    Best Video Editing Software

    Hi guy, I'm not actually running Ubuntu Studio, but I thought this may be the best place to ask...

    What is the best open source Video Editing Software for Linux?

    I have used Sony Vegas Movie Studio and want to know if there is anything similar for Linux.

    you can try Avidemux or KdenLive
    Simply run in terminal :-
    sudo apt-get install avidemux
    sudo apt-get install kdenlive

    I had a look at these, they seem more similar to something like Windows Movie Maker, i.e. very simple

    Do they really fall into the, "best" category?

    check out OpenShot, Cinelerra,openmovieeditor for elementary movie editing, OpenShot being really easy to use. KdenLive for more complex movie projects and Avidemux for basic video editing
    Debian rulz but Ubuntu it's alright either

    I also recommend Openshot video editor. it's probably one of the best.

    OK after downloading KdenLive it actually seems to have alot of functionality and flexibility.

    While I am on the subject of Video editing does anyone know a good program for format conversions, primarily MKV to AVI?

    Avidemux will handle that. I get a warning message when using anything h264, but it doesn't seem to affect the conversion.

    For a dose of reality, none of these will come close to Sony Vegas Movie Studio in actual functionality.

    Openshot and KDEnlive are maybe half-way there, if you can overlook some crashes. Cinelerra or Blender Video sequence editor are supposed to be the "best" but good luck getting started with them.

    If yuo want ot play with video editing for free Linux is fine, but if you need to actually produce output videos my advice on the low end is to dual boot into Windows 7 and run Sony Vegas Video. If your time is worth anything at all you'll quickly recoup the cost of the the vegas software and Windows.

    Actually 0.7.8 is rather stable.

    I was able to do a couple of screencasts (still + videos + background music) very fast in Blender despite of very little knowledge of Blender, if any. I do agree that it's not the best solution though.
