Which Linux live distro coming with OpenShot and/or Kdenlive is there and would you suggest me to try? I need to very occasionally use them and I don't want to install them by the moment.

Thanks in advance for your advices.

I think you actually listed the majority of the distros shipping OpenShot + Kdenlive. I'm afraid there might be performance issues on live systems when it comes to video processing and encoding. To overcome these sorts of problem you probably might want to use a well-supported distro with a good drivers database, such as Ubuntu Studio 17.04, which includes both OpenShot and Kdenlive out of the box:

Keep in mind though that right now Ubuntu as a project undergoes serious changes, shifting its focus from the desktop distros to the cloud-based/server-side solutions, which means that Ubuntu Studio might not be the best Linux-based solution for the artists in the future.

    Yeah, I'm aware that I may face performance issues on live systems... especially dealing with video-editing! Anyway I do it rarely, as I told, and I deal with very short videos (less than a minute) for the moment. I accept your as the answer: I tried Ubuntu Studio, it comes with both OpenShot and Kdenlive and I think it is a good solution for me (I'd have been curious to try even Shotcut while I was at it but it's not there... You can't always have it all ;-D ) – danicotra Jul 8 '17 at 20:24

    Can you please give more information about your last words: "Keep in mind though that right now Ubuntu as a project undergoes serious changes, shifting its focus from the desktop distros to the cloud-based/server-side solutions, which means that Ubuntu Studio might not be the best Linux-based solution for the artists in the future."?

  • @danicotra Canonical announced that they decided to close development of Ubuntu phone and Unity and also delegate the desktop development to Ubuntu Gnome team so that Canonical could primarily focus on IoT and server-side solutions. This can possibly lead in stagnation of Ubuntu as a desktop for an average user, at least the road is going to be bumpy for a while, as they will contribute significantly less. – andselisk Jul 9 '17 at 3:54
