Cinelerra does seem to be under-appreciated and I'd love to see more discussion about it in the mainstream Linux press.
I spent some time playing with it last year and was quite impressed. I was, without too much difficulty, able to make the main screen pan across a high-res still photo, and in the corner a stamp-sized video from my mini-DV camera was *rotating*. Useful? I don't know, but it was cool!
This seems to be a good way to introduce people to Free Software. After all, AFAIK, it only runs on Linux, and not Windows. Linux killer app, anyone?
One might be tempted to wonder how many patents it steps on, however, especially considering all its media-rich dependencies.
