For me, that's a huge bar to overcome and I've played a little with Cinelerra, the closest thing out there to an NLE, but damn if it didn't crash every chance it got.

Sadly like nearly everything that has existed for a while in this space... Cinelerra makes direct use of ffmpeg...which presents immense difficulties for us as a project because of its lag of plugin support.

Someone is going to have to appear and want to work with gst as a framework and make something new aimed at users like you.  Something heftier than what piviti is meant to be.. for users like me.  And it would be great if an editor aimed at you and an editor aimed at me, could share enough in common to make use of the same effects plugins and what not... and share some subset of them with something like cheese as well when it made sense.

The question is, as a project, what can we do to encourage this work to be done... short of paying someone to actually do it. We need it, the community needs its, but how do we go about finding and grooming the contributors to do it. I don't know... I just don't know.
