It also only really deals with AVI files. Even so, both VirtualDub and
AVIsynth are both stupendously useful pieces of software that I use daily.
The chief frustration of this is that software like the avcodec and avformat
libraries that mplayer uses are clearly very much better than the low level
file I/O routines used by things like FCP and Premiere. VirtualDub is by
comparison also incredibly fast at applying filters. I wish some of that
speed and flexibility was available to the higher end software. Perhaps it's
impossible to do that in software of much greater complexity, but I don't
think it's too much of a stretch to assume that Adobe and Apple are writing
for a saleable feature set, as opposed to performance.
