View Full Version : [ubuntu] Starting From Scratch

April 6th, 2012, 01:04 AM
I have never shot video or done any editing, but I want to try to produce a webseries. And I want to do it using Ubuntu.

* What is a good Low to Mid Price-Range Camera?
* Is there a specific type of video format I should use (or avoid)?
* What is the easiest editing software for Ubuntu?
* Has anyone done this before?

* Right now I am running Lucid 10.04, but I plan to upgrade to 12.04.

I have miniDV camera, and for the miniDV workflow I use Kdenlive for editing, and Kino for grabing video from camera via firewire. Grabbing can be also done with Kdenlive, but never tried - habit can't fade that easyly. ;)

I guess you can't buy these days miniDV camera, but only HD cameras. Kdenlive should also support that, but I never tried.
