This is really a pity, because otherwise OpenShot is a great editor.In light of my increasing video editing, I am sorry to say that I am=
beginning to contemplate switching to Windows for video. I spent the whole=
day today exploring video editing tools for Linux and it was a total disap=
pointment.

1. Tried promising Lightworks. However, it doesn't hav=
e an ability to synchronize audio to video on sub-frame level which makes l=
ack of this one little feature a show stopper for me - I record audio separ=
ately from video and I need very precise sync later on. OpenShot does it ea=
sily and I always am able to sync precisely (video camera does record audio=
as well and I am able to perfectly sync audio and then mute camera audio t=
rack).

2. Tried promising Blender Video Editor. Unfortunately, it=
does not support many video formats, at least on my machine and - most imp=
ortantly - it could not read or render the files that my camera shoots (nor=
mal mp4 files). Internet search revealed alleged problems working with mp4.=
Video software that has problems with mp4... I just cannot rely on it and =
besides I could find no solution whatsoever.

3. Tried kdenlive, hoping maybe it fixed its problems. Wha=
t do you know - it crashes on my Xubuntu 12.04 when I click "Add clip&=
quot;. So much for kdenlive - even the stock Ubuntu version does not work, =
simply incredible.

4. OpenShot works and I probably will have to use it for q=
uick edits, hoping it does not start randomly crashing. I did contact the d=
evelopers, but there have been numerous reports and I just don't think =
this is fixable by one solution. I also am not sure I will receive a reply.=

5. Tried Avidemux and some other video editor from the rep=
os - both could not even open an mp4 file properly.And then w=
hen I saw on some site a blogger write that "Linux is the best platfor=
m for high end video editing", I was just astonished at the inso=
lence of the claim. I mean, such nerve...

Anyway, I am quite disappointed, as I am not looking=
forward to having a dual boot or using an old laptop just for video editin=
g and equally not looking forward to fighting random OpenShot crashes. Linu=
x definitely lacks in terms of simple basic video editing, meaning that you=
are lucky if some video software happens to work on your machine. Don'=
t loose that luck - don't upgrade, just stick to it if it works - you n=
ever know what bug an upgrade will bring, a bug that might stay in there fo=
r years.

Happy hacking!=
