Cinelerra is a video editing and compositing software package. It is designed for the Linux operating system. Its original version is produced by Heroine Virtual, there are three branches produced by the open source community. It is free software distributed under the GNU General Public License. Cinelerra also includes a video compositing engine, allowing the user to perform advanced compositing operations such as keying and mattes.
Cinelerra was first released August 1, 2002, and was based in part on Broadcast 2000, which was withdrawn by Heroine Virtual in September 2001.[better source needed] Cinelerra became the first 64-Bit media production application when it was re-written to conform to the AMD Opteron in June 2003 and was presented at SIGGRAPH 2004 in San Diego. This version was subsequently released by Adam Williams of Heroine Warrior, the principal developer of the original Cinelerra. Since then, there have been many releases, the latest the December 2018 Cinelerra-GG Infinity version. For an overview of releases, see the History of Cinelerra section.
Cinelerra has a wide range of features including support for high-fidelity audio and video: it processes audio using 64 bits of precision and can work in both RGBA and YUVA color spaces, using floating-point and 16-bit integer representations, respectively. It is resolution and frame rate-independent, meaning that it can support video of any speed and size.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used Cinelerra and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
