One more tip on video editing on Linux: Kino Video Editor is another option, but you will have to use the "dvgrab" software to import the video into Linux from a camcorder (there is a link on the Kino web site).

Your podcast is amazing. I learn new stuff every time. I hate Macs though, cause I don't own one and they're overpriced.

Brandon Jackson said...

I agree they are very costly but I really feel I get the most bang for my buck with my MacBook Pro.

There are always options of refurbished Macs for those who can't afford a new one. I believe Apple (whose customer service has been great for me) gives a 1 year warranty with anything refurbished you purchase.

At any rate, we try to incorporate a little bit of everything so people who feel the same can continue enjoying us. Thanks for the good words :)

hi guys. good show. I did a search and found a good open source website at www.osalt.com and it mentions Linux NLEs Kino(that you mentioned) and another called Cinelerra. The screenshots look great but I have no access to Linux. Maybe someday I'll feel confident to do away with Mac OS. But for now thought I would just share.
