I want to be candid here with everyone here. My experience has
convinced me that KDE does not provide a good cross-platform solution.
Others will disagree, but the point is that I am not convinced, and I
am not interested in putting my energy into that approach. However, I
think Qt is fantastic in that regard, and I have started a new project
based on Qt that re-uses a project name from the MLT family: Shotcut.

Currently, I have no intention to try to achieve the sophistication of
Kdenlive, and I have some other goals that Kdenlive does not share -
for example, integration with Melted playout server. More
