Good news everyone!
Novacut 14.06 includes the Blender import script I wrote!  Take a look at the video to see how to use it and an example of an edit made possible when Novacut and Blender work together.

The Principal of Booker T Washington High School banned Little Brother from the summer reading program...in fact he canceled the entire program rather than allow it.  Yikes!
Little Brother is an excellent book.  In fact it's exactly the kind of book kids should be reading.  Certainly because it encourages the reader to think about surveillance and the high costs of "security" to our freedoms and way of life.  Even more than that, it's an empowering book. 
Unlike 1984, Little Brother shows us that we can make a difference.  That even though it is hard, even though sometimes our efforts fail and even backfire, we can still make a difference.
Little Brother is about creative hacks.  It's about being able to invent and remix the technological world we live in.  That's an amazing thing learning about the possibilities, seeing the world through the eyes of a hacker.
Little Brother was my introduction to Cory Doctorow, and I've no doubt it's been an inspiration to me for ZHackers.  The setting, the characters, and the challenges they face are different.  But the hacker ethic, the use of technological skill and creativity to fight for a better world, the simple lack of fatalism, those are things built into the DNA of both.
Maybe one day ZHackers will be banned for "lauding 'hacker culture'" and if that's the case, I'll wear it proudly like Cory Doctorow.
The principal of Booker T Washington High in Pensacola FL cancelled the school's One School/One Book summer reading program rather than letting all the kids go through with the previously approved assignment to read Little Brother, the bestselling young adult novel by Cory Doctorow. With Cory and Tor Books' help, the teachers are fighting back.

Yesterday I wrote a script for Blender that taps into Dmedia and Novacut and imports a complete Novacut edit into Blender's sequencer.  It's still fairly basic, no real-time collaboration magic or working back and forth between Blender and Novacut at this point, but if you want to rough cut in Novacut and then do audio editing, color grading, compositing, etc. without a lossy render in between, it's now possible!
And yes, this is footage from the FIRST Robotics Competition, which is totally awesome!

Currently it's a script in a blend file on my computer.  I'm cleaning it up to add a bit more functionality now.  Should have an initial release this week I'd say.

You know your story is getting exciting when the characters break out the soldering iron and datasheets!

I've not used Shotcut myself, but I'm happy to see them moving to a monthly release cycle.  It's really been a wonderful thing for Novacut.
