I use a Dazzle Hollywood DV Bridge (firewire) to capture my Xbox 360 gameplay using Kdenlive. I record commentaries using Audacity and lay the audio over the video. Here's 1 I did recently where I stretched the 720x480p source to fill 1280x720, it turned out ok but I really want to purchase either a Black Magic Intensity Pro or an HD PVR (both work in linux I've read). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8-QXpVowXk
I am not a very experienced video editor but I decided to try KdenLive and it is suprissing good, I really didnt expected so much from a opensource project.
Anyway I did a video remix about austerity in the south Europe, I did some rookie mistakes and given the created clips in DVD formats I ended up not being able to render at HD resolutions without redoing the clips, to much work, for now. On the plus side I dont think that my CPU could handle it, but it surpassed by far what I did on Windows :D

Summary: In this article you can find the best method to edit videos in Apple Aperture 3 on Mac, just learn how to convert AVCHD/MTS/MKV/AVI/MXF to MOV for Apple Aperture 3.
Aperture is a professional photography application that lets you refine images, showcase your photography, and manage massive photo libraries. Aperture gives your photography the professional treatment it deserves, with more sophisticated tools to perfect your images and powerful ways to browse and choose your best shots. And now that Aperture is optimized for the MacBook Pro with Retina display, it's a whole new way to see everything.
A visual effect created with Kdenlive created using the screen transition. Not perfect (aliased edges under the flames, and the sparks are cheesy. The flashes and flames have no effect on ambient light or reflections, and some smoke wouldn't have hurt) but I'm proud of it for 1 hour's work (including hunting own the images and sounds). Used it to convince some students they didn't actually need to set a toaster on fire for their final year film.
I Think it shows some of the things can be done with Kdenlive. I tried this effect on Avid MC5 and failed to get anything as good.
And yes - I did notice the toaster's not plugged in in the original image.

The Sony NEX-VG900 camcorder is the first Handycam camcorder with a 35mm sensor for high-quality HD video with a truly professional look, which exploits the artistic potential of interchangeable lenses. More than the new 35mm sensor, the Sony NEX-VG900 camcorder also offers you creative control to deliver image and videos the way you envision it, even in dimly-lit environments. The NEX-VG900 captures gorgeous high quality video in 1080 Full HD in 24p, 60p and 60i, thus astounding film-like results can be achieved easily. However, users often stumped on importing issues when loading Sony NEX-VG900 AVCHD footage into Final Cut Pro 6/7/X for post-production on Mac Mountain Lion 10.8.
