@fernandomaroto said in Premiere Pro-like video editor suggestions:
@WaltH HI, i had to use one video editor for a very simple thing, i tried
openshot and i couldn’t use them (wasn’t willing to spend time on them), i concluded that both require a learning curve to use them, so it seems they are very complete and professional.
Then i tested kdenlive which allowed me to do what i wanted (merge more than 100 classes videos into 1), which seemed easier to manage, but also appear to be a powerful tool.
The others i didn’t test but i installed Avidemux here to test something else when i have time.
I’d be interested in discover a video editor that could edit audio files like audacity but without the need of extracting them from the video.
Sorry for the long post.
I tried pitivi a while back and didn’t care for it that much. I know some (most?) video editors do allow you to separate the audio track from the video track, which would allow you to add in alternate audio or trim audio, but I don’t how much processing of audio any of them allow. That would be a nice feature, though, even if it weren’t as extensive as what can be done in Audacity.
@earthmind - Given that my son’s interest in video editing (expressed verbally but not really demonstrated) is at times fleeting, I think Lightworks Pro, while a very cool looking program, is a bit out of reach at $440 (U.S.), and the free version is too limited in terms of video formats supported for export. It also appears to be packaged in .deb and .rpm formats only, which adds in the possibility of something going wrong when trying to convert and install it on an Antergos system.
While I intend to look at some videos on using Blender to edit video (especially since my son from time to time also says he is interested in animation), I think I’ve narrowed things down to a choice between OpenShot and Shotcut, though I may also take a look at LiVES and maybe another look at Cinelerra, although neither of those is available in a version for my son’s and my wife’s Windows machines.
The more I explore, the harder it gets.
