About this project

Final Cut Pro X has successfully alienated many industry professionals, and if nothing else, it's showed us that the world needs a cross platform, free, stable video editor from a community that has the interests of video editors in mind, not their own bottom line.

Blender has been a stable, cross platform 3d animation and motion graphics platform for years now, and already has rudimentary video editing capability.

I have not contacted the official Blender Foundation or its group of developers about this idea, so all of this might well be possible for free, from the dev team of Blender itself.  However, I thought it might be a novel idea to get it, well, kickstarted.  So with the money from Kickstarter, an open source developer will be hired to write the necessary code to improve Blender's Video Sequence Editor.  All code will be released as GPL code so that it is ensured to remain open source and free to everyone, regardless of what kind of computer they have!

Please note that this kickstarter idea is in no way endorsed by the Blender developers or the Blender Foundation.
