How to install cinelerra cv

Postby Angtagapagligt on Mon Oct 03, 2011 1:42 pm

Hello,

the installation of Cinelerra seems to be confusing to new Linux (Mint) users. Many people want to use Cinelerra because it's very powerful and is nearly the only PROFESSIONAL video editing software. A little notice: For professional video editing you should use a combination of for example Kino and Cinelerra. That's why I'll explain how you can install Kino, too.

What we do here is installing the Cinelerra community version (CV) http://cinelerra.org/. There are no real difference to the "normal" version for the end-user. The CV-team just made it easier to setup the software.


1. Adding the PPA repository to Linux Mint

Adding a PPA repository to Linux Mint means that you expand the synaptic software pool from your OS. In our case we give Linux Mint the possibility to install cinelerra. We have to tell the OS where he can find the needed files.
Adding the PPA goes like this:

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cinelerra-ppa/ppa


Now we have to update the software sources which can be handled by the OS:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update



2. Installing Cinelerra

Now Linux Mint knows where it can find the Cinelerra package to install the software. So we just have to do the common command:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install cinelerra


Now it gets installed automaticly like every other software from the synaptic does.


3. Installing Kino

As I said before you also have to install Kino to do professional video editing. That's why you have to run:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install kino


Kino is also a video editing program. But it's more for common use. But you can add text boxes and such things which you couldn't do so easily in Cinelerra. So use Cinelerra for the final cut and for the rest take Kino.

That's it.

Know you should have two buttons in your menu in the categorie "multimedia".
Have fun!

Thanks Angtagapagligt!

Just a question: why doesn't it show up on Synaptic?

Cause the developer doesn't provide it :)

Edit:

He wrote that he provide a RPM (for "Red Hat"-Systems like Fedora (www.fedoraproject.org)). Maybe he doesn't like Debian that much ... :)
