Clearly, a lot of this is obscure to most artists using Cinelerra, as it should be.  Also, documentation is lagging behind development.

If you have any interest in joining our development and documentation team, let us know.

There are a number of basic development requirements needed to integrate the features listed above while we continue to support the upgrading Cinelerra to the 4.6 standard set by the developer while building in ways to integrate appropriate  community tools.  

We expect even more updates within the next 3-4 weeks. 

We will be exhibiting at NAB in April in Las Vegas.
