Video editor suggestions


I need to pick a video file and "glue" small pieces of audio at custom time offsets.

What video editor can I use for this?

Preferably with few dependencies, a CLI batch script won't be a problem as well. I'm fine with passing it the name of video file and a text file containing

Code:
audiofilename,offset
pairs, so it generates me a new video file with sound.

I have heard Klaatu speak highly of kdenlive, but I think it's one of the more versatile and therefore more complex options.

Here's an article that gives capsule reviews of several Linux video editors.

I am trying my luck with finding an LQ user who did exactly this generic task and could point his finger to the software he used for it.

It's certainly worth a try. I wish you luck. I've edited audio, but not video.

Another thing you might try is searching YouTube for tutorials. I've found some excellent tutorials on YouTube hiding behind the cats and the crud.

I'd think that most of these should work. https://www.tecmint.com/best-free-vi...res-for-linux/


ffmpeg is a very powerful tool but might take more time to learn and play with I'd think.


There are some portable windows programs that will work in wine too.
