Video Editing

Postby shogun1234 » 2020-02-01 21:30

Came across to this thread viewtopic.php?f=20&t=59584 whilst searching on the internet about video editing. What's the current state of those open source software editors?

These are open source video editors I found so far https://itsfoss.com/best-video-editing-software-linux/. But my problem is I am not doing any video editing; one of my friend who is looking for a new laptop, so I lend him my laptop (tuexdo 13 inch with debian) to give a test on how it may look like. My friend has never used linux and mac, and no idea about os (e.g. command line), hardware, and so on. The editor he uses on ms platform is movie maker. So if there is a recommendation on a software that is friendly to new users and good enough docs (or videos illustration) would be cool.

Thanks

Hi Shogun,

I just do novice history videos,,as a hobby, Have tried about every conceivable video editing software out there. For the last 4 years have used Openshot. Works great, They have an Appimage so getting up and running is a no brainer.
Have a look.

Good Luck!

Originally I thought he will give up using it immediately. But my friend looks like interested about using Debian + open source video editing software. Your recommendation is invaluable info, thanks for the recommendation!

I like Flowblade, though I've only used it to make very simple edits. The version on Debian Stable is quite old, but you can run it from a user folder.
