Video editing for Linux growing up?

Recommended Posts

When you wanted to edit video running Linux your choises used to be pretty limited. There were decent non linear editors for DV (Kino, Kdenlive) but if it was any other format there never was a program that did exactly what you wanted. Mainactor did (and does) cost money, Avidemux was always complaining about missing keyframes and GOPchop had so little feutures you could hardly do anything with it. There was one program, Cinelerra, that promised to do anything you wanted but it had one serious flaw: it did always seg fault on you.

 

Fast forward to the present and things have changed. No, Mainactor is still expensive, Kino still does only DV and GOPchop is a pain to build but Cinelerra is finally stable (cinelerra-1.2.2-1.i386.rpm)! My needs are pretty basic. I want to remove the occasional commercial, perhaps add a title and clean up the source. Cinelerra does all that and much more. It's website says it's not for consumer use but that is not true: it's perfect for my use.

 

Go give it a try.

Will do just that.

 

I have tried using Cinelerra before... even when it was still called Broadcast 2000 (I believe) and never could accomplish anything with it. Time to give it another try... thanx

I tried using cinelerra for a school assignment, I go no where and rebooted and did it in pinnacle studio in windows.

Hi Devries,

I had a quick look at the Cinelerra site, they recommend:

 

Dual 2.4Ghz Opteron

4GB RAM.

200 GB storage for movie files.

Gigabit ethernet

 

This seems like one big machine... are you running it on something similar, or can it run on less? (I understand that Kino will run on far less).
