    Re: I need a good video editor with awesome effects and keyboard shortcuts.

    Lightworks, Kdenlive, OpenShot, Lives, Flowblade and Pitivi are all i know & generally used as video editors.

    Re: I need a good video editor with awesome effects and keyboard shortcuts.

    They're all for pretty much basic editing.
    They all lack of features, functionality and effects.
    Maybe I should just go back to Windows.
    I'm really trying to use linux here. But with all its limitations, it's just very frustrating.
    Some guy said that there are some good non-free video editors for linux.
    Was that guy just full of crap? Where are all the $200 video editors you were bragging about?
    Because I can't seem to find any.
    And when all the video editors you guys suggest are either very basic 1995 stuff or just junk, then that only proves my point.
    How can I take this seriously?
    And btw, suggesting dual boot is like saying "Windows is better". So I don't think that's fair.
    Because windows ain't better. The only thing that makes windows better is the selection of software.
    The operating system itself is garbage (in my opinion).
    I wish the linux foundation could spend some of their money on bringing sony vegas or an alternative to linux.
    Why is this so complicated? Why are we still in 1995 when it comes to these things?
    It's frustrating when you try to stick to an operating system that stands for freedom.
    Because freedom should be a two way street. If you want to use proprietary software you should be able to. At least if there aren't any open source alternatives out there.

    What did you find "limiting" about Cinelerra, Blender or Lightworks?

    Just curious.

    EDIT: See screenshot below. Cinelarra offers quite a bit in video effects

    People have made amazing creations using the open source software available for video editing. It's not Linux's fault. It's not Ubuntu's fault. Nor is it the fault of the people who have developed the software. If you want to get upset at someone, get upset at the large companies that haven't taken the time to port their stuff over to Linux. Lightworks, I'm glad they have, a lot of big name studios use Lightworks (and on Linux too) to complete their videos for production.

    We offered the suggestions we could, and even though they're not to your standards of what you're use to, there is a creative side. You can do as you wish with these pieces of software. You can create your own custom effects, or see if someone has created them and you can add them to your program.

    Cinelerra has a lot of rendering effects, I installed it (I've used it before for very basic things, so not very heavily). You may need to look for support for the program you'd like to use and say hey, is there an effect like xyz for this program? - We're doing the best we can. Linux is open source and it's created some of the best stuff in the world - Web Servers, Android phones, Open Source devices and implementations in Video Game consoles (look at Open Source Software used in the Playstation consoles, same with the XBox).

    I know you're upset, but it does offend me when a community working hard on making the system usable for everyone and helping one another out gets put down for not having the "big name companies" standing behind it with it's proprietary software. Linux didn't get funding from a corporation, it is its own entity in the computing world.

    Well. On page one I explained pretty much why I need a good video editor and gave video examples.
    I need it for making YouTube Poops. In other words fast editing, copy/paste millisecond clips, use multiple video sources above each other with blue screen and chromakey effects so that I can remove/replace the background if the foreground is moving and the other way around.
    And of course the ability to max up the volume for a nice ear-rape
    Also, rewind, live rotation, pitch and tempo up and down, echo effects and voice changing effects.
    And I also need color effects, trace effects and probably more that I can't remember at the top of my head.
    And obviously as much as possible on keyboard shortcuts for easy and quick navigation.

    kdenlive and Blender can do those things to the best of my knowledge...and you can map your own keyboard shortcuts.

    Thanks but kdenlive is way too buggy. And trust me. I've tried. Once you copy and paste more than 10 mini clips after each other, the program just crash.
    And no there aren't any live movement effects such as zoom from out during the clip or live rotation from one point to another. In other words, I have to do a lot of frame-by-frame work. That takes forever.
    And the way it's been set up, you still have to go through 100 menus in order to do one simple thing.
    It's a hassle.
    They do have the effects though. But the gui makes it totally useless.
    And I have tried to split audio and video tracks in kdenlive, but I haven't been able to.
    Is it so hard for them to set it up like this for instance?

    and this: http://www.toptenreviews.com/i/rev/s...deo-pro-x2.jpg

    Those types of guis make sense. A list of effect names you have to go through does not and it takes forever. Especially being that kdenlive is buggy as hell.
    Blender is also clumsy with menus and frustration.
    See what I'm saying? We need a good video editor in Linux. Kdenlive is close as far as effects and all the fun stuff you can do. But I can't deal with stability issuesand the gui is terrible.
    The effects should have buttons, switches and so on.
    The reason I gave you pictures from Magix Video Edit is because that's what I used in Windows.

    Ok so, what non-free video editors are there?
    I am still waiting for that list of $200 video editors some guy were bragging about?
    It has to be solid stable.
