Install OpenShot Video Editor On Ubuntu 10.10 “Maverick Meerkat”

OpenShot Video Editor is a program designed to create videos on Linux.  It can easily combine multiple video clips, audio clips, and images into a single project, and then export the video into many common video formats. OpenShot is a non-linear video editor, which means any frame of video can be accessed at any time, and thus the video clips can be layered, mixed, and arranged in very creative ways.

All video clip edits (trimming, cutting, etc…) are non-destructive, meaning that the original video clips are never modified.You can use OpenShot to create photo slide shows, edit home videos, create tv commercials and on-line films, or anything else you can dream up.

To install OpenShot open a Terminal window (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and copy+paste the following lines:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jonoomph/openshot-edge
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openshot openshot-doc

When installed you can find OpenShot under Applications -> Sound & Video -> OpenShot
