Okay, thanks for the clarification.
I recall not that long ago that an end user insisted that, when ADM crashed, it needed to provide a comprehensive error dialog (presumably in plain english!). We were never able to convince this individual about the impracticality of building in that sort of self diagnostics for a multi platform program, let alone a program that is described by the Author as a "simple video editor".
Yeah, open source software really isn't for everybody. R's error messages can be downright cryptic as well, and I don't know how I'd get by without Google and StackOverflow. I get their frustration, but the target audience of these kinds of error message is the developer, not the end user. Without gobs of resources to throw at this, that's just the way it has to be.
