    Default Video Effects For PiTiVi Video Editor Progresses

    Phoronix: Video Effects For PiTiVi Video Editor Progresses

    The open-source PiTiVi video editing application designed for GNOME and leverages the GStreamer framework had gained much publicity after it was included by default in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. PiTiVi though is still no comparison to Apple's iMovie or Microsoft's Windows Movie Maker, but it continues to mature and pick-up new features. The most recent example of this is PiTiVi finally beginning to properly support video effects within the non-linear video editor...

    It's funny you blog about this today as I had to google to find out that a video editor shipped by default on ubuntu does not support video effects, lol. I tried to click anything anywhere, read the help file, .. I couldn't believe it was not in there.

    I'm used to Kdenlive which is quite featureful but I was forced to try something else as with my current packages (opensuse 11.1) it somehow does not work anymore.. Guess I'll wait just a few hours for suse 11.3 and do a reinstall

    Yeah, it's pretty worthless at this point for any real editing. I guess that for the millions of youtube users out there who only trim and splice video, it was good enough for Ubuntu to include by default.

    Matti3, give OpenShot a try. It uses the same MTL framework as Kdenlive. It's got effects and transitions. They state that they want to go after the "easy to use" market, so it'll probably never be as in depth as Kden, but it does the job for me.

    Off-topic:
    What about Lightworks? Wasn't it featured here when its open-sourcing was announced? Wonder when they'll actually release the code.

    On-topic:
    It's nice to actually get some effects in this video editor (it runs without having to install more libs, ie. Qt) even though kdenlive (and bunch of others) already have these functions.
