denlive: Itis an acronym for KDEN on-Linear Video Editor and its a non linear video editor. It is primarily aimed at the GNU/Linux platform but also works on BSD and macOS. Non-linear video editing is much more powerful than beginners’ (linear) editors, hence it requires a bit more organization before starting. It is currently being ported to Windows as a GSOC project. Kdenlive is based on the MLT framework and accepts many audio and video formats, allows users to add effects, transitions and render into the format of their choice. This program is Free Software as described by the Free Software Foundation under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
