The current state of Linux video editing 2018.
@frd it is more towards the easy/simple than pro spectrum, but has some nice design for that, e.g. importing a clip into a fresh project sets the project resolution/fps to that clip. It does framerate conversion quite well, and most of the ui is well thought out. It needs a bit more stability, some more design for the color pipeline and a few more 'pro' features (mainly for workflow) but it could get there. I think mlt might be more mature than gstreamer/ges but I hope it will get there.
@bkurdali Interested in hearing your experience with DaVinci. Is it because of your footage/coloring, stability/pro-tools or both?
@frd It's mostly that I'm looking for a grading tool, and it comes with an editor. Long term I'll switch back to free software only though.
@frd I don't mind dipping my toes in the proprietary world once in a while, to get an idea of what's being done there.
@bkurdali It is called Open Cine.
@frd Thank you muchly. I have been planning on working with some video editing stuff on my system. It looks like most of what I probably want is already there. I'm missing support for one of the codecs, though I'm not sure if there is an advantage to having it (H.265 wasn't installed). I may do some playing around before too long.
@frd Nice overview.
