I have looked through the interwebs for many an FLV video editor. There are many to select from on CNET and for any search on Google. I have downloaded and tried many of these. Even with them being trial software, I was not impressed. In a sentence, I’ve had horrible luck trying to find a good FLV editor.
I’m not totally surprised since most people don’t do a lot of FLV editing. Most people who work with videos create and edit videos in another format (MPEG, AVI, etc.) and then use a FLV converter to turn the file into a Flash Video. If an edit needed to be done to the video, it would be done in the original format and re-exported into Flash Video.
This brings me to my point: I have found a pretty cool FLV editor that is not trial software. You can clip the timeline very easily and edit the MetaData for the Flash Videos that you edit. It is built in Adobe Air.
Here’s the link to the FLV editor build by RichApps.
