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.
Resource-saving and simple
Cinelerra GG Infinity is a resource-saving 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.

Usage of the graphics board GPU in certain cases will result in decode speed up for playback. To make this option available, you will need to install your Operating System’s libva-dev and libvdpau-dev (or libva and libvdpau). Without these libraries installed, Cin will not start and you will see a message that looks something like:
error while loading shared libraries: libva.so.1 cannot …
A description of how to take possible advantage of this speed up is temporarily in GPU_potential_speedup.pdf in the download area.
- 15 of the native plugins now have a Clear button by the slider bar for much better control, courtesy a user contributor. This includes Brightness, Color Balance, Hue Saturation, Sharpen, and others as listed in the Release Notes.
- The Tracer plugin is new and allows for tracing around an object using an outline. This is very useful to more exactly mask out a logo, for example. A short description is in Tracer_plugin.pdf temporarily in the download area.
- More than 30 small issues and bugs have been addressed in this latest release. That is more than usual for 1 month.
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.
