What Video Editor

#1 Post by towwire » Sun Mar 11, 2018 12:59 pm

What video editor will edit mp4 and mkv files? I just need to delete some frames and their sound at the beginning and end of the files. So need one that will show frame by frame. One that is fairly simple.

kdenlive, which is availabe in the mx-packageintaller ->popular apps. I think Openshot will as well, but I prefer kdenlive.

FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

How much of KDE does Kdenlive bring in?

a lot of Qt and kde libraries, but no kde itself.

openshot is gtk if you want to try that first.

Thanks. I think I'll try Openshot first. It's been a log time since I have done any editing. The last time was a
windows program that showed frame by frame.

Openshot will do what you want.

If you are only going to use it once, you can download an AppImage, so you don't need to install it.

I read through the link and decided to try vidcutter first. Install showed all good but it does not run, just a spinning wheel on the mouse and then stops, nothing else happens.

HI there,
i'm using shotcut, no problem so far with MKV, it seems very complete and its interface is still clear even with all the options it proposes. You 'll find it in MX repos (and it doesn't depend on any specific DE).

Its dependencies :

Code: Select all

apt-cache showpkg shotcut
Package: shotcut
Versions: 
17.10-1mx17+1 (/var/lib/apt/lists/nl.mxrepo.com_mx_repo_dists_stretch_main_binary-amd64_Packages) (/var/lib/dpkg/status)

Any idea's?
Darn, the MX 16 version is the older build. Do any errors show up if you run vidcutter from the terminal?

Avidemux also makes it pretty easy to trim videos. I think you can install it from deb-multimedia without dragging in anything else (only install avidemux, then disable the repo) or I have it in a separate third-party OBS repo: http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=127574 Patent issues with some encoders that it uses keeps it out of Debian and MX repos.
