There are quite a few but the well known ones are

  • Pitivi: Gstreamer based. Available in the standard Fedora repositories and you can get additional codes from RPM Fusion. Quite simple and easy to get started.

  • Openshot: Actively developed and feature rich

  • Handbrake: A transcoder rather than a editor but there is overlap and I thought I will mention it anyway.

To use Handbrake on F18 one must compile the package for himself. The easiest way to install would be to make an rpm and install it with "yum localinstall". Refer to Handbrake is not compiling on F19 because of problems with gcc (4.8) and compiling with clang won't work.

A buddy and I make a danish Linux vidcast, and we have been through all of the programs. The two you want to spend time in/on is OpenShot and Kdenlive. Save yourself the time and trouble, and limit your search to those.

Another good up and coming video editor is Novacut.

I use Avidemux for actual editing and ffmpeg for transcoding. Of course there's also kdenlive for more professional stuff.

My preference is for kdenlive but, if I'm honest, I still drop into windows for video editing more often than not. I am pinning my hopes on Lightworks which promises a linux beta version in December.

If I could do video work easily and with high quality on Fedora too the windows installs would go permanently.

I think that the most complete is Cinelerra, but I've also used kdenlive and it's really good.

If it is okay, I like to list my own app here. It is called "GrooveVideo - created by funflow". It automates almost everything. Once you select source media such as your videos and photos, it will automatically cuts frames as it is suited to the music.

Beauty of this app is how it places cut video frames onto right beats within music. Previously all other video edit apps, you can only select the starting point of your music manually. GrooveVideo app eventually do it for you everything.

Simple manul edit function will let you adjust outcomes as well. It is totally free for now. I hope that you would try. Here is website
