[News] New Version of FFmpeg, Introduction to Kino

Hash: SHA1

An Interview With The Developers Of FFmpeg

,----[ Quote ]
| Earlier this week the FFmpeg project reached version 0.5, which was quite 
| significant considering no new FFmpeg release was made available in years. 
| This release contained a plethora of new encoders and decoders, support for 
| VDPAU, a variety of bug-fixes, and many other improvements. What is next for 
| FFmpeg? When will we see proper Blu-ray support? Will there be a 1.0 release 
| in the foreseeable future? To answer these questions plus others, I spoke 
| with three of the main FFmpeg developers about this very popular -- and 
| important -- open-source multimedia project.       


Video Editing Made Easy with Kino!

,----[ Quote ]
| There are lots of good tools in the Free Open Source Software world for 
| capturing and editing video, but common to making almost any movie is a basic 
| understanding of the steps to building a good story using a storyboard 
| editor. This article will help you take the very first step toward creating a 
| movie by using the very simple storyboard video editing program called Kino 
| to create a story.     



Top 10 Free Video Editors for Ubuntu Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| I earlier wrote about  Top 5 BitTorrent Clients for Ubuntu Linux, 7 Awesome
| 3D Graphic Design Applications for Linux and 23 Free Ubuntu Linux Login
| Screens. Today I’m going to write about some of the best Video editing tools
| for Ubuntu Linux because Linux itself doesn’t offer any default or built-in
| video editor application but there are tens of third party software for Linux
| you can use to add effects to your videos and do a lot more.

| Well, yes indeed. Step forward Object Matrix and its MatrixStore. It's a
| clusterable set of nodes, three at a minimum, with each node having up to
| 24TB of SATA disk storage (1TB drives) and Linux x86 server running the
| MatrixStore software. The capacity is no problem for now as a 50x4TB node
| setup has been tested and the company says 24TB nodes would work just as
| well, meaning a 1.2PB cluster is feasible.
| Object Matrix is primarily a software company and makes its technology
| available, in the UK only at present, as an integrated hardware and software
| product with Linux cluster nodes or as software only for Mac OS nodes.


7 Free Open Source Video Editors For Linux

| Avidemux is a free video editor used mainly for simple cutting, filtering and
| encoding tasks. It is often dubbed as the VirtualDub for Linux as it can do
| many things that VirtualDub can do. It supports many files types, including
| avi, DVD compatible mpeg files, mp4, asf and even the not-so-common ogm and
| matroska format.
| Some of the useful features of Avidemux include a simple WYSIWYG interface,
| easy conversion from one format to another, plenty of filtering effects and a
| built-in subtitles processing capabilities.


KDE 4 Video Editor Kdenlive Released

,----[ Quote ]
| The promising nonlinear video editor Kdenlive has made its first non beta for
| KDE 4, version 0.7 is on us. This closes another gap of the free desktop
| world: a usable open source video editor. Kdenlive has the potential to
| become the Amarok or K3b of video editors, offering comfort and elegance so
| far not available in alternative programs. The feature set looks amazingly
| complete and far exceeds the KDE 3 version already. Check the release
| announcement.


Video Editing in Linux: Kino v Open Movie v KdenLive

,----[ Quote ]
| Out of the 3 programs previewed, I liked Kdenlive the best, but not having
| the Title show up was a real bummer. Kdenlive could eventually become my
| editor of choice by the time it gets to 1.0 status. The trick is going to be
| to keep the development moving and thus keep my interest alive. This type of
| progression is what has helped Linux reach critical mass as desktop choice.

| At first, studios had no choice but to develop Linux applications in house.
| The film industry has millions of lines of Linux code, both desktop
| applications and server pipelines. Studio Linux programmers write code in
| C++, Python, Perl, and Java. What does all this secret proprietary Linux code
| do? And, why do they do parallel programming with grid computing? How does
| the film industry use renderfarms with thousands of CPUs?

| development."

| developer of Y-Film. The tool set runs on x86 Linux, Power Linux and Mac OS
