OepnShot [http://www.openshotvideo.com] is a budding non-linear video editor in linux. It is easy to use and comes with nice features.
You can download the openshot.deb file and dependency files from the above link.
After installing all files using “sudo dpkg -i *.deb” we can start openshot from terminal.
For me, it threw the following error.
Added /usr/share/openshot to system path
OpenShot (version 0.9.34)
/usr/share/openshot/windows/SimpleGladeApp.py:340: GtkWarning: gtk_toolbar_set_icon_size: assertion `icon_size != GTK_ICON_SIZE_INVALID’ failed
return gtk.glade.XML(self.glade_path, root, domain)

There is some problem with reading svg files in python.
So, searched in google and found that installing librsvg2-common will solve this problem.
sudo apt-get install librsvg2-common
Now openshot works well.
OpenShot is made of python,pyGTK,Glade,MLT framework.
It needs more improvements and students can participate and get their final year project done.
