The best one

You left out the best one of all: Cinelerra.
It can do anything you can imagine, if you can get it installed.

Never in my life have I been as mad at the proprietary actions that Apple has pinned on Microsoft for so many years than now. It seems that Apple, our "innocent" company has decided to buy out any and all of good linux cinema software today. If you don't believe me, look at Apple Shake, and also Silicon Grail's Rayz. This wouldn't be so bad with the exception that I rely on many of those applications and use LINUX as my ONLY platform. I am so unbelievably mad that I could just kill!!!

Now I have to spend countless tens of thousands of dollars re-outfitting my VFX studio with new Apple (eww) computers.

Thank God Apple can't take away the price tag of linux, as well as the stability needed to make great render farms!

umm... why not spend significantly less funding open source development of a new app? There are lots of support libraries out there already, like gstreamer, etc. Filmgimp/Cinepaint is available, and being developed. Add the features you need to open source. No point complaining about the lack of open source, and then buying proprietary junk.

Because not all production studios have coders on hand to produce apps that could perform those kinds of functions. In that case, hiring the coders to do the work would end up being far more costly and time consuming than switching to an already existing set of apps.
