[Solved] Best open-source video editing software, in your opinion?

There are a lot of options out there, it turns-out.

I'm looking for something with a pretty nice Title adding / manipulating features, and half decent filters (re: stuff that won't just make the end product look like crap). I'm not interesting in doing fancy stuff with lighting or slow motion, and do not care if it can't do super-mega-giga-definition video.

With Love and Courage

    VirtualDub is open source, right? Even if it isn't, I don't know why you'd use anything else.

    Wikipedia's got a comparison page for editors, including free ones.

    Thanks for the suggestion & the listing; I think I've found a winner in OpenShot.

    Thread solved.

    I know this thread says [solved], but I really feel the need to push Kdenlive. Having used them both back-to-back a decent amount, Kdenlive comes out on top in virtually every respect.

    Also, here is a pocast of a guy talking about the film production process and Linux: Podcast

    There is also the matter of VLMC, the editor being put out by the VLC folks (sort of): VLMC. I haven't used it much though, so I can't personally vouch for it.

    I'm going under the assumption that you're on linux, however. Outside of that, I couldn't say.

    Seeks on

    Again, solved but for Windows users, I was SHOCKED how good Windows Movie Maker was. I was able to edit together a good VBlog with nice transitions, music, credits, the whole 9.
