This statement makes it clear the developers might understand creators:
Taking into account the fact that not everybody has the same knowledge of
> video editing, nor the same needs, PiTIVi provides several ways of creating
> and modifying a timeline. Ranging from a simple synopsis view (a-la iMovie)
> to the full-blown editing view (aka Complex View) which puts you in complete
> control of your editing.
> Other interfaces can be added via the plugin system, aimed at more specific
> uses like a SlideShow creator or a subtitling editor. It is even possible to
> use pitivi without a user interface in order to do batch rendering.
It's built in Python and has a friendly dev list here:
