Lightbulb Basic video creator for Fedora Workstation


Hi guys, do you know a basic software for creating videos in Fedora?

Just a lightweight application to create videos.

Lightweight since my desktop is just a dual core Pentium with a 1GB memory.

Thanks.

Hi...

I'm not sure how lightweight the newer versions are but OpenShot might be a good solution. You can find installation instructions here.

Regards...

Blender is another option. But rendering video on that hardware might take forever.

Totally agree with you,I edited one simple text animation from a template. It was a 12 seconds intro video and it takes at least 14 hours from a 6GB laptop.

If I will use blender on this 1GB desktop then I think it might take weeks, that's why I'm looking for some lightweight video editor application.

Thanks.

The thing about video is resolution. You have to process as many pixels as there are. There's no easy shortcut to this. Video is video, and it takes processing power to alter it.
