About 6 months ago I introduced myself to the GNU GPL program Blender. After a short round of getting used to it, I was able to produce the Custom Crawl Creator that allowed me to finally create crawls that were more in line to the format of the originals. I've always wondered if Blender could be utilized as a NLE, then our new found friend @"Habe" (feel free to chime in here sir) listed Blender as his video editor. Needless to say, I finally did some google searching (I highly recommend using google to seek out answers) and found this AMAZING 30 video tutorial that teaches us how to use Blender as a NLE.

So, if you are looking for an all in one media editor (there will be videos about importing audio as well) that is absolutely FREE. Strap on your learning boots, do some homework, and utilize this amazing resource.

Download Blender Here: https://www.blender.org/download/

Happy editing everyone!

Some tips taken from Habe.

Habe said:
Well this is the basic editing setup. Shift+K to cut and drag-drop move with right-click.
And then extract it in the animation desktop. You can extract full animations, audio and image sequence.

I like it, simple to use and great youtube support. + I have a Linux machine that has been set up to render photos. So I can switch between different machines as I want.

Wow, cool. Gonna spend a lot of time here. :)

If anyone has specific issues, just ask. I can make a short and to the point video on it.

-In that gif, what happens with the 3rd item I am moving: I accidentally clicked the edge. Edges are used to stretch an compress.

To anyone who doubts Blender's capabilities; it's been used on large movies from Wonder Woman to Life of Pi.
