Lightworks, but it's not open source still. So, Kdenlive.

I use Blender for modeling and animation,
Pitivi for simple video editing,
and LiVES when Pitivi isn't enough.

... I guess I'll vote Blender, because it's the most complex in terms of what it does and it's constantly evolving with new features and stuff.


Also, I think Synfig might be worth adding to the next edition of the poll, since it seems to be the leading 2D animation suite for Linux.

I became familiar with Pitivi while writing my book, Energize Education through Open Source. I have found it to be versatile and capable.

I voted Avidemux but I use ffmpeg in terminal quite a lot particularly for conversions. I have a short script using ffmpeg to turn edited video files to mp4 to save space.

^ looking at it this way i guess i'd have to vote ffmpeg, too.
there's nothing like the command line for a simple task like cutting a video in half. bonus: i can see what it's doing "under the hood": re-encoding or just copying? big difference!
gui apps often hide too much "confusing info" from the "end user".

I'd argue that simple cuts to video, conversion, and compression are not "video authoring". But the term is loose, so I guess there's room for interpretation. Maybe a straight up category for "Non-Linear Video Editor" would be good, next year (not that even that term is very good, since video editing is inherently non-linear, but at least most of the world agrees what NLE means).

Or... we could have a single huge list of all FOSS software where you could vote for as many apps as you want. And then anyone could grep the list to create sub-lists however they want
