Excelente editor de video, incluso para videos muy grandes. Pero, debes saber muy bien como usarlo: dominar los desfases del video para usar las transiciones y el movimiento de cada imagen. Puedes preparar tus audios y música de fondo en un solo archivo para evitar incompatibilidades entre diferentes audios anexados, con espacio inicial y final extras para que no disminuya la voz. En Linux Mint 17.2 Sonya, instalar: livav-tools para la exportación, libsox-fmt-mp3 para poder anexar el audio con música. Con éstas librerías agregadas, utilizando el gestor de paquetes, todo funciona muy bien. Excellent video editor, even for very large videos. But, you must know very well how to use it: master the lags of the video to use the transitions and the movement of each image. You can prepare your audios and background music in a single file to avoid incompatibilities between different audios attached, with extra initial and final space so that your voice does not diminish. In Linux Mint, install: libavc1394-tools and ffmpeg for export, libsox-fmt-mp3 to be able to append the audio with music. With these libraries added, using the package manager, everything works very well.

Works fine in mint 17.2. "sudo apt-get install libav-tools" will fix export error with missing avconv. Also, may need libsox installed to import your audio file format (just use find :)). Exported slideshow with audio successfully. Good program, simple, gets job done and no bloat :).

In Mint 17 it does not work since it depends on the ffmpeg package which is not in de (Ubuntu 14.04LTS) repositories anymore.

It might be great if only I could install it. Right now even update manager won't work. Do I really have to buy win8 :-((
