Making Movies in Linux with Kdenlive

"I've been avoiding video editing for years. I've seen a couple of tutorials that always made it look too complicated.

"But recently, at a model airplane fun fly, I shot a lot of short video clips with my digital camera. I needed a way to combine the good parts into a video I could put on the web. I tried a few of the video editing apps available for Linux looking for something that was easy for a first-timer to use, and settled on kdenlive. I was amazed how easy it was to use, even for a first-timer. Turns out there was no need to be afraid of video editing! Use the latest version

"The most important part of getting started with kdenlive is: Use the latest version, 0.7.7.1 or later.

"I started out with 0.7.5 since that's what comes in Ubuntu Karmic. 0.7.5 has a bug that will eventually corrupt your video project. It's possible to recover from that (by editing an XML file) but it's not easy. Don't risk it -- use 0.7.7.1 from the beginning."
