Kdenlive 0.8 Adds Advanced Features for NLV Editing 182

dmbkiwi writes "For a long time I've been a big fan of Kdenlive. I've written two articles about it. One is a general overview of video editing on Linux and the other is more specific to Kdenlive. For a number of years, video editing on Linux – at least at a consumer level — has been patchy at best. This is somewhat ironic given the heavy use of Linux in major Hollywood blockbuster film production. However, with the advent of Kdenlive, things are looking pretty good and with the release of version 0.8, there have been some great features added for the more advanced users, while still retaining a simple and easy to use UI."

    Before working to add new features, why not first make it so you can use it for 5 minutes without it segfaulting? How about making it so your savefiles aren't constantly becoming corrupt? Kdenlive shows great promise, but it's the least stable piece of software I've ever used.

    You can see why it's not "year of Linux on the desktop".

    "Yes maam, just load that kernel module dynamically using the following easy command, making sure you have root on your box...."

    Are you trolling, ignorant little Windows user? Installing Linux is far easier than installing Windows, and not once does one have to go to a shell prompt. The whole process is inside a GUI, and unlike Windows there's only a single reboot.

    I've been using Linux for almost ten years and I almost never see a shell prompt. Actually, I find myself at a DOS prompt at work using Windows far more than I need a shell prompt at home using Linux.

    There needs to be a moderation of "ignorant" as a counterbalance to "informative". Your stupid comment sure needs one, although I guess "troll" suffices. Now get back under that Redmond bridge, troll.
