I suppose you mean Linux?

Here's a link to a page if you didn't know about it already:

Ghostcut, do you edit movies in Ubuntu? In that case what apps are you working with? I use Vegas in Windows but would really like to switch to a Linux application if there is any good alternative.

I use VirtualBox with a stripped-back version of Windows XP, that runs Sony Vegas.

I try and use software in Linux either with Wine or natively, whenever possible.

Unfortunately at this time there aren't any very good video editing tools for Linux. It's a shame, because I would love to either be able to run Vegas in Linux or have a decent free software alternative.

Well theres Cinelerra (NLE Editor for Linux) which looks very powerful but unfortunately none of the Linux users on the board have ever managed to get it to work properly without crashing all over the palce.

I try to run Vegas in VirtualBox (XP) too but it's very slow with many effects added to the video tracks.

I also have Cinelerra installed but haven't got it to work properly either.

Maybe try upping the allocated video RAM to about 30MB?

If you meant in VBox, I have already set it to 64 Mb (out of 128 Mb).

I need to reinstall everything due to a reformat - Automatix screwed up my last install of Ubuntu so badly I had to restart from scratch.

However.

Ubuntu Hardy Heron came out the same day!

This isn't strictly related to fanediting, but I wanted to point out a great application that runs in Wine:

PDF X-change Viewer

As far as I know it is the only easy option for highlighting and extracting text from PDFs in Linux. It's crazy, because I never used to like reading on the computer, but now that I can highlight in more colors than I have physical highlighters, and easily extract the text into another paper, I've found myself preferring the on-screen reading.
