Ok, well you got me on the first one. There isn't TOTAL LACK of high quality software. There are many, many outstanding first rate apps writen for Linux. But, the majority of apps, are bug ridden betas and alphas, it's these apps that far out number, and hinder the on lookers to Linux. It took me years of trying this program and that program to get to a set of tools that I can use every day that don't crash.Originally Posted by oldcpu
To qualify the Not a video production app that even comes close to entry level apps on Windows statement. For entry level video production, I consider to be, Sony Vegas Studio, anything by Magix, Priemere Elements, Sonic MyDVD series, and even Microsoft's Movie Maker, to name a couple. I've tried several video production apps for Linux. Kino, Cinelerra, Linux Video Studio (for my DC30), I have not used Blender, Jashaka, and definetly not Eyeon's DFX compositing system BTW, I'd rather use Windows Movie Maker than Main Actor.
Take away the capability to pirate these Windows applications, and I think the nature of the ball game would change.
How true that is. Let me state this though. When I bought my DVCII, this gave me not just a hardware based mpeg2 capture device, but editing software, soundtrack composing software, and DVD authoring software, all for $199. All of the software was entry level, however, even this software if far above anything I've used in Linux. Considering it is 3-4years, speaks aloud how slowly video production is coming for Linux.

Now these are high end linux commercial apps (well beyond the price range of any individual user) and comparing them to the entry level commercial windows apps is not fair. But it does illustrate one must qualify a statement about video production applications.
