PiTiVi is a free, intuitive and featureful movie editor for the Linux desktop.
PiTiVi inherits its capabilities for importing and exporting (rendering) media from the GStreamer framework, or plugins for the GStreamer framework.
It supports simple media editing capabilities such as trimming, snapping, splitting and cutting of clips.
Audio mixing is supported by curves, visualised as line segments drawn over an audio waveform.
PiTiVi has the ability to step through a piece of media using scrubbers or keyboard shortcuts. Audio and video clips can be linked together, and treated as a single clip.
Initial support for video mixing (compositing and transitions) has been added in late 2009 but is still under heavy work.
