While the latest Humble Indie Bundle
is pulling in money at a fierce rate (up to nearly $500k USD in one day), that isn't true for all open-source projects. At the start of the month I mentioned Novacut
, which attempts to be yet another open-source video editor. What Novacut is trying to do different from the rest is become the world's first real-time collaborative video editor designed for HDSLR cameras with support for cloud-based storage and rendering. Unfortunately, they're struggling a bit on Kickstarter.
On their Kickstarter project page
to fund initial development they have raised nearly $21,000 USD. However, per Kickstarter requirements, unless they reach their goal of $25,000 USD in the next 62 hours, they will not be funded. So if a real-time cloud-enabled collaborative video editor that's open-source is of interest to you, they may be interested in your donation. (If not, you should consider a Phoronix Premium subscription
On this page
is more information about the aspirations of the Novacut project. There's also lots of information on the Ubuntu-hosted Novacut Wiki
for those interested.
