Hi guys,

I'm on Gentoo and I'm looking for non-distro specific build instructions or just a distro agnostic build of Cinelerra GG Infinity.

Thx guys

The current build procedures as documented in section 2.1 of the manual at:

   https://www.cinelerra-gg.org/download/CinelerraGG_manual.pdf

are used to create about 32 binary files on 5 different distro-types so they are somewhat generic + there is a specific bsd build script.

However, in the past there have been a couple of people who have built Cinelerra for Gentoo and the above mentioned scripts need adjustment to account for the uniqueness of Gentoo systems.   My suggestion is to follow the manual instructions and email the log with the build errors that is at /{build_path|/cinelerra5/cinelerra-5.1/log to [email protected]

With any luck other users who compile for Gentoo will see this email and be of better assistance or see the following (also in the pdf manual) which I do not currently know if is still available:

Hi

No I did not, I didn't try the ebuild because I'm experimenting with Olive.

So you got it running? How is the performance?

The main problem with all open source video editors in Linux that I tried is the abysmal performance, especially with playing the edited video in preview/editor mode + (no hardware acceleration not even multithread support). Same for the rendering. There is a multithread render scrypt for Blender which works very well, but editing is a mess.

This problem got kinda solved with Olive, I didn't do any big projects with it yet so don't take my word for it.

Since I couldn't find out how it is with Cinelerra GG I figured it's not worth my time even trying to look further into it (no offense). Maybe I'll install it on an Ubuntu machine just to try it out. I didn't have the time yet...

Olive is already very well suited for most video editing tasks and due to its contemporary usability it will occupy a prominent position in this area as open source software.
