Has anyone used The Gimp or Cinepaint.

Cinepaint is not a nonlinear editor, it's a version of GIMP with a DPX loader and certain other improvements. As such the actual edit functionality of the thing is pretty much identical to GIMP, which is a pale shadow of modern versions of Photoshop. The assertation that GIMP is the "Linux version of Photoshop" is a complete fallacy.

I wasn't sure about Cinepaint just caught a glimpse of the website where it mention studios like Imageworks uses this program. I thought it was a nonlinear editing version of the gimp.
So will it allow color correcting individual frame and transfer to another program like adobe creative suite or
even Pinnacle Studio 9

I like Blender as well. It's a free animation program that was created for game developers. It was the first anamation program I worked with and I had a lot of fun with it before I got Lightwave and Maya. I think there's also a limited free version of Maya out there somewhere unless they stopped it.
There was a couple of free compositing programs which were called I belive Axigon or something like that and Icurus, if I'm not mistaken, but I haven't seen those in a while.
I'm sure everyone knows about the free editing programs, A/B Roll and a couple of others. They're generally limited to one track of video and 2 of audio but they're better than nothing if your broke.

I have not worked with CS 2 but it seems 32 Bit support is much better now, so...
As Phil Rhodes said, you cannot compare Gimp to Photoshop (unfortunately).

I used the GIMP way back in the day, and I couldn't get used to the GUI.
I'm glad I read the thread before responding. I thought you were asking about the guy in the box from "Pulp Fiction".
