Cinelerra

Postby kedaha » 2017-12-31 17:44

I've been taking a look at the GPL'd community version of Cinelerra, "a video editing and compositing software package." I downloaded it from cinelerra.org and found that it works fine in current stable "stretch" simply by running ./cinelerra from the directory it's extracted as when there are no run dependency issues other than installing libpng12-0, available from oldstable. Looks like it can be packaged easily enough, assuming it hasn't been done so already although whether it complies with DFSG I don't know.
Any comments? Does anyone use Cinelerra?

Hi kedaha,

I used to use cinelerra up to last Debian stable release. I had some issues intalling it so I gave up ... Now I'm using other programs to make my video editions, but I really would like to give it another try if as you say works fine. Any howto that you could advice me for installing in Debian Stretch?

Many thanks stevepusser for the link, which I hadn't come across; much better than than using the unofficial deb.multimedia repository. It answers marcetm's question too. Cinelerra looks suitable for packaging in Debian; by the looks of it, it meets the guidelines.
