I wish I could tell you more through personal experience but I haven't
done any video editing since I made the move to linux. The following
list comes from the ACTEM listserv and is a good place to start
exploring. Good luck.
PiTiVi ( http://www.pitivi.org/wiki/Main_Page )
LiVES ( http://lives.sourceforge.net/ )
Kino ( http://www.kinodv.org/ ) - Kino is probably the easiest to use
and closest to pre-iMovie08.
Cinelerra ( http://cvs.cinelerra.org/ ) - More like Final Cut.
kdenlive ( http://kdenlive.sourceforge.net/ )
Jahshaka ( http://www.jahshaka.org/ ) - Getting better by the day.
Also, while I am in the mode of linking to things, here are a couple
of other FOSS applications for multimedia.
- Like iStopmotion.
ktoon (http://ktoon.toonka.com/) - Similar to Flash
Synfig (http://www.synfig.com/) - 2-D Animation
CinePaint ( http://www.cinepaint.org/ )
Krita ( http://www.koffice.org/krita/ )
GIMP ( http://www.gimp.org/ ) - Awesome. I can't get it to work in
Vector Graphic Editors
Inkscape ( http://www.inkscape.org/ )
Karbon14 ( http://www.koffice.org/karbon/ )
Xara Xtreme for Linux ( http://www.xaraxtreme.org/ )
Audacity ( http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ )
Ardour ( http://www.ardour.org ) PRO LEVEL APP
Jokosher ( http://www.jokosher.org/ ) - Similar to Garageband.
K-3D ( http://www.k-3d.org/ )
Wings 3D ( http://www.wings3d.com/ )
Art of Illusion ( http://www.artofillusion.org/ )
Blender ( http://www.blender.org/ )
If you are wanting more I highly suggest checking out the Linux distro
which focuses on Multimedia creation, Ubuntu Studio
(http://ubuntustudio.org/). Also, probably as the best looking Linux
desktop theme I have ever seen.
