Edit Movies

Postby jhouse59 » Sun Sep 14, 2008 9:12 am

I've bought a VCR/DVD recorder. To record my home movies that are on VHS tapes. I want a software that will let me edit my home videos. So I can add music and pictures to my movies. Can anyone tell me of software that will let me edit movies? I'm looking for something like "Windows Movie Maker".

I'd use the dvd recorder to edit rather than the computer. No software needed, no crashes or lock ups.

Thanks. Kdenlive looks like a great program. I'm using Mint 5 (Elyssa). With the GNOME desktop. I've went to their web site. It says it's for KDE. Do you know if it will work with GNOME?

Thanks. What I meant for edit is. I wanted to be able to add pictures and music to my home movies.

Acid_1,

Thanks for the recommendation sir. This will come in handy for me too.

Most KDE apps work in Gnome, just it loads their libraries on top of Gnome, so it slows down your pc a bit, but I wouldn't be too concerned (only while you run that app)

No problem. First time I've helped you :D
