Thanks for the article.
I use by preference cinelerra/kino and kdenlive. Out of this i wanted to share my experience
and comments as well.
The crashing of my cinelerra (CV version compiled from source on a ubuntu 64 bit and 32 bit
platform) is no problem (I had it only some 5 times; i am using cinelerra for about 6 months).
I think this crashing critic is sometimes overdone.
Worth to say about cinelerra is the very extended manual.
I hope that cinelerra will improve on capturing. I use kino for capturing instead.
I admit the steep learing curve but it is worth to do. Some critics is the result of not
having spent enough time to learn cinelerra.
Kino is working well. I have read that development stopped besides bug fixing because the
effort to convert kino to multitrack is big. One of the devs is now in the kdenlive project.
Kdenlive is working fine as well. It is clear that kdenlive is still under heavy development.
It already has a lot of useful features. I have met some bugs but found workarounds (picture
in picture sizing; titling). It is a very promising application.
I have tried other applications (Lives, Pitivi) but left them because I did not like the gui
(pure personal appreciation) and because they were earlier in development than
Blender is the next one I will explore.
