Bug#331072: RFP: cinelerra-cv -- non-linear video editor and compositor for Linux
The current git source of Cinelerra CV (community version) is buildable
in Debian Jessie out of the box. Unfortunately, it need the nonfree
libfaac library to build. See
<URL: http://git.cinelerra-cv.org/main_repo.php > for the git source.
I've also tested to get the 4.5 version from Heroine Virtual Ltd. (aka
Cinelerra HV) in Debian, and after replacing the build system and
patching it a bit, I have been able to get it building in both Jessie
and Wheezy. See
<URL: https://github.com/petterreinholdtsen/cinelerra-hv > for the
Given the project history, I suspect the Cinelerra CV version is the
best one to put into Debian, but the Cinelerra HV version might be a
good base too.
If anyone is willing to help out getting Cinelerra into Debian, please
get in touch, or show up on the Cinelerra CV IRC channel (#cinelerra on
irc.freenode.net) or mailing list,
<URL: http://git.cinelerra-cv.org/mailinglists.php >.
There are still several problems with the code base. Duplicate libmpeg3
with patches, "forked" libquicktime, embedded ffmpeg, embedded liblame,
etc, etc. But I suspect we can get fix the issues and get a proper
package into Debian by disabling support for some file formats.
