Re: Video Capturing/Editing/syncing in Ubuntu - best programs?
Hi, first of all, video editting is a qualified profession, and the sync problem you mention is not at all easy in the insides. Many otherwise "good" video editors may have problems with that when kidding around with different formats of audio&video, even with the "original" audio tracks. So please, be prepared to cope with a mess of formats, codecs, containers, etc, you won't understand
Well, what I used for some of your target tasks:
To take out the videos from your camcorder via firewire (IEEE-1394), Kino is probably the best, if not the one and only.
To add audio to the videos and sync them together, I've hheard good things about cinelerra. You might read this article first, to get an idea.
EDIT: perhaps I'm overcomplicating things (you said you have little experience, and cinelerra is quite advanced). Please try out OpenShot as a more basic and easier solution. It can manage audio clips and video clips, you can cut and move them around... you'll probably find it suitable.
To make dvd's with menus, etc, and burn to disk, I used dvdstyler with quite some fun.
Hope it helps
