    It's an excellent program in its own right. The process of converting frames into individual images is a good tool when performing special effects editing and composition, the live VJ features are a nice touch, and the direct connection to the Jack Audio Connection Kit is a very unique feature among video editors in Linux. That being said, the software is very poorly named. This is not a problem in the use of the software, but the use of any search engine to find information on this software package, whether it's to find tutorials or tricks (or solutions to problems) results in a huge amount of false positives. Granted, you can search on specific websites for more specific results, and the addition of Linux in the search can have a better chance of getting something relevant, but this still makes finding information on the tool (outside of its own website) difficult at best. All in all, I hope to see more of this package, and especially to eventually see a more unique name that makes it more searchable over all.

    It works. It supports pretty much everything you can think of. It doesn't crash in the hands of a casual use

    The whole thing configures successfully, compiles without a single error, and installs

    This is just about the most horrid package it's been mu misfortune to ever discover. The whole thing configures successfully, compiles without a single error, and installs.

    This is surely one of the best open source projects.

    This is just about the most horrid package it's been mu misfortune to ever discover. The whole thing configures successfully, compiles without a single error, and installs. Then when you go to run the damn thing, you get an error that claims it can't load "libweed". How in the *hell* that could escape configuring, compiling, and linking escapes me completely. Furthermore, there is no damn "libweed-devel" source to be had *anywhere*, and this dependency can not be resolved. I will not be recommending this PoS to anyone.

    Works great on Slackware. I'm not a pro at video editing but it's useful for my for editing some videos.
