Re: [K12OSN] video editing software comments


I would like to second Kivo.  I have never used it, but I know people
who have and it came highly recommended.  BUT, it is my understanding
that it would not be good to run it in a terminal environment.  If
you've ever done video editing on a Windows computer, you'll know that
it is very processor intensive.  If you attempted to do the same thing
on a terminal, which only gets a share of the processing power.  Plus,
all that video has to go down the wire from the client to the server,
then back to be displayed on the screen.

I have heard that the LTSP crew is working on something that will make
the server aware of the capability of the client, and will push
intensive jobs to a client that is capable of handling it.

And thanks Calvin.  I'm currently dual booting between XP (when I
absolutely have to) and Ubuntu, with plans of never going to Vista.  I
have to do a lot of video editing for my job, so I intend to use your

Well, keeping in mind that I'm NOT a video expert, I was satisfied
using "kivo" to edit my son's football games.

I _did_ find it to be unreliable at grabbing video directly from the
camera, so I'd use dvgrab to download the video in handy 1 gig chunks
(less than 5 minutes' worth), then use kivo to assemble those chunks,
edit out the unimportant stuff, and output the video in Mpeg2 format,
suitable for burning on DVDs to send to college coaches.
