My son and I tried to make sense of Cinelerra about a year ago. It
drove us nuts and seemed to demonstrate exactly why Open Source
Software doesn't win against market driven products you pay for. The
documentation was, at least at the time, almost nil, and it seemed to
us that nothing did what you would assume from using other program
like this under Windows. We couldn't figure it out at all.

Any pointers for complete and utter newbies who are trying to make
small videos? Any really good tutorials about?
