Phoronix: Lightworks Is Not As Open As Some Would Like
Lightworks has been talked about for the past two years as an open-source video editor and the Linux client was delayed multiple times. Lightworks ended up beginning a very limited alpha last month, but not everyone is happy...

So a pitivi dev complains that a competing technology that is much more capable than that sorry pitivi shit is coming to make them obsolete. And we should listend to him of course. C'mon admit it pitivi doesn't work and doesn't do what you want it to. It's so bad that even if that lightworks never gets open sourced it's still good for linux. Stop being so butthurt with that they are not good for the community shit! You had your time, you had your chances and you blew it by being incompetents and unable to write a fucking application in 10 years.
You of course are a developer of *some* successful opensource project and that's why you are throwing 8055 advices, ha?!
Seriously its not even released yet, after its released and then its not as open as It should be then complain not before, It would take along time to comb through millions of lines to make sure its sutable for release as a open project.
Cinelerra is still the only professional OSS video editor. Jashaka was also there for a while, but died of. The problem with Cinelerra(-cv) always have been suspicious code origin and total lack of any form of stability. It simply always crash after a few minutes. Too bad it was mostly feature complete to compete with pseudo-professional apps.
KDenLive is currently the best hope. Their current under the hood push to turn the amateur codebase into a future proof one is a clean sign that they have long term plans to be competitive. They also recently added a lot of advanced features like color-space based advanced color management and object tracking for layer synchronization.
