    Video editors are disappointing

    Ubuntu is great. Much of the software is great.

    But Pitivi and OpenShot are absolutely disappointing. Pitivi is useless and crashes often.

    What other video editing recommendations are there?

    You might try Lives - I know it's in the Hardy repo, don't know about the others.

    Definitely another vote for Kdenlive.

    Just an unrelated question, even if I'm on Windows and want to edit a video, I boot into Ubuntu to use Kdenlive, what video editor do you use in Windows? Because I don't know a free one as good as Kdenlive.

    Doesn't Windows already come with a video editor?

    Re: Video editors are disappointing

    I, too, have been disappointed by what I've seen when trying some of the offerings available for video editing with Ubuntu. The last time I checked, some progress had been made, but there's still a little way to go.

    It depends on which version of Windows you're talking about. MovieMaker with XP is fine for beginners. The version with Vista is slightly better: at least it can cope with mpg files, and can pass your efforts along to DVD burning software. I have absolutely no idea about what comes with Windows 7.

    I use a version of Pinnacle Studio that's a couple of years old for some stuff, and Sonic/Roxio MyDVD for other stuff.

    Windows 7 comes with Movie Maker too, but it's so oversimplified that I can't even use it. My computer also came with PowerDirector installed, it's nice, but I still prefer KdenLive.
