"First, the bare-metal description. Kdenlive (Figure 1) is a non-linear video editor for Linux, FreeBSD, and OSX. It supports realtime input from camcorders (DV, HDV, professional, etc), cameras capable of MPEG4 and H264 output, and standard USB-compliant webcams (some of them, that is). File I/O is supported for a variety of video and audio codes and formats, including AVI, MPEG, FLV, raw DV, WAV, and many others. Kdenlive's editing features include a track-based A/V mixer, effects and transitions processing, keyboard accelerators, and non-blocking rendering. Of course all common editing operations are also supported, e.g. cut/copy/paste, splicing, track solo/mute, and so forth.

"Kdenlive is software libre licensed under the GPL. It leverages the power of other free software projects such as Qt4, MLT, and FFmpeg, and it requires the base libraries for KDE, though you do not need to run the KDE desktop. Pre-compiled packages are available for various Linux distributions, and all source code is freely available."
