searching for video editing options


greetings.

i have been trying to find a way to rip DVDs so i can edit clips.

i run fc8 on a couple of different systems.

i have the fedora and livna repositories installed.

it seems neither of these repositories offer any specific DVD rippers...there are some fine vid editors though.

so, i've tried a few times to get DVD::Rip to work, but there are discrepancies primarily due to DVD::Rip coming from freshrpms...apparently packages from freshrpms don't work with livna packages.

discrepancy usually starts with libx264.so.56


***

my question is, what would be a decent DVD ripper/ video editing combination for me to use with fc8?

i'd surely appreciate any feedback!

thanks

g

I've never used it, but I've heard that HandBrake is a pretty good ripper. For more info, you can read http://www.linux.com/feature/128105

As for a video editor, again, I've never used one, but I've heard that Linux lacking in that field, in the way that it doesn't anything as powerful as, let's say, the Avid products. You could try KDenLive, Open Movie Editor, Cinelerra or Blender (yes, it does video editing too).

I would also suggest those articles :

http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/9931

Hope this helps,
Rognon

rognon, quakeboy, thanks for the rapid responses.

i've used avidemux for editing a couple of vids, and i thought it was nifty.

i didn't know about blender and vids...i thought that was just 3D animation...i'll be lookin into that.

some good links here. thanks very much. i'll report back.

Please do. I have some stuff (mostly AVIs) that I'd kind of like to do some editing on, but its just seemed too much like work to find an editor under linux. If you find something that's great and easy to use, I'd love to hear about it.

well, i've found via the debian link a little gem called "vobcopy"

yes, there was a suitable rpm for fedora

http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/vobcopy/

thanks to quakeboy, i'm now ripping my latest performance DVD.

for editing, i have used avidemux a few times...that's in the livna repository.

i'll likely take a cue from rognon and try blender for some editing...

thanks again to both of you.
