[This is part of a series by our guest blogger Tre Scranton covering video creation on the Librem Mini.]
Video content is one of the most popular forms of media for communication on and off the internet. Many creatives spend hundreds, if not thousands – to obtain licensed use to hardware and software as a means to create quality video that can stand on it’s own next to Hollywood-level productions. Fortunately, Purism, a company that respects your digital rights and privacy – has created a free software ecosystem to help restore ownership and control to the hands of the user. With PureOS, you can download KDenLive – an free software video editor – from the PureOS Store and create high-quality video using tools that rival more expensive editors like Adobe Premiere or Final Cut Pro.
The Librem Mini, a small but powerful desktop PC, is perfect for processor intensive tasks like video editing and rendering. Packing an Intel Core i7-8565U (Whiskey Lake) CPU with 4 core and 8 threads with clock speeds at up to 4.9 GHZ and up to 64GB of RAM, it’s capable of being the centerpiece of any film studio. To demonstrate the capabilities of content creation on a Librem Mini, check out the video below:
