Kdenlive Open Source Video Editor
The next step up is Kdenlive, a professional-level video editor, comes close to OpenShot's ease-of-use of, but with many more capabilities. It supports tethered shooting from any Firewire-connected video camera, which is a great way to keep your old DV or HDV camera (DV and HDV record to tape) in service.
Of course, you can also use lower-end camcorders that rely on compact Flash storage; simply connect the camera to a computer via USB to copy the files over, and then edit. You can also record your computer desktop and make screencasts, which is a great way to make training videos for new software, and you can capture from any video media connected to your computer, such as a DVD or video player.
Kdenlive includes a clip monitor, record monitor, and project monitor, which let you preview everything you're doing in real time. Just like OpenShot, you can mix pretty much any video or audio media, and Kdenlive provides tools for organizing your projects and syncing audio and video tracks.
You can export video files to whatever format and quality level you want, such as TV, DVD, mobile devices, Web, Blu-Ray and high-definition. The second-to-last step any video editor takes is to render your project into its final form, which takes a few minutes, and Kdenlive allows you to continue working while it's rendering.
Kdenlive has a raft of other useful features such as notes, creative effects, scripting support, and creating custom profiles. The Kdenlive community has created a big batch of shared profiles, and you can preview and download these with a couple of clicks. You can also download project profiles and cool title templates.
