    There's a new update on the state of the OpenShot video editor application...

    Hm, PiTiVi seems to be quite similar, also when comparing the UI. I wonder how PiTiVi compares to OpenShot.

    PiTiVi uses GStreamer. OpenShot uses MLT (the same framework Kdenlive uses).

    OpenShot does NOT use MLT (See the blog post linked in the article, the developer addresses it).

    Pitivi uses GStreamer
    Kdenlive uses MLT
    Openshot uses a custom written library.

    Learn grammar, please. OpenShot uses MLT (present tense). OpenShot 2.0 will not use MLT (future). OpenShot 2.0 currently does not exist.

    Nice- I'd love to see if they can get some kind of functional GUI working on Ubuntu for tablets. That would be a sweet application, although render times would likely suffer a lot on a mobile device. Either way, it looks like Qt is demonstrating a lot of value recently where GTK's goals seem to be very different. I wonder what effect this will have as we move onto mobile platforms with more intensity, and whether GTK will be ready for that environment as well.

    Smart move moving to Qt. But the developer should really think about his decision of using PyQt instead of Qt/C++.
    If he writes it in Qt/C++, it will be very easy to port it to mobile platforms... And we want an open-source mobile application

    I've heard of OpenShot just a few times; I've heard of Pitivi far more, but...everytime I've heard Pitivi mentioned, it was to complain about it.

    No Qt vs GTK+ flamewars yet?

    I think everyone realizes that gtk+ is not as suitable for cross platform apps.

    This news is not so major, compared to this one: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...-mac-and-linux

    Openshot has managed to gather $45,028 via Kickstarter.

    Looks down at radeon and especially nouveau senior developers

    My personal experience several months ago was: Pitivi - usable but not stable, Openshot - usable and stable.
