Novacut: An Open-Source Cloud-Based Video Editor

Other people have designed cloud-based video editors, but few have as large a vision as Novacut. This collaborative video editing system is coming to life just at a time when bandwidth in many areas is becoming broad enough for such efforts.

There's no denying that video editing is labor-intensive. If the video editing process can be divided among multiple workers, the finished product can be produced faster and with less effort. Stories that would otherwise not be told now have a better chance of being told. We are all becoming richer as a result.

Although not available for public use yet, Novacut is well worth following. This background video by some Novacut fans does a great job of introducing Novacut. You can follow the Novacut blog at The Novacut Kickstarter campaign is at
