    I know how to create videos in windows using various pictures slide show and music using movie maker.Also I know various software used in windows for watermarking videos before uploading to youtube.
    But I want to know how to create such videos in linux using few pictures and a slide show.I tried using cincelerra and its getting my head pulled out as I can understand anything.
    Please suggest me any good video creators&watermarking programs in linux which is very easy to use.And also please give the directions.thanks

    ffmpeg! As you can read the documentation you should find everything. It's an open source project, just google for it. I use it on all my projects.

    ffmeg is the tool to get the job done, but being a Win user, you might feel more comfortable working in a full GUI tool environment. Whenever you do video editing, there are usually 3 major tasks that you will return to over and over again.

    1) Audio track editing - Audacity

    2) Video editing - Avidemux

    3) Subtitles or Test marking - Subtile

    You can research their use, but this trifecta will get you almost anywhere your video editing will take you.

    ffmpeg is console aplication, and it's not depend on what desktop menager you use (kubuntu, xbuntu etc).

    Just type this in terminal, and you will get a fresh version of ffmpeg

    sudo apt-get install ffmpeg

    Now just use it - but first read the documentation to know how :)

    P.S. I have read doc, and didn't find how to add watermark to video :(
