I am not going to retype what Novacut is all about, as it is much better explained by the developers themselves. What I am going to say -and I believe it needs no explanation- is that Linux needs a professional video editor. Will Novacut provide what we've been waiting for? That I do not know, but I sure hope so.
The amount of work, money and passion put into this project is tremendous and, by that alone, I am confident that the team won't stop until they deliver. What they now need is a few more thousand dollars to be pledged on Kickstarter. If the $25,000 goal is reached by Friday, they win them. If not, they get nothing. As of now, $18,617 have been raised. If you have a few dollars to spare, why not invest them in a project you will surely benefit from as well? And while I am here, you should do that for every open source software you use. If it's free, it doesn't mean it was created for free and even the smallest donation is always more than welcome.
Well, that's it for now. Just getting the word out. Oh, expect a more in-depth article once Novacut is released. ;)
