    Default Good video editor

    I cant get any good video editor for my Opensuse 12.2. Kdenlive, lombard, pitivi are all good-for-nothing softwares. they dont even support avi. Can anyone tell me a good editor which supports avi or mpg or mp4?

    Thanx...

    If you want a powerful video editor just short of commercial products, a leading candidate should be openshot.

    IMO,

    kdenlive should be installed from the packman repos as should the corresponding media codecs else you might run into issues but otherwise it handles avi and every other conceivable media format very very well! kdenlive is the most powerful and feature complete linux video editor. You could try lightworks or blender video editor but just give kdenlive a chance.

    We can help with your troubleshooting!

    kdenlive does support various codecs inside the avi wrapper. But note avi is a wrapper so stating something does not support avi is truely a meaningless statement if the general wrapper construct is supported, which it IS supported by kdenlive.

    I recommend kdenlive.

    Note there is a kdenlive support forum here which will help you with kdenlive issues: Forums | Kdenlive

    For me, kdenlive could not support avi (dv) files. I too want to use kdenlive as what i can see from the interface, it has a huge lot of facilities. Can you state a good converter to convert mp4 into avi or any other kdenlive supported format? I had previously used Allok mpeg4 converter, which is an exe file but runs smoothly with wine.

    I reinstalled kdenlive, this time from packman. While starting kdenlive after installation, the config wizard started and in the 'Checking MLT Engine' window, an error was shown in the list (with a cross sign) and this was written beside it:

    Avformat module (FFmpeg)

    I think it means ffmpeg is malfunctioning. I have ffmpeg installed.


    Thanx...
    Limping towards kdenlive..

    I'm not entirely sure why you prefer your videos to be in an avi container, but you can copy audio and video streams like this:

    ffmpeg -i name.mp4 -vcodec copy -sameq -acodec copy name.avi

    If your "name" has spaces, put quotes around it like this:

    ffmpeg -i "name.mp4" -vcodec copy -sameq -acodec copy "name.avi"

    It's one more step, but an easy one.

    I tried using qscale 0 instead of sameq. It worked, but the avi file thus formed is still not getting detected by kdenlive. When I try to insert it, kdenlive says:
