Kino is a non-linear video editor for Linux that allows the user to import DV or SMIL files into a storyboard, that can be dragged onto the timeline. It is also possible to capture video via firewire e.g. from a CamCorder. You can add effects to your clips such as audio/video filters and audio/video transitions.

Once the user has finished editing their video, they can export it in a variety of formats (MPEG). It is possible to transfer the video through IEEE 1394, or output still frames, audio, into a dv file or to mpeg.
