Instructions: Cut videos with Kdenlive on Linux and Windows

Table of Contents

A small clip for social media, a YouTube video about the last big trip, the hobby or even short film projects: the open source software Kdenlive is a versatile video editor that can be used to create very different videos. Getting started is pleasantly easy And if you want, you can also build small animations, add a subtitle track to the video and render it in the appropriate format for the desired publication platform.

Lots of effects and transitions provide variety, a library saves clips that are used frequently so that they are quickly available in all projects. Generators produce clips with a countdown, white noise, or a test pattern. The Kdenlive user interface can be adjusted in detail so that everything goes quickly when editing video.

If the holiday video is still missing a panoramic recording or background music, Kdenlive can search the online services Freesound, Pexels, Pixabay and the Internet Archive for freely available clips. The tool can save the license information in the project notes if you wish, so that you don’t have to worry about missing information later.
