    I noticed that my linux version of GFX doesn't recognize MP3 files in the background clip section.is it supposed to? i dont see it in the pulldown menu either. thanks
     
  2. It is; however, the patent for mp3 is expired, so it is now completely legal in any part of the world to use it for free in any software. Anyway, didn't even know about that, because I use only FLAC, WAV, and Ogg Vorbis. I don't know, however, why would one use mp3 for any music application, even if it doesn't involve any recording.
