PiTiVi

PiTiVi

PiTiVi is an open source video editor, written in Python and based on GStreamer and GTK+. It aims at being a powerful and flexible video editing solution for both the novice and the enthusiast.

PiTiVi allows users to easily edit audio/video projects based on the GStreamer framework. This is important as it allows almost any media file supported by GStreamer to be imported, as well as the rendering of projects using any supported container and codec combination from GStreamer.

This software application provides several ways of creating and modifying a timeline. Ranging from a simple synopsis view (a-la iMovie) to the full-blown editing view (aka Complex View) which puts you in complete control of your editing.
