Anyone using Windows knows that good, open source, video editing software is difficult to come by. Sure you could pony up a ton of money for Avid’s Final Cut or Adobe’s Premiere Pro, but for most people that software is too much. Jashaka is a decent alternative, but it’s not as easy to navigate as say, Apple’s iMovie.
So here’s some good news: Lifehacker reports that the folks behind VLC (the finest open source media player going) are working on an open-source cross-platform video editing software that sounds pretty awesome.
The software, named VideoLAN Movie Creator, should be available “soon”, and if it’s anything like their media player, then it sould handle multiple video files (like .MST!) and have a fairly seamless UI.
