Video editing with Shotcut
With Shotcut, you can edit videos, add effects, and point and click material together to create a new movie in next to no time.
The complete functionality of Shotcut  can be described easily: The tool edits videos, adds effects, joins the videos to create a new movie, and returns the results in a freely selectable video format. For a year, Dan Dennedy has been working hard on a small, relatively easy-to-use video editing program that newcomers to video editing and the occasional filmmaker will really appreciate. The feature scope and concept are somewhat reminiscent of the now defunct Kino  program, to which Dan Dennedy incidentally also contributed.
The software is currently in a process of rapid change: Almost every day a new version appears with fixes and minor new features. Nevertheless, this development does not prevent production use – if you are aware of the pitfalls. For this article, I used the release from September 13, 2013.
To set up Shotcut, first install the packages for Qt4, SDL 1.2, libsox, and libexif from your package manager. Under Ubuntu, enter the following command to install all the dependencies:
