Bug Description

in honor of ubuntu's bug #1, freemixer's is going to be similar.

the big majority of video artists use propietary software, besides the most common freedom issues this rises in all userspaces. to video artists this means having to adapt their creation to their tool, which obviously means not having their art to be as they like, they have limits, hence they are not free creators.

in the other hand, and not possibly ignored, the number one app to have total freedom max/msp/jitter is also propietary (eventhough there is a not that well working version pure data). but this app gives a too low-end freedom, and most artists don't have the technical knowledge or time to design their tools from scratch and from so low. they don't want to design tools, they want to use those tools to make their art.

so the bug number one to fix is giving total freedom, software freedom, creative freedom, and have that complete freedom easily.
