video edit apps
guys, i am gonna start making some digital movies but i know sh*t about good software for video edit. anyone knows good apps for linux or should i reboot to xp and search for win apps? hope not, of course! so, any suggestions? also, i never tried firewire on linux..donīt even know if it is working..
I don't know about Firewire but there is a video editor called Kino: http://www.kinodv.org/. Apparently Kino has fantastic Firewire support: http://software.newsforge.com/articl...31216&from=rss.
that table of comparisons is _so_ out of date/incomplete it doesnt even list blender3d under 3d editing/creation. the best way to find software is google
Re: video edit apps
Firewire works fine on the latest Linux (at least it works fine on SuSE-9.3).
Did you check out the multi-media sub-forum on linuxforums? For example, this thread:
In particular, I listed the apps below. Please try them, and let us know how they work:
kino [Kino is a non-linear DV editor for GNU/Linux. Features integration with IEEE 1394 for capture, VTR control, and recording back to the camera. It captures video to disk in AVI format in both type-1 DV and type-2 DV (separate audio stream) encodings]
Cinelerra [for capturing, compositing, and editing audio and video]
MainActor + other packages [capture, edit and export videos with a computer]
KDEnlive [Last update March-2004. A Non-linear editor]
i will try them when i start shooting. thank you guys!
I don't know if you're needing compositing, but this years Siggraph unveiled that Eyeon is releasing DigitalFusion for Linux.
I'm in need too, so i'll keep an eye on this thread.
also condider LiVES
Another app worth checking out is LiVES:
Its the only video editor (aside from avidemux) that will open the video files from my Canon S700 digital still camera.
