View Full Version : [xubuntu] Open Movie Editor: drag, drop, and close

July 7th, 2008, 02:07 PM
Good Hello:

As part of my ongoing efforts to "master the penguin," and because I want to get really good at editing digital video in Linux, I want to try using Open Movie Editor.

One problem, though: When you try to "drag and drop" (http://propirate.net/repos/openme-developers/doc/tutorial.html) a clip into the timeline, OME suddenly closes. Again and again.

So weird... any thoughts?

Yes, I have Kino installed (and have a separate issue when it comes to getting the system to talk to my DV camcorder), but I don't want to limit myself to Kino if I don't need to.

...until the next stable build of OME, I'll give Kdenlive a spin. It seems to have similar features, and the interface will make this iMovie-spoiled penguista feel at home.
