    Phoronix: Flowblade 2.0 GTK3-Based Linux Video Editor Now Available

    For those still trying to find a suitable non-linear open-source Linux video editing solution that fits your needs, Flowblade 2.0 is now available for this decade old video editor that is arguably not as well known as the likes of Kdenlive and OpenShot. Flowblade 2.0 comes with the largest workflow and user experience improvements since the early days of the project...

    Been using Vegas for years would LOVE a proper alternative. While Vegas would crash, it never stuffed up my projects like KdenLive did. The latest versions of Vegas though using AMD GPU accel take my video encodes from 16Mins to 2.5 mins with a RX480 and with a 1070 do around 7 mins. So AMD is def the card to have for Vegas. I hate switching OS's though.

    cinelerra-gg https://www.cinelerra-gg.org/
    openshot-qt https://www.openshot.org/
    shotcut https://shotcut.org/
    pitivi http://www.pitivi.org/

    And here's closed source:

    Davinci Resolve https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/pro...avinciresolve/
    Lightworks https://www.lwks.com/

    Maybe one day I'll try them all out and post a comparison chart or review of each one.
    It's great to have 20 different video editors when most of them segfault every 5 minutes. Or perform crappily even on high end hardware. I've tried pitivi, openshot, kdenlive. They all sucked really bad. Kdenlive was probably the best, but it was more crash prone too..

    More like "by the nature of free products". Developers of free products, open source or not, usually don't have the money to set up a marketing campaign for their product, so discussions, blog posts, etc. are the only way for them to get some attention.

    2009, to be exact: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flowblade

    Locating good directories of Linux applications/products seems to be a struggle. If anyone has a suggestion I am all ears.

    By the nature of open source, some things get on GitHub or Source Forge and you never hear about them other than through sites like Phoronix, blogs or discussion forums.

    I have been finding myself reading Linux rags from the UK to try to get updated on either existing products or new ones that float out into the ether.

    Other sites like alternative.net just don't cover it well.

    I ran into one case where a UK rag talked about a new Wine manager called Bottles. It took some searching on Git Hub, but I finally found it (just to find out it only works on Elementary). When I google "linux video editor", Flowblade has never come up. (for me at least)

    Installed FlowBlade 2.0 yesterday and monkeyed around with it for a bit. I like the familiar interface and it seemed to run nice on my ancient (AMD FX8120) PC.
    I was looking for transitions and didn't find anything other than fade in/fade out. It seemed to have a "Vegas" look and feel to it which I like. I'm going to read some tutorials and play around with it some if I find time today.

    I kind of agree with you, except that my experience is different. Most cinematographers don't use the likes of flowblade, kdenlive, or openshot. I have heard of some cinematographers using Blender professionally. Most use utter crap like Premiere Pro or if they are able to afford Final Cut Pro and hardware requirements that go with it.

    Personally I use kdenlive limited to 4 cores on a Ryzen 1800X mostly to exposing CS:GO cheaters, videos are usually quite short ~10min. I have no problem with a NLE potentially being a tiny bit slower and keen to try flowblade out soon. I don't deem my project worthy of lossless recording, so my recorder's encoding needs to happen as quick as possible. I am fortunate to have something as good as x264.
