Anybody ever used this?
I think about trying it but the doc's make it sound a little nasty to compile plus all that I could find about it outside the website were comments like 'only the developer knows how to do something with it'.
Any ideas,clues or experience?

I haven't used it, i simply stumbled over a description in the
linuxformat issue 31.

They say; cinelerra is the resurrection of broadcast 2000
and is aimed at the power user. It is a complete audio and
video production environment.
The emphasis is on power and features rather then ease of
use. Features render farm and multi-processor. Not for the
regular desktop user (lfx review not mine) Main actor should
be a better choise if you go for quick and easy.
The cinelerra website warns about compiling from source
for being difficult and that one should try to get the RPM's

I read all that and putting rpm's into gentoo isn't a too good idea anyway.
But where I have trouble is in understanding what that thing is supposed to do.
I'll just try to put the thing on tomorrow and see what I get out of it.

Sounds like it could be a video editing suite. Actually, I used BC2000 a couple of times... it didn't have a particularly nice interface, but by Christ it was crammed of functions! If Cinelerra is half as good (and I expect it will be seeing as it is to BC as Fluxbox is to Blackbox), it's a damn good suite.

Go get it!
