video editing


I'm going to make a first trailer of the game I'm developing, any suggestion about apps for video editing on Linux?

I don't need anything too complex, mostly cut scenes and add text to the video.

    I haven't done any video editing, but I hear good things about OpenShot and Cinerella.

    what distro are you using ?
    most have one or two of the basic video editors in there packages
    search your package manager for " video"
    cinella nice BUT a pain to learn and is not a "basic" easy to use program

    avidemux should be in your repos

    At the moment my main distro is Kubuntu 10.04, so I'm going for Kdenlive, it seems pretty simple and fulfill all my needs!

    Thanks everybody :)

    Just in case you're curious, I published the trailer today on the game website (any feedback/comment is welcome).

    I made it using RecordMyDesktop and Kdenlive, two software far from perfection, but pretty usable.
    I'm probably going to write a blog post about the "making of", so if anybody is interested, I'll publish more details next week.
