Free and Open Source Video Editors for Linux: I've shared with you a list of free and open source video editing software before, and noticed that there are other excellent video editors for Linux that I failed to mention. So today, I would like to feature some more video editing software, which are all capable of handling video sequence editing and provide tools for trimming, colour manipulation, titling, visual effects, splicing, cutting and arranging clips across the timeline among others. The best thing is that these editors are free and open source:

Now, here is another list of free and open source video editors for Linux.

Kdenlive (KDE Non-Linear Video Editor) is a powerful non-linear video editor that is both versatile and easy to use. It supports all of the formats supported by FFmpeg such as QuickTime, AVI, WMV, MPEG, and Flash, and it also supports 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios for PAL, NTSC and several HD standards, including HDV. The latest version of Kdenlive features interface based on KDE's Oxygen style, capture from FireWire cameras, webcams and Video4Linux devices, screen capture, support for jog shuttle devices, independent rendering processes, interactive timeline operations, high definition editing, lossless formats and clip organization / location tools. It utilizes various frameworks to provide a range of audio and video effects and transitions, including MLT, Frei0r effects, SoX and LADSPA.
