A full Linux video editing workflow is finally ready for production use. The certified solution is based on Kdenlive plus a set of components which allow easy integration with different sources of video (firewire capture, DVD extraction, H264 transcoding, screen capture, etc). The certification and packaging initiative, which was made possible by years of impressive work from several groups of open source developers, comes from Angulo Sólido, Caixa Mágica and the freelance journalist Caroline Pimenta.
The solution includes most features expected in professional video editing packages, such as: multi-track editing, support for a wide range of formats and codecs (mp3, mpeg2, mpeg4, DnxHD, Theora and others) and platforms (eg, Vimeo, Youtube), an important set of effects and transitions, support for screen captures, custom rendering profiles and subtitle support.
It can be installed on Linux Caixa Mágica simply by selecting the package “task-video-editing” on the Synaptic package manager. All the dependencies are handled automatically.
A workflow manual is available in English and Portuguese.
A simple demo video, which is a remake of the famous and fabulous Transpotting intro, was also released and can be found below.
The source RPMs, which may be useful for other distributions can be found here:
We would like to highlight the high quality work delivered by projects like xine, kaffeine, mplayer, vlc, ffmpeg, mlt and kdenlive which are the building blocks of this easy to use certified solution.
