Blender is designed as a Wire Frame Animator but, yea -- video editing can be done.
For those using Windows or MAC, unless an MPEG-2 Editor is available - things are going to look sloppy!
Simple Cut & Paste Editing works best and High End Blending/Transitions are as out of date as the 386 DX 20 processors that they were developed on in the 1900's.
Linux has a rather large following and, for the most part, has everything GNU Free to the public.
Video Editing is not very high on the Linux Users set of priorities and as such, is very slow to comply with any form of Video Editing Standards. The good new is, almost anything that was written for Linux can be transposed into MAC or Windows ( unless your not a programmer! )
The truth about Royalty Free Editing on any platform is: "until a set of standards can be Set In Stone, do not expect anything to Valid for very long!" Including Picture size!
