[Cin] Debate on batch render

Today I have had some time to play with the batch render again, and I have
even discussed it with friends of the same profession, audio visual
technicians, and they see a nonsense this way of working from a batch
render window, just like me, especially because of the great danger it

With how easy it is to make a Save As, we make as many versions as we want
and then load them into the batch render, as is always done in any other

The other option, to warn if the session does not match, has made them
laugh ... normally a batch render is done with the application without any
project loaded. Or even this is launched from the terminal.

And in the conversation someone has said something with which I strongly
agree, "It is a real shame that some open source and free applications seem
to be focused only for people with high programming and computer skills"

I would like that Cinelerra could be used by anyone, such as Blender, Gimp,
Inkscape, Olive, kdenlive... etc... without jeopardizing their precious
work and not only for use by people with a lot of computer knowledge.

I remember days ago a reader of my blog returned to kdenlive because after
a sudden closure of Cinelerra he lost all his unsaved work... because he
made the mistake of pressing save backup instead of load backup... in
kdenlive when this happens and he opens the application again gives you a
warning if you want to recover your project, and it is not misleading.

Greetings and forgive my long exposition again.
