video editing in *nix?


i know MAC is the end all be all of AV work, but are there programs in *nix that can compete/compair to the MAC/M$ counter parts?

in windows there are several programs that can perform close to or as well as their MAC counter parts, are there such programs in *nix to do the same?

i am talking full blown editing, graphics manipulation, coding, rendering, etc...

thanks.

capurting video from mulitple formats, then rendering them out to mpeg1-4 format for DVD-r and DVD+r in addition to adding graphics, splicing the sound with vid, etc...

taking raw footage and making movies out of it... full blown editing of video formats.

mencoder can encode from all formats mplayer can play ... using lavc as the codec you can tell it to do mpeg4 etc etc ..

audio is a different story ... ogmtools comes with a program to mix ogg files into video (mencoder as i know of cant encode to ogg, but it can encode from ogg if you installed it to support ogg) .... transcode is similar to mencoder, but has a few features you might like or need at certain times ...

lives is a front for mplayer/mencoder .. avidemux is a front for transcode (altho its usually better to use transcode directly)

... i usually like to encode the audio to pcm, then rip it out, send it to a pipe to another program (sox in this case) to turn up the volume, then pipe that to oggenc to turn it into a ogg vorbis audio file, then use ogmmerge to merge the audio with the video (after i encode the video )

hmmm, I'm not sure about that effects stuff, at least i don't know of programs that would allow for great effects, but i never needed them, so i never really looked hard, avidemux and lives has some effects you can do, ....

anyways, as long as you have the disk space, you can easily break up the video, split off the audio, turn the video into png's for manual editing, or some other format for editing .. etc .. then turn it back into a good video

my PC i hope you don't mean personal computer ........

and you cant expect one tool to do everything, read up on UNIX,

heres the LQ wiki page to look at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Unix_philosophy

and heres the quote from it
Quote:
From Doug McIlroy, the man who invented piping

This is the Unix philosophy: Write programs that do one thing and do it well. Write programs to work together. Write programs to handle text streams, because that is a universal interface.""
so theres not really to many all in 1 programs, rather many programs that (after some if no modification to the video/audio stream) can work together .. this gives a wider range of codecs that can be used, and allows 1 program to concentrate on a few things, instead of trying to be everything to everybody .. might seem a bit irritating until you get used to it ......
