Resource-saving and simple
Cinelerra GG Infinity is a resource-saving nonlinear editor (NLE) for Linux. It is characterized by extensive possibilities to edit or change video and audio media. Through the integration of FFmpeg, hundreds of plugins and codecs are available. It is certainly not comparable with the functionality of the major commercial solutions in the field of video post production, but it is more than sufficient for semi-professional use and is free and open source. Together with many filmmakers, developers and supporters we pursue a continuous further development, hence the additional name Infinity, for a monthly rolling release.
There’s news from the codec world.
The promising new codec named AV1 has been released in version 0.1. This new version promises much better processing speeds. The AV1 is mainly based on VP9 and additions from Daala, Thor and VP10. Compared to H.264 and H.265, this codec compresses much more, the files are about half the size, with the same picture quality.
The AV1 codec development is being pushed forward by Mozilla, Google, Cisco, Amazon, Netflix, AMD, ARM, Intel and Nvidia under the umbrella of the company AOMedia to replace the expensive and licensed codec’s h.264 and h.265.
