"Fully-featured video editing tool for advanced users."
Features easy to discover. Supports common codex types. Supports conversion, crop, resize, multiple a/v data streams, subtitles, filters and effects. Opensource extensible feature set. Compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux platforms. Small memory footprint.
No Online help. Requires in-depth knowledge of digital media formats, editing techniques, and filter-set parameters. Suffers from performance bottlenecks at both core element and plugin levels.
A fully featured, extensible digital video editor for the sophisticated user. The interface is easy enough to understand for quickstarts. Although a wiki (http://www.avidemux.org/admWiki/doku.php) provides in depth documentation, the platform and plugins will benefit from online documentation. One hopes this project will mature into a lean and mean 64-bit platform.
