Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

The Kino doesn't work with AVI (the actual version in Ubuntu). It said that it works, in open file the .avi extension is present but it doesn't work, it supports DV but I don't have these kind of files. I tried cinelerra but it crashed when I tried to render the entire project. I didn't find cinelerra in the ubuntu's repositories. These programs are free.
MainActor is not free.

AVI is a container, not a format, as far as I know. So the *.avi extension doesn't mean anything if you got the wrong file format inside the file. Kino works for me, BTW.

My digital Sony video camera stores stuff in DV format. So when I connect it to my PC via a Firewire cable I can download the recorded material off my camera directly into Kino.

BTW, there is a fork of cinelerra ... but for some confusing reason they both use the same name.

I am considering to buy it. It seems it's worth the money. BTW, did you try Jashahka? http://www.jahshaka.org/

Here is a web page that lists tons of Linux software related to video editing in some way. http://linuxmovies.org/software.html

regarding .avi, I have a lot of files but the kino doesn't want to open. I select a file.avi but it said that it can't open file.avi.dv

regarding Jashahka, I installed it but it also crash during utilization.

Read above. It doesn't help kino if the files are in the wrong format. You could still convert them though. Besides newer versions of kino are less problematic.
