I'm Often Surprised

At how much open-source software I use. From Open Office to Gimp (open-source Photoshop). Inkscape is an open - source Illustrator-like program. And of course Blender is an excellent 3D animation program.

Chipmunk pigs?
The three pieces of software we just haven't gotten away from are Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe AfterEffects, and Magix Samplitude.

Cinefx is an open - source AfterEffects-type application although I haven't gotten it to run and I doubt it's nearly as sophisticated as AE, especially for what we do with AE. The same issue is with FCP and Samplitude. We need to be able to import/export OMF files. We need professional color-correction tools. We need to be able to put effects on segments or "objects" rather than on entire tracks.

Hmm... I came here to trash what was a clearly spam comment but it either got deleted or Google found a way to make it disappear.

I guess I'll go to bed now.
