Ubuntu: I need the best film production video editor [duplicate]


This question already has an answer here:

I recently installed my ubuntu and am new to it. I have some projects with me related to video editing and since you can see, I have switched from windows to linux. I wanna know the best video editor for Ubuntu/Linux

thanks in advance for your suggestions.


I have two suggestions:

  • OpenShot: a light, easy, full-featured video editor for Linux. You can use it to make some simpler projects.

Pros: extremely easy to use, intuitive, user-friendly, stable.

Cons: lacks a few advanced options for professional edition, such as audio waves. Its keyframe system is pretty poor.

Installation: in a terminal, run sudo apt-get install openshot frei0r-plugins.

  • KDEnLive: an advanced video editor for Linux. It has an interface very similar to Openshot and is very good at professional video edition.

Pros: very modular (you can install plug-ins, edit your entire interface, etc.), stable, user-friendly, gets frequent updates (unlike Openshot), excellent for simple AND advanced tasks.

Cons: it's not as easy as Openshot, rendering times are long even with low settings (unlike Openshot), requires better hardware (crashes frequently if you have low RAM).

Installation: in a terminal, run sudo apt-get install kdenlive kde-runtime frei0r-plugins.

I personally use Kdenlive because it suits all my needs, but used Openshot for a long time. If you need video compositing, you can also take a look at Natron and Lightworks.


I've been using Kdenlive for a couple of years now and really like it! I only ever had one issue with it. And it's great because you can proxy the clips which help a lot while editing on an older machine.
