    Maybe I'm someone special here but the goal "stability" remains very far! It would be great that developers focus on this goal because there is a real problem with that, as soon as you do more than just assembling a few clips in a 5-minute video. (OpenShot is not the only one in this situation).

    Openshotvideo works fine.

    I have so far used this only briefly, but in that time I was able to replicate the results of using a commercial windows video editor fairly easily. The interface is deceptively simple, but like DVDStyler, more complexity lies in the PROPERTIES dialogs of individual clips, images, effects and transitions. For example the context menu for an image only gives you a set number of opens in sizing, placement and fades, but in teh Properties tabs you can set the length of starting and ending fades for both video and audio, and also set starting and ending sizes, positions and opacities, meaning that you can animate an image or video to move across the screen. This is a good application. I wish there was also a Windows version and for a manual with more examples.

    Looks very promising for anyone looking for an editor that is easier to use than Cinelerra but still provides some advanced features.

    The only video editing application for linux that both understands what should be in a entry to mid level video editor and delivers updates quickly
