3D animations are an exception, there even is good Linux FLOSS software
available for 3D animations, but even this FLOSS software is missing
some needed features, last time I checked it e.g. lip sync for
animations was missing. However, the most important thing is, that not
all videos are 3D animated videos and basic video editing requires
non-linear editing that is stable and follows common work-flows.
Non-linear video editing is absolutely not a Linux domain, even not on
special Linux boxes used by big companies or institutions of higher
education. People always confuse 3D animations, with film editing, IOW
cutting a film. Non-linear video editing, a major task when making
any kind of film, is not a Linux domain. Simple video editing done by
the so called averaged computer user, doesn't require much RAM.
Professional image manipulation doesn't require much RAM. Professional
audio and MIDI work doesn't require much RAM. Between >= 2 GiB and <= 8
GiB is fine.
