kdenlive is (in my experience) the easiest software which will allow you to perform that task in a few steps and without problems. Even so, the OpenShot Video Editor project is also useful but it yet needs lots of hard work to get closer to the kdenlive. Here are a screenshot of the kdenlive and openshot respectively: I would suggest you to take a look ...

I like kdenlive for finishing up as well or clipping out small chunks...but if he wants to split a LARGE lecture into smaller pieces he could try: ffmpeg -i input.mpg -ss 00:00:10 -t 00:00:30 out1.mpg -ss 00:00:35 -t 00:00:30 out2.mpg discussion of the command is here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=480343

You need to convert them first... they never worked without converting (at least for me): mencoder -idx out.ogv -o out.avi -oac mp3lame -ovc lavc Then you can edit them in your favourite video editor (I for one prefer Avidemux).

You may wish to give a chance to kdenlive, which includes several keyframable plugins like those you may need in order to do that work. It comes to my mind the track plugin "MaskOMate" to "cut" the part of the image that you wish to put overlaying the video. Of course, it will be useful if you first prepare the images in order to fit the project's size, ...

You have probably noticed that Avidemux has several "modes" of work. Cutting/splitting videos without re-encoding can only be done in "Copy" mode. It also means that no video filters can be applied. The "Copy" mode works by copying the raw compressed video from the original file (container) into the new file (container). That's why you can't use video ...

You could try OpenShot, which has also got some 3D Blender animations for titles, but it can be a bit frustrating. Other user-friendly options are PiTiVI and Kdenlive. As far as I've used them, you can easily join clips, insert text and images and export videos to different formats. There is a list of open-source editing software on Wikipedia. Within a ...
