Phoronix: Cinelerra 4.5 Is Silently Available For Video Editing
Cinelerra, one of the popular open-source video editors and compositors for Linux, hadn't seen an official update since July of 2012 but pushed this week was a source package for their next major release...
10/31/13 - Cinelerra 4.5 Speed curves mainly for video & in degraded quality for audio. Some control over whether automation follows edits. Ability to transfer keyframes between audio and video tracks. Motion temporaries are stored in /tmp/m and /tmp/r files. Time Avg clears the accumulator on keyframes.
Unfortunately Cinelerra never really worked for me. I tried it quite a few times over the past few years, but each time I tried, it was constantly crashing.
I also tried OpenShot and KDEnlive but OpenShot was too basic and KDEnlive crashed quite often. I'm now using Blender for video editing. It's not a perfect replacement for a real video editing tool, but it gets the job done. Besides it has a great compositor and thanks to the 3D part, you can even do VFX.
Anyone tried Lightworks yet? Might have a look at that one for my editing needs.
