I've been trying Kdenlive instead of Adobe Premiere Pro for video editing as an experiment over the weekend for a lil music video for a friend I filmed a while ago. I've had to think outside the box a bit and massively change my workflow for multi-camera stuff and the compositing is very basic but overall it's not too bad for a quick easy video editor =)
@Shrigglepuss What about OpenShot? Ever tried that? If so, how does it compare?
@UnclearFuture I tried OpenShot briefly a few months ago, of the two I think Kdenlive is probably the better one but I didn't try OpenShot out for as long so still worth giving it a go!
@Shrigglepuss Thank you, I'm going to try it out OpenShot one day, I would try Kden but don't like KDE or GNOME with the way they force having a load of libraries and programs etc you don't necessarily want or need, on you, heh.
@UnclearFuture Yeah, using a Kdenlive wasn't ideal because I use GNOME. Wayland struggled a bit with it, had to switch to Xorg for some of the dialogue windows to work, but apart from that it seemed fine!
@Shrigglepuss That's a shame. How is Wayland? I haven't had a chance to try it out yet since I only use XFCE.
@UnclearFuture For me personally it's been fine, been using it since it was default in Fedora, only really had issues with this program and colour pickers up to now =D
@Shrigglepuss Interesting about the colour pickers, but maybe they're only coded for xorg? If they're from like websites etc, why would they not be able to pick them up? Hmmm.
@UnclearFuture I'm not sure to be honest, but the gimp colour picker or a stand-alone one I tried didn't work so I presume it's picking whatever colour is under the cursor in an xorg-only way (colour pickers that can pick from anywhere on the screen btw)
@Shrigglepuss Intreguing, is there a bug report/issue on their github or whatever?
@UnclearFuture I'm not sure, but I presume they're working on it- both were GTK3 programs =) It's not a huge deal, I just take a screenshot and pick the colour from the image if needed, it's very rare I need to do this to be fair
For a way to implement it outside of the window manager, I suggest you take a look at: https://appcenter.elementary.io/com.github.spheras.desktopfolder
