. I am surprised that they havenĀ“t decided to offer a consumer version of some of their offerings.

I, for one, would love to see that and would gladly pay for it.

I don't think you understand the workflow of film, they are NOT being edited on Linux almost EVERY film is edited on AVID on Mac or PC.

Most visual effects are done on Linux through Flame, NUKE, Shake, Maya ETC

and most animation is done on Linux with Maya, Soft Image

Finishing and editing are totally different.

But most Linux editors SUCK!
