LiVES video editor


Article from Issue 79/2007

Linux users who edit videos on their computers have so far been restricted to the fairly simplistic Kino program and the functional monster Cinelerra. LiVES steps up to fill the gap.

Thanks to the abundant sunshine, this year’s winter break was more a time for strolling in the park than for skiing. Of course Linux users always have something to do on a rainy day, and one of my favorites is reliving
memories with a free (as in beer and freedom) video-editing tool. If you think Kino is too spartan and Cinelerra is too overloaded, LiVES (LiVES is a Video Editing System) is an interesting alternative.
