Video Editor for Linux

Really many people are missing a good and easy to use video editor for Linux.
In fact Cinelerra is a professional video editor but its learning curve make novice users away.

Users needs a MS Movie Maker replacement to create simple videos with subtitle or transition text, but doing it on Cinelerra or even using the Blender video editor features is a pain.

Here is a listing of some video editor for Linux:

OpenMovieEditor:
I think this is a great Move Maker replacement. You can add text directly on screen and have many video effects

To install on Debian/Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install openmovieeditor

Avidemux:
This software is good to cutting and converting format, then it is not so useful for our main purpose.

Kino:
Just like Avidemux it doesn’t support text edition to do subtitle or text transition.

Kdenlive:
Support many effects and appears easy to use. But I can’t find text support.

Pitivi:
This is a great video editor, although it is a recent project it has great features. It doesn’t support text editing for now.
