I tried Openshot 1.0 and I was pleasantly surprised (although still not sure of why Pulseaudio SDL is required as dependency), and I only found ONE thing missing for it to fit every one of my purposes, and that thing is allow to trim, or specify the end of the video in some way. The minimum time is 1 minute, and it doesn't accept fractions, but I see myself with a 23 second video and no way (inside Openshot) to cut the rest so it is 23 seconds long.
Maybe this can be done with markers (start/end marker?) or a simple time selection (discarding anything above the specified limit).
While I can do it with mencoder, it's a really missed feature that will help many...and done visually is better at times, instead than command line.
I hope you consider this feature. Best regards!
