While the latest Humble Indie Bundle is pulling in money at a fierce rate (up to nearly $500k USD in one day), that isn't true for all open-source projects. At the start of the month I mentioned Novacut, which attempts to be yet another open-source video editor. What Novacut is trying to do different from the rest is become the world's first real-time collaborative video editor designed for HDSLR cameras with support for cloud-based storage and rendering. Unfortunately, they're struggling a bit on Kickstarter...
even if you don't believe they can achieve making a world leading distributed video editor, they will still do lots of useful work in couchdb, dmedia, gstreamer, gnonlin. this helps opensource video editing in general, and probably other projects as well. i am quite interested in using dmedia for stills photography.
Why do you say that?
He isn't making any ad hominem attacks, nor attacks of any kind really. If I were a strong novacut supporter I could see how his post could be disheartening but that doesn't make him a dbag.
