Cinelerra-GG is supported by members of the community and the current programmers. Support can be obtained by sending email to cin [@] For ongoing support, please subscribe to the mailing list as a member so that you have easy access to current issues. To subscribe, click here. This mailing list is archived for future reference so that it can be followed later via .

Support from the community is ongoing with minimal requirements for providing patches, bug fixes, modifications, or coding help from anywhere in keeping with the single solution philosophy. Testing by active members of the community early on in the cycle generally results in the ‘end of the month’ builds being quite stable. Since many features are derived from ffmpeg, the ffmpeg documentation and forums are also quite helpful.

Since our members come from all over the world, the language of communication is English. If you need some help and your English isn’t so good, we recommend using the DeepL translator. Many of our users get very good results with this translator and can communicate well with us even though they hardly speak English.
