I make little tutorials for blender. Most of the time I get like 500
hits or less, way less. My blender video video got 15,700 hits! I
think this says something about how important this little bit of
blender is. I really do think it is a place that could benefit from
some more attention. I do under stand that it is limited but it is the
best editor on Linux that I have ever used and I have tried them all
(free ones that is). It rocks because it does the job and it does not
crash. ALL THE OTHERS CRASH ON ME! They also can't do half of what
they should in any reasonable amount of time. Sometimes I think
someone should cut the blender video editor out of blender and run
with it. Problem is that it would then loose all the cool devs and
leaders that got it this far.
