I was considering moving to Linux once again in a more positive frame of mind, especially with the release of Win8 - darn it I use mostly Open Source software in Windows anyway and it looks like a lot of us will be jumping ship in the next few years, so might as well get started!
I’ve kinda begun a relationship with Ubuntu lately (albeit with a dualboot for now), I had Mint a few years back for 6 months, but we just didn’t get on that well
I know it’s partly a matter of taste, but what software do you use in your Linux studio setup? For me currently I’ve begun working with:
Plus the Restricted Extras of course and the default bits and bobs that comes with Ubuntu 12.10.
Can anyone recommend anything else that may be of use that I’ve missed, or any plugins that maybe useful, especially for Gimp?
I realise that Lightworks beta will soon be available for Linux and that should be an improvement over Pitivi - on Windows I’d use Sony Vegas - so Pitivi is a bit of a step down but functions similarly. I think I’ve tried most of the others like Open Shot, Kdenlive, Kino and Lives. I like the way in Vegas you can adjust the clips volume with a curve on the timeline and also fade the clip with a curve too - I’m not keen on key-frame style editing for video work, it’s just not very quick (at least for me), that’s why I don’t use Blender for this sadly.
A good Video/Audio convertor would be handy too if you’ve any suggestions, with a GUI of course!
Thanks in advance,
