    The only thing I don't get is how this is going to work without the control surface - I've used Lightworks before and it used to come with a special transport/editing panel, and the whole editing style was centred around that.

    I didn't realise it ran on Linux though - the first version of Lightworks I used ran on DOS, and the other one was on Windows XP. Both of these machines were specialised (and expensive!) turnkey systems.

      Unfortunately Pro/Engineer for linux was killed for lack of demand.

          Hopefully this means the soon-to-be-open-sourced code is currently undergoing some revitalization and being brought into a state where it's more likely to succeed as a free software project with documentation, a clean build process, etc.
          i think it rather means that the code is being stripped of third-party-IP features.

          it's hard to believe it will be a fully opensource product. but let's wait and see what develops.

            A quick search

            What is really needed is something more general purpose like Autocad. Unfortunately not even under wine due to the program going to .net nastiness. What is even worse is that under a virtual machine Autocad is absolutely horrendous (even with acceleration enabled).

            RHEL has support for loads of software that don't commonly get thrown around forums. Unfortunately autodesk is currently only supporting Maya, but the first result in the above llink claims to be the main alternative to autocad (what company says they are the main alternative anyways?). I have no idea, but there you are.

              You forgot Autodesk Softimage (was XSi).

                And, in related news: Full HD 1080p raw capture card with native Linux drivers from the manufacturer itself:



                Intensity HDMI Capture Card

                Sounds so good I'll quote it:
                Installation: PCI Express 1 lane, compatible with 1,4,8,16 lane PCI Express slots on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. Please check the Blackmagic Design website for system compatibility information.
                They even have a cute Tux!

                Adobe, your days are numbered!

                  FWIW, I work for an engineering company and we use almost entirely AutoCAD, Revit, and Microstation. None of which run on Linux. We have our hands tied as far as what we have to use, our clients dictate the program to us so we can't just switch even if we did like an alternative.

                    There are several projects that are based on the powerful and robust Open Cascade libraries as a framework.
                    I really don't know what are the status of these projects but you should keep an eye on them.

                    For example, there are FreeCAD and HeeksCAD and moreover they are both free softwares...
