Specifically for restoring animation I have evaluated my options as well.

For animations you want different layers, Cinelerra has that. So you can 
argue, if you are able to drag photo's to a timeline, you are all set.

But what Cinelerra does not really expose is the technical aspects for 
example one, two's, in betweens. I think you would visually want to see 
those aspects as well, similar to metadata within the compositor.

Cinelerra is a screwdriver. But the question here: is it the right bit. I 
have not yet found the ideal gui for this work.
