The Auteur Non-Linear Editor is a project seeking to create a professional-grade but user-friendly video editor for Gnu, Linux, BSD, and other Unix and Unix-like systems. Curently it is stalled in its alpha release; the sole programmer on the team is busy working on other real-life projects right now, so until either the rest of the team learns to program or until we attract more programmers, the project is, for all practical purposes, frozen. Feel free to contact us if you can help.
The Auteur project is on hold currently. If you are looking for a video editor for Linux that is active and reliable, please check these projects:
