Cinelerra GG Infinity is a free and open source video editing software for Linux. It handles rendering, compositing, motion tracking, video editing and much more. It is a rolling release, every month, and therefore the additional name Infinity. If you want to get started right away, click here.
What features does Cinelerra have?
Here you see a small part of the extensive features. Cinelerra GG Infinity is an 8k editor, supports LV2 like the audio mastering software Calf Studio Gear and works with multiple cameras. It supports proxies and has a text editor for creating titles and texts for your videos. Here you will find a more extensive feature list.
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.
The Blender 2.80 – 3D Renderer with a clear user interface
The Blender 2.80 offers useful functions like shaders for fire, smoke and hair as well as real-time rendering. The most striking new feature of Blender 3D is the new user interface; both the introduction and the daily work become more efficient with a lot of icons and interactive tools. The internal renderer is replaced by the new Blender Eevee, a real-time render engine. The limitations known from the past are now a thing of the past. And the performance has also improved significantly. The Blender 2.80 is also compatible with several other 3D programs. From the name you might think it is only a small new version, but version 2.80 features it.
Interactive and left-click selection-equipped interface
If you have ever worked with Blender versions older than the current version 2.80, the new interface design will probably be the most striking change. Previously, the focus was on text and key combinations. The user interface of the new version now uses widgets and icons. These are interactive tools that enable direct work on an object. It represents the best compromise between ease of use and efficiency. Working with the fast shortcuts is not replaced by the widgets, yet it complements the fast workflow and saves clicks and keyboard usage.
Some keyboard shortcuts have been changed from the previous version. However, you can use a keymap to largely restore the keyboard shortcut of the previous version. Another keymap also exists. In this case, the keyboard shortcuts are based on other programs, which is why it is also called Industry Standard.
With the new version, you can finally select objects in the standard keymap with the left mouse button. However, you can still select objects with the right mouse button. The right-click selection of objects is still supported and further developed.
The new version is also called The Workflow Release due to the new user interface, which is internally oriented to workflow processes. Care was taken to ensure that the workflows are similar across programs and have established themselves in computer graphics. In addition, the interface can be individually adapted to the user’s workflow.
The new version now offers templates and workspaces. The workspaces are implemented in the tab in the header. These were designed according to a typical 3D pipeline such as: UV editing, modeling, shading, etc. The templates have even more in-depth configurations. If you create a new file, you can use templates to hide parts of the user interface that are not needed. This is how suitable, for example, the template 2D animation for those who only want to animate or draw in two dimensions. The third dimension features are not displayed, so the interface is clearer.
Increased user-friendliness due to substructure
This new operating concept was realized through substructure concepts, which are called Collections and contain an infinite number of levels. The new version relies on OpenGL from version 3.3. Therefore also higher hardware requirements have to be fulfilled. Generally speaking, Blender should work well with five-year-old medium-performance hardware.
The video editing software Cinelerra-GG Infinity is a good addition to Blender 3D. Here you can downloadCinelerra-GG .
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.
