"The context of this review is that I was brand-new to video editing when I started with pitivi. So I fought with the interface. A lot of cursing and swearing. But I also fight with GIMP which is an awesome application that I'm just not familiar with. If you're new like me, you'll find that after all the fighting and confusion, you will be able to do basic editing without any prior experience or without ever reading the manual. Some really tricky bits, you might have to 'duck it' (web search) once or twice, but all things considered, this becomes usable without needing to go to school for digital arts, which is super!"
