Anonymous Coward writes "MainConcept decided earlier this year to discontinue maintenance and distribution of MainActor Video Editing Software. MainActor was one of the most complete and affordable video editing software available for Linux and Windows. Some individuals already sent emails to MainConcept requesting them to free MainActor source code but without success. I hope that we, the whole Open Source Community, will have more success by puting all our efforts together. So, by signing this petition, we, Open Source enthusiasts and non-linear editors, ask that MainConcept release most source code (if not all) of MainActor as Open Source so that the community can continue to support and improve it. A topic has been opened in the unofficial MainActor forum to Free MainActor source code"
