For video editing, you might want to have a look at http://www.jahshaka.com/ Though this is not available in the ports yet I think. As others have said Linux/FreeBSD is usually using the same software. Most importantly you should compare both FreeBSD an Linux based on software and hardware support that you need for video editing. Better questions would be: Does FreeBSD support DV/Firewire for camcorders? Does FreeBSD support video capture cards, which ones? (this is important, a lot of high end cards don't have drivers for Linux/FreeBSD) Is software available on FreeBSD to do such and such? -- "Optimized, readable, on time; Pick any two."
