KDEnlive provides dual video monitors, a multi-track timeline, clip organization, efficient media ingestion, and a professional-level editing experience. Other features include customizable layout support, compositing, chroma keys, colour correction with a unique and powerful curve (rather than the colour wheel) interface, and plenty of other effects and transitions.

Kdenlive communicates via an XML based protocol to a render engine which handles the actual video data, and can handle a multitude of video and audio codecs.
