    Does it have to be open source? How about "free as in beer" and "not free, but cheap"?

I found two:


It is an open source free, video editing software, effects, and compositing suite.
When I used it several months back, it was very unintuitive and I couldn't figure out how to use it. However, there are tutorials for Jahshaka now.


Kdenlive is an open source, multi track video editor released under the GNU Public Licence.
