OpenSource Tools for Video Editing
Video editing has become a daily activity for those who do it professionally and for those who just consider it a hobby. How many of us haven’t wanted to improve a video lightning or simply cut it and merge it again? There are many things we can do when we talk about video edit. The good thing about working with OpenSource is that variety will always be there. Here are some of the most used apps for video editing:

Kdenlive: Means KDE Non-Linear Video Editor, is a non-linear editor quite comfortable, and probably the first choice for many people. Despite its simplicity, it allows you a complete manipulation of your video without lag or crash. This is the one I always use for my podcast (at least ’till another app gets the spot)
OpenShot: One of the things I like about this app are its effects. These are shown on a easy graphical window, so add effect is as easy as drag and drop. If you’re looking for an app with instagram-styled effects, this should be your choice.
Pitivi: This is an app that might bring awesome things. PiTiVi allows you to render, import and export videos with basic editing properties,however, they ave hired a student from GSoC to add effects. Lets hope everything works for them and we have an awesome app soon.
Avidemux: This app is the equivalent to Raw editing for videos. Is probably the only app that literally runs over anything.It allows basic edition and filters. However, even if it’s quite powerful, its GUI is one of the lest attractive from the list.
There are many other apps, such as Lives, Cinelerra, Lombard, LightWorks, Kino and even Blender; what matters is to know that there is a huge variety and be able to choose. So far, my fav still remains Kdenlive. This app has prove to be useful and stable with the time. Wat do you think? Which is your favorite? am I missing one?
