Preferences in Video Editing Software?
Does anyone monitoring this forum have any preferences in video editting software that they care to expound upon? I want to edit two types of files:
a. music videos, and
b. movie videos from my Canon digital (still camera) [not to be confused with a digital camcorder].
Packages that I am curious about are listed below. Please, any reviews, comments, comparisons, or recommendations?
kino - http://kino.schirmacher.de/ and http://www.kinodv.org/
[I believe kino is limited in the input forumat's it accepts. For example, it won't accept the .avi movie files from my Canon digital (still) camera].
Cinelerra - http://heroinewarrior.com/cinelerra.php3/
[This program looks massive - does one need a cray or a cluster to handle the processing load ?? ]
MainActor - http://www.mainconcept.com/index_flash.shtml
[commericial - but a free version comes with SuSE].
avidemux - http://fixounet.free.fr/avidemux/
[a great video editor, but not designed to support fade/in/out transitions between clips].
LiVES - http://www.xs4all.nl/~salsaman/lives/
[I've read it has some difficulty in sound and video synchronisation. But perhaps no worse than the other packages ?? ].
http://openvip.sourceforge.net/ and http://sourceforge.net/projects/openvip
Jahshaka - http://www.jahshaka.org/
[possibly more for special effects ?? ].
LVE - http://lvempeg.sourceforge.net/
modesto - http://sourceforge.net/projects/modesto/
KDEnlive - http://kdenlive.sourceforge.net/
piave - http://modesto.sourceforge.net/piave/
[ is a render and effect engine for GNU/Linux. PIAVE has no GUI. It is used by KDEnlive and modesto]
PiTiVi - PiTiVi is a non-linear audio/video editor for GNU/Linux using the GStreamer multimedia framework. http://www.pitivi.org/ and http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...roup_id=100591
Zwei Stein - a nonlinear video editor
[Edit - 4-Oct-05 - added PiTiVi]

I don't plan to maintain this thread
I did a couple edits to my original post, adding a couple of more packages that I discovered (but did not install). However I don't plan to maintain this thread any more. The lack of response clearly indicates linuxforums.org is not the forum to discuss video editing software.

A couple more URLs with links to Non Linear Editors.

Does anyone have experience with any of these packages that they care to share?
multi-media forum on gentoo
Thanks. I've never felt the need to create a digital photo Album, but thanks for the URL. I may try it some time.

However I have found there are several interesting historical threads on the gentoo multimedia forum that are generic across all linux variants:
There are so many posts in the gentoo multimedia forum, I find that I need to do an advance search confined to the gentoo multimedia forum, in order to find specific posts of interest. But there are some gems there.
