I’m started from tangolerra project made by Franco Iacomella and after an hard job with svg I made my personal mochup of Cinelerra called Cutiehd. But when I started to work on the mochup of Cinelerra 2.1cv I tryed to enable again the support of font antialias (xft), write a draft of Utf-8 support, rewrite some parts of titler code and adapt the svg plugin from the Cinelerrasv by “Simeon Völkel”. I know that these features can generate instability, so I decided to make a new package with it’s name and icon called Cinecutie, that can be consider more as “mochup” than a real “fork”

The basic principles of Documatic, and Semi-Automatic Filmmaking, in general, are that, instead of gathering tons of footage with a video camera, and then later meticulously sorting and organizing in a separate editing stage, you can use an Android device to roughly annotate and organize the video clips as they are being recorded. Then later, the system combines these annotations with the raw footage and intelligently organizes and “pre-edits” the footage into an Adobe Premiere Sequence.
