Video Editing software

Postby MourningStar » Wed Jan 13, 2016 3:58 pm

Hey Pirates, Wenches, and Landlubbers...

I'm in need of some bad-ass FREE video editing software. I have a school project due in 3 weeks that is going to require me to edit bits of video together as well as add sound on top of existing video, or self shot video. So I was wondering if anyone out there/here has used or has any preference using online/downloaded free video editing software. Must be able to save compile and save the video into standard formats. :lurk:
Thank you.

Avidemux is good. I used a couple of years back, not bad at all.

Lightworks is full-on broadcast / cinema quality, it is open source freeware, but it takes a good while to set up a machine to use it, and then to learn to use it properly.

Windows Movie Maker is piss-easy to use, but not too heavy on the features and flexibility.

I've heard good things about Kino.

Looking through the software manager on Debian, I also see Flowblade, Lives, Mjpegtools, and Openshot.

I don't know if these are cross-platform or not, I've never looked at them.

If you already have an editor you're used to using that uses a codec different from what your school requires, it's worth checking out Handbrake and Transcode (Handbrake is cross-platform, not sure about Transcode). If either of them recognizes the codec your software is using, there you go :cool:
