I would understand that kind of comment from somebody who doesn't use
and video tools - as you suggested a BLAG maintener. But when I heat
it from Dan Sawyer who is a Linux writer and does professional video
production then that is completely different story. He did claim that
you need to compile kdenlive from source in order to make new features
work because in older releases you couldn't even separate audio from
video. Also video framework MLT that kdenlive uses has gone through
mayor changes in past few months.
BLAG linux is over year old and stuck at fedora 7 release so I
wouldn't give them a look if they don't plan to update to F9.

So I would love to try for myself and see how kdenlive looks and
works. If a linux video professional says that kdenlive is great I
guess he knows what he is taking about because he is putting his money
where his mouth is and using it in production.

I have been to cinelerra workshop and love it! But I would also try
other tools if somebody packages it for fedora.
