    This is huge. It looks fantastic, I must try it. Cinelerra blazed the way early on, but was PAINFUL to use after using the likes of vegas video.

    Anyone tried this yet

    This app shows a lot of promise-easy to use controls, navigation, etc. The only problem I have is poor audio-scratchy, choppy. Any solutions?
    Ubuntu 9.10. Thank you

    I’ll have to give this a try. I bailed on Cinelerra because it was so hard to use and went back to Vegas on Wind0ze. If this one works well, I’ll be glad to hop over to Linux again 😀

    I am getting the following error while trying to launch openshot from terminal. Any help much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    OpenShot (version 1.1.1)
    *** ERROR: MLT Python bindings failed to import ***
    *** ERROR: MLT Python bindings failed to import ***
    Exception in thread Thread-1:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “/usr/lib/python2.6/”, line 525, in __bootstrap_inner
    File “/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6/openshot/classes/”, line 170, in run
    NameError: global name ‘mlt’ is not defined

    Error: OpenShot has not been installed in the Python path.
    (Both the site-packages and /usr/share/openshot folders were checked)

    Use the following command to install OpenShot:
    $ sudo python install

    @Kiddo: Do you have installed the dependencies package and/or kdenlive? Using kdenlive and openshot simultanously will break the mlt framework for openshot. (May be fixed, had this issue with version 0.9x of openshot)

  7. Kiddo says:

    Thanks for the reply 🙂
    I tried launching Openshot after removing Kdenlive, but getting the same error 😕
