I’m slowly making my way through all the video editing software in Linux. I’ve tried Cinnerella, Lives, Kdenlive, Openshot and a few others but for one reason or another they’re all lacking. Mainly bugs unfortunately.

Of the ones I tried I like Kdenlive and Openshot and was able to do some decent multi-track editing of a video. Kdenlive crashed quite a few times and I think I failed to create a video. Openshot did really well but then I triggered an odd bug where some clips in the video simply froze. The audio continued but the image displayed was the first frame. I went searching for it and found a discussion of the very problem. Seems to be slightly glitchy 1080×720 video will cause it.
