So which application is nearest to Windows Movie Maker? Also, which is the one with simplest user interface for newbies and can save in wmv format?

It is just too immature. There are just too many things that are broken when you install. I think when the community has time to smooth out the bugs Jahshaka will be one of the top video editing and post production programs in the OSS community. It may very well be the only true RTE video editing and post production program.

actually i'm still waiting to see or to know a "standard" gui app for these sorts of things in linux ... like imovie for macos running with little ram and lesser powered processors(by todays standards) ... or something like ulead(just the limited edition is more than enough) for win 95/98 on p1/p2(not to mention the detail spec) ...

let me know and forget about the those "quasi" gui cum commandline linux app , these are really weird for the tasks ...



//a bit urgent ... ^_^

Because video authoring on Linux sucks big time. I can't even capture videos from my cam via firewire. I tried everything...I beat myself up over it for days, spent hours upon hours Googling for solutions, read pages and pages of documentation, but I just couldn't get it to work. Installed Windows and everything worked beautifully right out of the box.

People keep trying to tell me that my fireware card or cable are defective, but that can't be true because they work perfectly in Windows.

None of the apps above compare to the likes of Adobe Premiere, Ulead VideoStudio, or even Windows Movie Maker. They're fun and simple to use and they make fantastic home videos with hardly any effort.

Don't get me wrong, I love Linux, I love Slackware, but when it comes to video authoring, Linux leaves me sorely, sorely disappointed.

Dang, I hate being forced to dual boot with Windows again

Tried MainActor ?

Try Cinelerra CVS. It is reliable enough to use on a daily basis. The only two problems are videos have to be converted to either a lossless MJPEG (include the lavcodec option hq while using mencoder) or DV in order to edit them and it is pig on resources while rendering or compiling the video which takes a long time than other non-linear editing. Cinelerra CVS works fine on my Pentium 4 2GHz (Northwood core) with a gigabyte of RAM (RAMBUS type).

These days, processor prices keeps on dropping, so there is no excuses of getting a better setup.

I will try Jahshaka and see if it can handle some simple editing with out fussing around converting to other video codecs.

BTW, there is Piave, a non-linear script effect and video render, and Kdenlive that works as a front end to Piave. Unfortunately, the two projects have stopped in 2004.

Kdenlive is under heavy development. Dan Dennedy who started the Kino project is focusing on Kdenlive's backend and thus might not be developing Kino past 1.0

I like Mainactor too =). I actually got the full version. The thing that I like the most is that the key you get also works on the windows version. Saved me the trouble of looking for a good video-editing program on that OS.

I'm running a dual-boot system because there doesn't seem to be a great application on Linux to create music that works for me (LMMS is cool, but not professional enough (yet)). On Windows I use Cubase. I guess I should get jack to work with my Tascam US-122 so I can try Ardour, but so far jack always refused working. On the other hand, we also keep one Windows installation for those moments school requires you to use Windows software that doesn't run on Linux. Although wine does a great job at emulating those apps, it doesn't always work. And another reason: my father, as a sysadmin, sometimes needs to check if something (a VPN connection, for example) runs on Microsoft's OS. I don't think our neighbours would like to be bothered with that time after time =). Nevertheless, we only boot to Windows about once a month, and even my mother uses Linux .

guess that you know my taste ... i have a look at their sreens shot ... seems as good as they sound , i will try it when i'm in ubuntu ...

btw ... not to disapoint you for not trying to learn anything ... any other even more simpler then that ... you know , simple recording and importing , those rows , the overlapping(with simple "effects") of clips between the rows , cutting , throwing them all over the place , squeezing , inflating and exporting to a few general sound formats ... nowadays a well "populated" app should be ok but without the unnecessary drag of gnome or kde stuffs would be the best ...


//i will try lmms first ...


.

[WAIT ::] >> "even my mother uses Linux ..."

my mother she was collecting records while everyone else were dancing some sort of agogo in high noon tea clubs ... ^_^
