Kino is a open source non-linear DV editor for GNU/Linux. It allow user to upload multiple video clips, cut and paste portions of video/audio, and save it to an edit decision list (SMIL XML format).
It offer some excellent features to capture DV video through IEEE-1394 (firewire) and allow detailed editing and transition effect for both video and audio. it uses many keyboard shortcuts for fast navigating and editing inside the movie. Also, Kino can export the composite movie in a number of formats: DV over IEEE 1394, Raw DV, DV AVI, still frames, WAV, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4. Still frame import and export uses gdk-pixbuf, which has support for BMG, GIF, JPEG, PNG, PPM, SVG, Targa, TIFF, and XPM.
