Well, not editing video on Fedora Linux. I can't get the windows
software to work under Wine either. No one has on the internet that I
can find. I'm at an end.
I knew Cinelerra would not work. it has the same trouble the other
software had. That is, the sound is off from the movie after editing.
Even when I follow the example line by line of someone who knows what
they are doing, I get bad results. This makes me think there is a bad
library involved. It is deeper than bad settings. My choices for export
are check for check and still, nothing.
This means, I cannot edit video on my system. I'm going to create a
Ubuntu virtual machine and try to edit a simple video. Find out if that
works. If so, I may give up on Fedora completely and make a more
permanent switch to Ubuntu for all my home Linux needs.
When this fails as well, I will ask Nat if I can barrow her computer
just long enough to edit a video and find out if the software that came
with the device works. I'm confident that this will work.
When I play videos straight off the device, they play fine. Well,
they play fine when I tell my machine to shut up and get on with it.
The problem lies with my machine and my limited knowledge of all things
video. As these things go, I figure it will take me about eighteen
months from first attempt to get video editing to work as I planned.
This is about the normal period for me to really get something to work
in Linux. Sad, but true.
When none of this works, I'll buy a Mac. (not)
