New Linux tools or Mac OS X for video editing?

Filed under

Software

Video editing on Linux has, for the expanse of recorded history, sucked eggs. This isn’t a terribly big secret.

Sure, we’ve had a variety of high-end, commercial-grade tools available that we all like to point at - such as Cinelerra (which I still can’t get to run properly) - in order to try to convince ourselves (and others) that the video editing situation on Linux is far less dire than it really has been.

Heck, the major Linux-centric podcasts tend to be recorded and edited on Macs. Even "The Linux Action Show" is recorded, edited and produced entirely on MacOS X. For a time we (meaning myself and my old co-host on that show) tried to simply not talk about that fact. But, eventually, we threw our hands up in the air and declared unto the Internets, "You know what? Linux video editing sucks. Deal with it."

EXT4 In Linux 4.1 Adds File-System Level Encryption

The EXT4 file-system updates for the Linux 4.1 kernel have been sent in and it features the file-system-level encryption support. Earlier this month we wrote about the newly-published patches for EXT4 encryption support coming out of Google and intended to land in the next major release of Android. Those patches for file-system-level encryption will now be landing upstream with the Linux 4.1 kernel update. Besides this native encryption support for EXT4, the rest of the updates for this merge window pull request equate to mainly fixes. More details via the pull request itself. Read more
