Wondering what video editor should I learn to use? It does not need to have fancy effects, just cutting clips and muting and adding audio…
Currently I use Pitivi however its renderer is not the fastest, has no mute button for individual clips (afaik) and UI is not perfect. It does its job if there is no better options.
But I am wondering how other Linux video editors look like today in 2021? What I value in good editor is ease of use, fast import speed, rendering speed and low amount of dependencies…
Also it has to be free software and on Debian repository (testing)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).
Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.

I’ve used this a good amount, and its solid. Very easy to use.
Reason why I have not tried kdenlive is the amount of dependencies and its integration to kde desktop…
kdenlive is the best you can get. even if it’s uses Qt/KSE dependences it adapt it’s look to match the GTK styles.
