8 of the Best Free Linux Video Editors

8 of the Best Free Linux Video Editors

Video editing is the process of editing motion video footage. In the new age of personal video, video editing is becoming a central function of the desktop, with the popularity of video editing software ever increasing.

Any self-respecting operating system that has ambitions on becoming the dominant force on the desktop therefore needs to have a good selection of video editing software. Video sharing websites such as YouTube and Google Video are now enormously popular with hundreds of thousands of new videos uploaded every day. Recording digital television to the PC is also increasing prevalent and many users want to edit these broadcasts, if only to remove the advertisements.

In the past, video editing in Linux significantly lagged behind other popular operating system. While there was a good range of software, the vast majority offered limited functionality. However, the situation has dramatically improved, in part because of development on multimedia frameworks (such as GStreamer and MLT). Furthermore, the versatility of Linux video editors has improved markedly. Linux now represents an excellent platform for editing video.

To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 8 excellent video editors. Hopefully, there will be something of interest for anyone interested in editing motion video footage..

Now, let's explore the 8 video editors at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, a screenshot of the software in action, together with links to relevant resources and reviews.
