Shotcut is a new video editor I started working on almost a year ago. It uses MLT under the hood - a project I have been working on for over 8 years! This is exciting because it not only works on Linux desktops but also Windows and (Mac) OS X. Not only that, you are not required to compile it yourself; so, even my friends and family who wonder what it is I spend so much time working on can get it and see (possibly even use!) it firsthand.
Supports hundreds of audio and video formats and codecs thanks to FFmpeg. No import required which means native editing, plus multi-format timelines, resolutions and frame-rates within a project. Frame accurate seeking supported for many video formats.
Blackmagic Design SDI and HDMI for input and preview monitoring. Screen, webcam and audio capture. Network stream playback. Supports resolutions up to 4k and capture from SDI, HDMI, webcam, JACK & Pulse audio, IP stream, X11 screen and Windows DirectShow devices.
Multiple dockable and undockable panels, including detailed media properties, recent files with search, playlist with thumbnail view, filter panel, history view, encoding panel, jobs queue, and melted server and playlist. Also supports drag-n-drop of assets from file manager.

It Works! Easier To Use Than I Thought Too!
