Another FOSS Video Editor Round Up

February 2, 2008 Leave a comment

Over at the BOHOL Blog, they’ve written a review covering a number of open source video editing software. Touched on in this article are Jashaka, Avidemux, Cinelerra, Kino and LiVES. The article is much more of an overview than a hands on review of the capabilities of each application.

Jashaka seems to receive the most attention. “Once finished, it would be in the same market space as Newtek’s Video
Toaster and Pinnacle Liquid Edition. With all promised features it
would be a rival to Adobe’s After Effects or Autodesk’s Combustion – in
fact the GUI is heavily based upon Combustion.” Big goals and high aims for Jashaka!

Recently Jah Shaka, the founder and lead for this project, says the “project has been liberated from its evil benefactors and is now free to
get back to its roots and start building the high end visual effects
tools it set out to deliver!”

Perhaps liberation from evil will result in the project moving forward again. Good luck to them.
