Because creating video and animation programs can be complex, there are few open source programs for video editing. Blender is an excellent program, but has a steep learning curve; be sure to give yourself plenty of time to learn. Cinelarra, while a good program, is buggy. Also, note that Cinelarra and Kino only run on GNU/Linux.
