Akemi: Thank you for the recommendation and for the caveats! Sounds
like "The GIMP"
for the power and the long learning curve. We don't have Firewire so
that's not a problem.
I looked at their web site for a minute and some of the documentation
is available in
Spanish, which is a big plus for my wife. She can become our expert,
if we go with Cinelerra.
I'm going to try to get it with Yum now. Lanny
