hey, im running OME on arch linux and is really cool i just passed by to wish you luck and i hope to see more and more of OME in the future]]>
Did you take your exam? How did it go?
I’m really not trying to rush you or anything, I was just wondering if there were any news about open movie editor. I keep on cheking the site and have no news since december.
Please don’t tell you abandoned the project, that would be a shame, it’s a really great program…
I toyed with OME a bit on an UbuntuStudio install, and functionality-wise it was more or less what I was looking for (easy to use NLE for Linux with an intuitive UI), except for one thing. The scale on the timeline was too broad and I could find no way to adjust it.
I was trying to edit some public domain footage into a music video, and to cut up images and get them to work with the music, I was having to get down to very fine measurements. I could split clips easily enough at any point I wanted, but if they were too short, shorter than about ten seconds, I could not move them, I could only resize them, which was aggravating.
So my request/suggestion (which I realize might be hideously difficult, and I’m not a programmer, so I wouldn’t know) would be to either make the scale on the timeline adjustable (first preference) or else to enlarge it considerably, so that the user can work at a second by second level, if not frame by frame, with ease.
Other than that, it’s a great program, and the best iMovie-level editor on Linux. (Now if only there were a decent pro-level NLE, I’d be all set.)
thanks for your suggestion, there is a little tutorial at:
but it is a little out of date I have to admit.
I’m hoping that your next version of open movie editor might be a little more self-explanatory. I can’t figure out how to edit a simple avi file!
Maybe what’s needed is some tutorials on this site. So far I can’t find any tutorials that starts with the basics.
Thanks for reading my comments!]]>
