Anyone know of a good video encoder with GUI


I love my SUSE Linux Distro. I pretty much can do everything I would normally do on Windoze, except encoding video in the way I am used to in Windoze.

You see in windows, I used programs such as AVIsynth, Virtual Dub, and TMPGEnc. I know that I could try Wine to run the windoze version, but I really would like to know if there are comparable native linux encoders with the power and flexability as these programs, with a simple yet intuitive GUI.

Note: AVISynth is script based video editor. However it's scripts are easy to write and are used to frame serve your enhanced videos to Virtual Dub, TMPGEnc, or even PSPVideo9.

What i would like is one that can do AVC and Xvid, which i use the most often.

it has to have a GUI. I used very powerfull, highly optimized video encoders on Windoze, that had very easy to use GUI (Virtual Dub and TMPGENc), without loosing functionality.

I don't see why there could not be such apps for Linux.

Thanks.

Avidemux seems to be pretty straight foward to use. Pretty good GUI.
I am gona play around with it, to see how powerfull it is. But my first impressions tell me it will be usefull for only quick and dirty encodes, not quite as flexable as the apps I am used to, but hey it's a start.

I was a sad former VirtualDub and VirtualDubMod user myself before I found Avidemux. It is pretty powerful. You may want to compile it yourself to get the options you need. I usually start my video work downloading and compiling latest x264:
Code:
svn co svn://svn.videolan.org/x264/trunk x264
Then I sync with Avidemux and compile it too:
Code:
svn co svn://svn.berlios.de/avidemux/branches/avidemux_2.3_branch/
It all takes surprisingly little time using some primitive scripts and after that I do my work.
