Today, I was bored, and I decided to look around for a good video editor for linux, I dont know much about video editing and would like to learn a great deal more, here is a screenshot of CinelerraI just downloaded and finished installing cinerella, it looks like an old app, but I see that it is packed with plenty of special effects to add to your video's/movies. It looks a bit more powerful than avidemux. What I did was load up a divx movie and encoded the whole movie as a oil painting lol, it looks pretty cool, you can also add flames and other neat things to the video.
Here is some documentation to learn more about cinerella and what it does.
Here is an easy howto to install Cinelerra so you can be on your way editing videos...
