BTW, you shouldn't bump so fast. Wait at least 24 hours to bump a thread.

Dito.

Also, try google. I always start with google, and then use the forums if I'm not having much luck.

It might help if you explained the program's function.

It appears from this article there is Open Source/Linux versions listed:


Free / Open Source Software


Non-linear video editing software



Blender (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blender_%28software%29) (3D animation suite) (cross-platform)
Cinelerra (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinelerra) (Linux)
Jahshaka (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jahshaka) (Cross platform)
Kdenlive (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kdenlive) (Linux/FreeBSD)
Kino (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kino_%28software%29) (Linux)
LiVES (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LiVES) (Linux/BSD/IRIX/Mac OS X/Darwin)
OpenShot Video Editor (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=OpenShot_Video_Editor&action=edit&redlink=1) (Linux)
PiTiVi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PiTiVi) (Linux)


Video encoding and conversion tools



Thoggen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thoggen) (Linux)

Whether or not they are equivalent to Apple's Final Cut Pro remains to be determined.

I like Kino. Pretty simple to use. Although, once you create titles or transitions, you can't simply go back and edit them, you have to create and render new ones.

To make final cut pro, i needed to use a lot of programs to make something equivelent to that like Cinerella, Avidemux and Handbrake.

I have a friend who works at a PBS station. She said that her station, as well as many other larger PBS stations, are moving to Cinerella. I don't know if it's because of the economy or what. Her impressions were that it was "ugly as hell, but really powerful." In particular she said that "rendering" was much faster. It always seemed way more than I need, so I have stuck to Kino.

Thanks for the post; so your saying technically there is no "One" equivalent but more of a montage of solutions to measure up?

You could have a look at Ubuntu Studio. It's designed with those working heavily with multimedia in mind:

You could also have a look at Open Movie Editor:

http://www.openmovieeditor.org/

It's included in Ubuntu Studio, along with lots of other packages.


I hope this helps...

VERY buggy! Be careful with this one...Open Movie Editor screwed up my system royally. I could never get Kino and Kdenlive to work either. The only video editor (up to now) that works is Cinelerra, but it has a very long learning curve.

There is hope on the horizon however, a new program called OpenShot just has been created and it was made for Gnome. So I am looking into this one. Hopefully I will find something that is easy to use and works!!
