I've look at cinelerra, but couldn't figure if it could do what I need 
to do: non-linear editing using scripts only.

The thing is, that I have a bunch of DV captures (AVIs) and need to 
assemble them with wipes between and some bluescreening in the 
background. But the assembly process is supposed to run completely 
unattended (i.e automatic) and be fully controlled by a script that is 
created on the fly.

So if someone knows if it is possible or how to "remote-control" 
cinelerra with simple text file - that's what I'd need. It seems to me 
that it should be possible as there is this multi-server option for 
rendering-acceleration build in.
