View Full Version : [ubuntu] Video editing software for Linux

May 18th, 2008, 11:31 PM
Hello all,

Prior to taking the road down to learning the Ubuntu operating system I began to learn to edit video using Window's Movie Maker. I was told that this program isn't that great. Since I have not been using it that long I really cannot be the judge, however, I did come across a few limitations already.

Since I am looking into audio programs that run on Linux...I thought, why not also find out what is a good video editing program.

Heck if there is a good audio/video program that is similar to Ableton's Live (6 or better). That will do fine for both my audio and video work.

Thank You,

I think the best at the moment is cinelerra. The problem with this however is that the interface is a bit user unfriendly. Currently a new project is working to resolve this and has forked from the cinelerra main code. This is called luminera i believe.

I like kdenlive for simplicity.

Haven't used it since Gutsy, and it had a bug or two, but the final product is good.

Thanx for the info guys,

I like the look of Kino and Kdenlive, so I probably will check out them two first.

I just wanna say that I had some problems with importing the files in Kino.
