I am planning to record lectures. My lectures will be slides or notepad with voice-over.

I am interested in a simple to use video editing software. The major things I need to do is

  • Cutting out a few seconds
  • Freezing the video for a few seconds
  • Speeding up or slowing down certain parts
  • perhaps do a completely different voice-over

The software should be as portable as possible though I am using Linux for the most part.


I have found Kdenlive to be a very good video-editing solution on Linux. It is free and open-source, with an active help forum and good documentation. It probably has many more features than you will ever need, but I didn't find the learning curve to be too high as a new user.
