Free and Open Source Video Editor
Kdenlive is an acronym for KDE Non-Linear Video Editor.
It is a free software (GPL licensed) primarily aimed at the Linux platform, but it also works on BSD 1 as it relies only on portable components (Qt and MLT framework). Windows versions are also available, with some drawbacks. See Windows issues for more information. A port on MacOS is also available.
Through the MLT framework Kdenlive integrates many plugin effects for video and sound processing or creation. Furthermore, Kdenlive brings a powerful titling tool, a subtitling feature with AI-supported speech to text conversion, nested timelines (new in version 23.04), animation support through Glaxnimate integration (new in version 22.08) and thus can be used as a complete studio for video creation.
Video editing features:
Multitrack editing with a timeline and virtually unlimited number of video and audio tracks, plus the ability to split audio and video from a clip in multiple tracks
Non-blocking rendering. You can keep working on a project at the same time a project is being transformed into a video file
Dozens of effects and transitions that can be used with ease and even saved as custom effects with their settings for use in other projects
Keyframeable effects with linear or smooth curves (more to come in future versions)
Simple tools for easy creation of color clips, text clips and image clips
Automatic Clips creation from pictures directories, with crossfade transitions among the images
Configurable keyboard shortcuts, toolbars and interface layouts to accommodate your workflow
Audio and video scopes
Proxy editing for your 4K+ footage
Themable interface supporting dark themes
… and much more!
