[SOLVED] Best video editor and transcoder

Postby MarkLaw19 » Mon Jul 16, 2012 10:36 pm

Hello to all,

I just want to ask is there any linux software that you can consider it to be the best video editor and transcoder? I was just thinking about creating a movie and i want to use Linux Mint to do it, but with my lack of knowledge in linux so i could not determine one. In windows my favourite video editor was Pinnacle Studio. So is there an alternative for that in Linux? And if possible, its free?

Any response would be appreciated...

I would recommend Avidemux as the best. I have had good results with Openshot, also. Some things were easier to do in Openshot.
