Linux and professional video editing.

Browsing the net among the various blogs, I often encounter articles that talk about how impossible it is for a professional to do video editing in Linux. Almost all of these articles are the result of simple copy and paste without any test or foundation. In fact, we always read that Linux is not suitable for video markers because no program can satisfy the requirements of a professional job. So without any foundation they always recommend the usual three or four programs considered semi-professional, but in reality these programs are inefficient, without functions and very limited. All this happens because you copy articles and do not really use the software like a professional, eventually going to recommend commercial programs that run on one or two distributions only where it would take an IT technician to configure them. In reality Linux has a professional level program (certainly not for Hollywood) that largely meets all the needs of professional production. This program is Kdenlive, always updated with new functions, stable and efficient. In conclusion, we assure you that many professionals in Italy use Kdenlive for professional productions, including the graphic studio MARIANI-PHOTO. The limit of use of Kdenlive is only the technical capacity and the imagination of those who use it, not the program. Needless to propose programs that have not been updated and developed for decades. Or still others that have two or three settings only. The thing I do not understand is to continue to offer programs in development with many promises and nothing done, which will take many years before being ready. Always if they won’t be abandoned much earlier.
