"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.

My intention is to introduce readers to the tools, while pointing out important parts of the editing process.
