Looking for a good and simple video edit software


Well, what the title says really.

Ive just got a digital camcorder and want to have something to chop and change the video with, add music over the top etc. That's pretty much all!

This has only come around after seeing the one that comes built in on vista when on my dads PC. Its simplistic and can just drag and drop the avi's or mp3's onto a timeline and bish bash bosh job done.

Is there anything similar for us? I really dont need anything complicated, but couldnt see anything that stood out on the ubuntu repository.

(the only other thing i need to work out is how to get around the sony MS pro problem, but thats a whole different story!)

I've used Kino and Cinellera before, and Kino is a bit easier to use. Don't know if they're in the Ubuntu repos, though, since I'm on OpenSuSE, but I'd be surprised if they weren't....and the source is available, of course.

As TB0ne suggests - Cinelerra is probably your best bet - Ubuntu repo details: http://cinelerra.org/getting_cinelerra.php#ubuntu
