I spent today hanging out with a friend of mine in San Francisco who does 3D modeling, rendering, and video editing for a living. While not a developer, he's a computer savvy user who can deal with complex user interfaces. After watching him use Adobe Premiere and After Effects for half an our, I did a short demo of PiTiVi. I wish I could say the demo went well, but, in fact, it crashed several times. Talking with him was useful because he has used three major commercial editors: Premiere, Vegas, and Final Cut. He's also familiar with Maya, and After Effects. The interview was casual, so I didn't record or take notes on the interview. A brief summary of what I learned is available here.
