Daily dose of open source
There are a whole lot of commercial and expensive Video editors in the market. Still there are several Open Source counterparts that are equally good in features and perfromance to the commercial ones. So here is a round up of the best Open Source Video Editing Software.
Cinelerra is a highly advanced and professional video editing, but still remains open source. Cinelerra solves three main tasks: capturing, editing and compositing. There is virtually no limit to the video resolution so whether its standard or high definition (hd) doesnt really matter in Cinelerra. And when it comes to exporting it supports H.264, which most likely is going to be the predominant format for hd video.
VirtualDub is a video capture/processing utility for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows platforms, licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). It lacks the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is streamlined for fast linear operations over video. It has batch-processing capabilities for processing large numbers of files and can be extended with third-party video filters. VirtualDub is mainly geared toward processing AVI files, although it can read (not write)
Kino is open source non-linear video editing at its best. Easily imports DV video through IEEE-1394 (firewire) and allow detailed editing and transition effect for both video and audio. The move editing features include fast and frame-accurate navigation for precise trimming – also clips can be drag n dropped from the file manager. Video effects and filters are also available.
