What is Cinelerra GG Infinity?
Cinelerra GG is a free video editing software that lets you edit your videos and make them look like a movie with transitions, effects and text. You can use it to cut out unsightly parts of your video, rearrange sequences, add beautiful transitions, improve visual detail or audio quality, and add music. Render your new video project directly with YouTube presets. Cinelerra GG Infinity is designed for professionals, but it’s just as good for beginners as it is for getting the most out of their videos.
Free video editing software
Cinelerra GG Infinity is a resource-saving free video editing software for Linux. It is characterized by extensive possibilities to modify video and audio media. Through the integration of the software package FFmpeg, hundreds of extensions and codecs therefore are available. It is certainly not comparable with the functionality of the most important commercial video editing software in the field of video postproduction, but it is more than sufficient for common user. It is free and open source. Together with many filmmakers, developers and supporters we pursue a continuous development, hence the additional name Infinity, for a monthly rolling release.
It is with dismay and sadness that I have to announce this devastating news that our highly esteemed developer W.P. Morrow aka Good Guy died in a traffic accident last Monday at the age of 66. Bill, as he also called in private, was as so often in his free time, out for sports riding his bicycle when he was hit by a truck. He was taken to hospital, but unfortunately he succumbed to his severe injuries.
This news is shocking and makes me speechless, although I find it extremely difficult to find words due to my sadness, I would like to remember him at this point.
A look back shows that, together with Phyllis, he has pushed this project forward with great passion, dedication and commitment. His ingenuity and creative solutions were always an enrichment for this project. He was never too comfortable to tackle even small problems and improvements to make the life of the users easier. You could tell that he enjoyed programming a lot. He enjoyed improving Cinelerra-GG and interacting with the community. He has acted selflessly and for the good of all, and through his commitment to free and open software, he has made this world a bit freer and better.
The gap he leaves behind is huge and filling it will be hard.
Thanks for everything dear Bill. It was a great honor and pleasure to work with you. You will be remembered. We will miss you. Rest in peace.
I express my condolences to Phyllis, his family and friends.
P.S.: Phyllis has expressed the wish to resume work on the project at a later date, currently she needs some time off, and to participate in the documentation and correspondence as usual. I will continue to support this project as before. The monthly releases cannot be offered in the same way at the moment. Minor changes and improvements will take place from time to time. We are open for new developers and hope for your support.
ShuttlePro v2 & ShuttleXpress
Many video editing experts prefer to work with the appropriate video editing control devices to increase workflow. In response to user demand, we have integrated the Jog Wheels ShuttlePROv2 and ShuttleXpress into Cinelerra-GG to facilitate intuitive operation. More detailed information can be found in the User Manual.
Is Cinelerra GG Infinity also available for other operating systems?
Cinelerra GG Infinity is available for GNU/Linux and FreeBSD. Due to the lack of professional video editing applications for Linux, Cinelerra was developed for Linux. Cinelerra GG therefore serves as a replacement and for this reason there is no Windows or Mac version. We support up to nine different distributions. Click here to go to the download overview page.
