Video Editing

Kino is an advanced video editor. It features excellent integration with IEEE-1394 for capture, VTR control, and recording back to the camera. It captures video to disk in Raw DV and AVI format, in both type-1 DV and type-2 DV (separate audio stream) encodings. For more information, see the Kino website. To use it:

  1. Install the kino package (see Chapter 3, Adding, Removing and Updating Applications).

  2. To run Kino, choose Applications->Sound & Video->Kino Video Editor.

You can also try the PiTiVi video editor by installing the pitivi package from the “Universe” repository (see Chapter 3, Adding, Removing and Updating Applications). PiTiVi is a video editor for the GNOME desktop. It is still in fairly early development, but worth a try.
