"In theory, practice and theory are the same. In practice, they're not. :)"
Want I'm looking into is find want is missing on the market of fimmaking
I don't believe anyone can compete with Final Cut Pro but maybe we can
It can be very simple tools, like a tool for location scouting or P2P
Maybe just "white papers", a lot of people forget that documentation can be
as useful than software. That's why I'm installing a Wiki on the new Free
Film Project site; freefilmproject.org
If anyone as any suggestions please reply to the list.

In theory, practice and theory are the same. In practice, they're not. :)
Seriously, I completely agree that we should be working on being as
cross-platform as practical, and that we should be looking at Industry
(That's one of the things that got me so interested in Renderman and NURBS
for developing CGI stuff.)
I tend to work on the idea that you can start with commercial tools, and
migrate away as and when you can produce tools that'll do the same things.
Where I would go with that is to look at writing plugins for something like
Final Draft and Final Cut Pro, but at some point look to develop an Open
Source package that does basically the same stuff, reads/writes the same
There is nothing written that can't be improved upon.
There are only two questions that remain, therefore - do you /want/ to
improve on them, and (if so) do you want to improve on them /now/.
