Open source video editing: what we have now and what we need

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 68.100.63.216] on April 14, 2008 03:17 AM
I think what most users are looking for is a robust, stable app that is close to what Windows Movie Maker or Apple's iMovie does. Most users just want to import their JPEGS, video clips, some music or audio, drag in transitions, put some text on frames and render a movie they can burn into a DVD appropriate format.

KDENlive comes the closest to this - but still needs some tightening. PiTiVi looks great but crashes constantly. The linux community has reached parity with iTunes - why can't we do it with a linux version of iMovie or WMM?
