I had started a thread over at RedUser where I frequent much more than I do here, discussing IFX's Piranha 7, which was released at NAB, with a MAJOR price drop to $995, and an no-time-limit, feature-restricted, downloadable trial version. For those unfamiliar with Piranha (which is just about everyone), it is a GPU accelerated NLE and VFX/Motion Graphics finishing "platform". It's not really fair to call it a suite, since its a single program that does just about everything, as opposed to a handful of programs that you have to continually move your project between. In any case, if you, like me, are a die-hard Linux fan, Piranha represents one of a very limits number of professional-grade tools available to independents like me, in a price-range I can afford. Piranha has been around for quite a while, just, until now, priced out reach for all but the 1%. With the release of Piranha 7, IFX has also released a OS X port as well.

Anyway, I digress... the link to the discussion on RedUser, along with a very unprofessional YouTube video I made to help get people started with the interface, etc.

I'll try and keep up on this thread as well.
