Making Videos on Ubuntu Media with OpenShot and Friends

MOV format for Apple

AVI format for Windows

I'll be giving a talk at Penguicon 2015, April 24-26 2015 about using the Linux OpenShot application and a few other tools to make a movie.

The demo movie will be this little "Music Video" built out of a publicly available MIDI track, some free images from the net and a couple parody verses I composed.

The bulk of the assembly for this project was done with OpenShot, but other Linux tools got used to generate some zoom & pans, create stop-action sequences, convert sounds, etc.
