Re: VIDEO EDITING in Gnu/Linux
Blender is to a good Video Editor like the command line is to Gnome or KDE. All the power you could ever want if you ever actually have enough time to figure it all out.
KDEnlive seems to have the most potential, but I've never been able to do anything but crash it until I tried it on Kubuntu 9.04. Once I found a system it didn't crash on, it worked quite well. I didn't do a lot with audio, but sync seemed OK at least for the 5-10 minute clips I was playing with.
I suspect I'll dual boot into Windows 7 for video editing, nothing on Linux can match the ~$70 Sony Vegas Movie Studio software on Windows
I'm still using an older version on Windows 2000, but the latest on Windows 7 RC1 will likely have me setting up a Win7 box for it once I upgrade to HD camcorder.
KDEnlive on Kubuntu 9.04 handled the 720P MJPEG from my Casio point and shoot without issues, but its not a real camcorder. I've no HDV or AVCHD source to test at present.
