Thanks, Carl Eugen. What would you recommend for video editing tools that use ffmpeg's libraries?
I admit most of my experience with video editing software has been with commercial GUI projects that are not great for tasks like this.

I guess I could use the blackdetect filter to produce an EDL and run that through a commerical GUI video editor, but...well, what woudl you recomend for using ffmpeg's libraries? That's not something I'm very familiar with.
