As promised, I've continued to research and test desktop video editors for Linux. This week we'll look at OpenShot, a GTK-based project.
OpenShot is a non-linear editor (NLE) for video. The "non-linear" qualifier simply means that you can play, edit, and mix video footage in any order or at any point you wish. In addition to this random access a modern digital NLE is typically non-destructive, thereby allowing free experimentation with edits and effects while leaving your original material in pristine condition.
