I was referring to a "first steps" guide in English, you call it "Quick
Start". Today the time that I allot every day to write Cinelerra tutorials
I am going to dedicate to making an example of what I mean. The manual is
very good, but there are people who when they see so much text get scared.

I do not know if you saw the error that I reported about the first time it
is used and it is intended to export in mp4. Perhaps the solution would be
as simple as choosing FFMPEG that the extension box is empty, to force the
user to put the desired extension there.

I am going to make this example pdf and send it to you in an email, along
with the .odt file.

Also the es.po file in which I had to make an exception in using lowercase
of a term, because people are used to seeing the shortcuts in uppercase and
a user has notified me that accessing the tags was not working and that it
was opening a clips window... and this is because he confused the ( l )
(lowercase letter L) with the ( I ) (uppercase i).
