Video Editing in Linux: Kino v Open Movie v KdenLive

Filed under
Software

I have yet to see a decent article on using video with Linux, so I thought I would write one. I’ve been working with video and posting my clips on YouTube using Windows Movie Maker 2. It is an adequate program, but I’d like to find something that could be as good or better in Linux. Could I pull it off? Follow along and see…

I used a Canon Powershot A630 and captured the video on an SD card. The video was only about a minute long, just to keep it as simple as possible.

Would PCLinuxOS be able to read the output? Would I be able to edit it with a title and maybe add some music? Would I be able to post my video on YouTube? Let’s see.

I was looking for some likely video editors and these were on my list:

Kino
Cinalerra
Open Movie
KDEnlive

Reglue at LibrePlanet

  • LibrePlanet & the Sounds of Silence
    My sponsor for attending LibrePlanet was John Sullivan, the executive director of the Free Software Foundation, and I was surprised that he took the time to get me shown around. I wanted to kiddingly say to John, “Hey, you got people to do this, right?” I didn’t because I was afraid the humor would not have translated well…and I’m not sure it did here either.

    On March 21st of this year, the Free Software Foundation presented our organization Reglue with the Award for Projects of Social Benefit.

Both of these 11.6-inch Chromebooks will retail for $149, making them the most affordable Chromebooks yet. Read more Also: Hands on: The $149 Hisense Chromebook succeeds at being incredibly affordable
