I wan't to start making videos on Linux but I can't find anything to record with. I found some video editing software but I just wan't to hear what others say on all of them.
I have no idea about such software but @Logan in his latest build log mentions quite a few...You might want to start there.
DaVinci Resolve is a really good editor for Linux or at least what I have heard.
Use Open Broadcaster for recording. Look under "Linux" for installation instructions.
I would use OBS but I am having problems with the ffmpeg codec
Kdenlive is an intuitive and powerful multi-track video editor, including most recent video technologies. Since I use Adobe Premiere from time to time, I've easier accepted the work flow in Kdenlive.
Lightworks is EditShare's Academy and Emmy award-winning, professional Non-Linear Editing (NLE) software supporting resolutions up to 4K as well as video in SD and HD formats.
@Logan mentioned Blender in his videos. Blender is a free and open source 3D animation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation.
I've heard some good things about kdenlive as a video editor.
I have OBS and kdenlive working on ubuntu gnome 14.10 with no headaches on the install.
That said I have a face for radio and a voice that should not be heard. For simple screen sharing the EasyScreenCast extension is convenient to keep on the desktop. OBS and kdeenlive are full featured and present an entirely new set of things I have no idea about.
i tried to install OBS on ubuntu gnome last night. it installed fine, but it just crashes.
i'm gonna try kazam as a screen recorder. if that doesn't work, i'll just use google hangouts and see how that goes.
as for video editor, i tried kdenlive a few months ago on linux mint and it was pretty good. though i'm no expert, just a curious user.
