"In Part 1, we worked through the process of setting up a video
shoot, shot clips, reviewed them using the Totem movie viewer, and
saved them on the hard disk. The job was carried out using Linux
tools on an Asus X83-VM notebook.
"Now that we have usable footage, it's time to do a little
editing and add elements that give the video a professional look.
In this article we'll discuss basic video editing using kdenlive,
transitions between scene elements, adding text and audio, ending
up with rendering the finished video and uploading to YouTube. My
intention is to introduce readers to the tools, while pointing out
important parts of the editing process. You can use your own
motivation and interest to push your video production beyond the
basics and on to higher levels.
"Make sure that you have kdenlive installed on your Linux
system. You can either use the Synaptic Package Manager or apt, on
the command line, to get it on your system."
