View Full Version : [ubuntu] Video Editing/Creating Clips

February 12th, 2010, 10:54 PM
Hello! I consider myself pretty novice with Ubuntu, but ever since switching away from Windows I could never bear to leave it. One of my hobbies is making anime music videos, but i'm having a lot of trouble finding decent software to do this. Here's what I need done.

1. I need to take several files (150+ mb each to 700+ mb) and split them into clips.
2. I need to be able to rearrange these clips and put audio to it as a whole.
3. This one isn't a necessity, but it would be nice to also have a program capable of adding some basic effects or just effects in general.

I've tried several of the programs in the Sound & Video section of the software centers... some of them just won't work, and others just seem to complicated for me to use (I used to use windows movie maker, not exactly a pro video editor.)

So does anyone know any good programs I can use to get this done? I would prefer to stay away from the terminal for this one, since I usually watch the video and decide which scenes to clip. Thanks!

Did you try the PiTiVi app (http://www.pitivi.org/)? It worked really well for me.

Or you should try the Ubuntu Studio distro (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntustudio).

This one is pretty simple to use...
It explains how to install and its kinda like the movie maker in windows.
Took me years to find.

Oh yeah, theres also the OpenShot Video Editor. I think they have it in the software center. If not, Google it...
