Unleash the 50,000 watt flamethrower of content creation in your UNIX
box. Cinelerra for Ubuntu does primarily 3 things: capturing, composting, and
editing audio and video with sample level accuracy. It is a movie studio
in a box. Cinelerra supports OpenGL shaders on NVidia graphics cards. The video
crunching power that was once exclusively the domain of SGI
minicomputers is now yours. Cinelerra does not support every codec ever invented, but it does
support the most common WMV and FLV derivatives well enough to transcode
them into a format suitable for editing.
