Looking for a good video editor

Postby ClutchDisc » Fri Jun 13, 2014 10:08 am

Hi guys, first off not sure this is the best place to post this or not, but here goes..

I'm looking for a good fairly simple video editor. This is all I need it to do: Work with mp4 files (preferred), amplify, cut, and export to a file format that is youtube compatible. I've searched and searched, tried a few (Openshot, Kdenlive) but didn't find something that would work for my needs. It seemed that those wanted to only export to a project file type, not something like mp4. Maybe I didn't find the features that I needed on those programs, in which case I'd try them again if someone can point me to how to use it!

Do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

Unfortunately none of those work for me... The quest continues. :(

Cinelerra is the most professional :D

Have you used Cinelerra before? Do you know if you can cut and amplify? Thanks, it looks like it's interesting.

Keep in mind that Cinerella requires a more steeper learning curve that OpenShot or Piviti.
