Jonathan Thomas of OpenShot:


Brought to you by: System76


OpenShot Video Editor is a free, open-source video editor for Linux licensed under the GPL version 3.0.

OpenShot can take your videos, photos, and music files and help you create the film you have always dreamed of. Easily add sub-titles, transitions, and effects, and then export your film to DVD, YouTube, Vimeo, Xbox 360, and many other common formats.

\”I use OpenShot as my main editor, the only parts that really get to me are when I need to add \” Titles\” and \”Credits\”. It just feels a bit overly complex. Are there plans to overhaul this in the UI while at the same time keeping the editing tracks as they are?\”

  • Linda Dean:

Will the updates include the ability to easily insert a photo into a title? I love the advanced editor, but it can be very complicated to the uninitiated.
