The gaining momentum in open source based products arise from the enthusiasm and motivation among individuals to create and design software that are great in performance and features. It satisfies their urge to the fullest. Video editors also fall into this category where there are lots of products in the market, but they all have some or the other issues like platform dependency or performance bugs.
This is an open source based product that allows cutting, filtering and editing videos easily. The software is backed by powerful algorithms that makes your job easy and smooth. It is distributed under the GPL license. It is available for multiple platforms like Linux, which is the largest user, BSD, Mac and Windows. The best part is that this program is build with contributions from many and hence, there are a lot of perspectives and ways in which it works.
Video Filter Manager is a novel addition to this software and it is usually not found in other proprietary software provided by other vendors.
This is a collection of nicely written filters to create beautiful effects on your frames. They are listed under seven categories and there are many filters in each one of them. It allows usual transformations, interlacing, colors, noise and sharpness control and there is even a tag called miscellaneous. The Main Window is a very neat and clean interface. There are just three main buttons to add video, audio and set the file type. It also has a lot of other options, but they are hidden under the popup menus.
The downloads page of Avidemux is enough to indicate its compatibility. It supports a lot of platforms, only desktop versions, through its code once and recompile strategy. The source code can be changed via scripting. It allows you to even automate usual tasks by creating projects, job queue and coding them using its powerful script.
The good thing for developers is that the binaries are freely available and redistributable. They can create patches and add them to the code.
Translations and bug reports are always welcome and any changes will be reflected in the original code if found suitable for the next release.
A lot of time the result of strong motivation can become the general norm among many others except the one who created it and then the power of simple initiatives from unknown individuals come to the lime light.
