[Cin] Cinelerra's error very serious.

- The first time I reported this problem... it went unnoticed.
- The second time I made mention about the absurdity of mixing the project
upload wizard with the file upload wizard, and asked for at least one
warning when loading a new project, working on one that has not been saved,
before of the load of the new one, I was answered, that this would be
annoying for veteran users.
- Now I have been surprised by the good reaction from solving something so
serious, about overwriting a video as an xml.
- I have seen that other veteran users also do not like the media upload
wizard to the project and only use the "Create new resources only" option
and even go so far as to say that it is very annoying that the default
version is "Replace current project "
- To me the media upload assistant seems surreal. It is cumbersome, useless
and also dangerous. But this is still a personal assessment, less the
dangerous option, this is real.
- I am a person who keeps my word, if at least the "dangerous" point is
solved I will continue writing, using, recommending cinelerra and of course
notifying the errors... that as Phyllis told me, I have an easy time
finding them. But this event makes me take a break because of my
responsibility as a teacher and tutorial writer, being as I am, I would
feel very bad if someone loses an important video and cannot retrieve it
with an application that I have recommended. :'-(
- If I had to rate Cinelerra and his team from 1 to 10 I would rate it 9.5,
because of how good they are both. I have always been treated well and
given more attention than I expected and incidents I have reported have
been quickly resolved.
