Video editing software in Linux

I am about to dump windows and go with Linux so I want to know if there are many video editing programs available. Currently I use tmpgenc dvd author and dvd shrink. Can someone tell me where I can find a comprehensive list of programs for video editing and dvd burning. Thanks

Well, here's a convenient list of Linux multimedia projects. Also, your question has been asked many times at this site; try searching for 'linux video editing' for more posts.

Your post suggests that you are interested in DVD encoding. acid_kewpie, a regular poster on this site, has a project called AcidRip, a GUI frontend to mencoder. Search this site for acid_kewpie's posts. There are also DVD::Rip and gtranscode, both GUI frontends to transcode. Both mencoder and transcode are excellent encoding tools, far superior to TMPGEnc.

For a simple editor like VirtualDub, look for avidemux. kino is a consumer-level editor that's handy with DV cameras. cinelerra is a higher end editor with more features, but is relatively more complex to use.

I am told that dvdshrink can work under wine since you are already comfortable with that software.
