LiVES -A non-linear video editor for Linux
LiVES is a Video Editing System. It is designed to be simple to use, yet powerful. It is small in size, yet it has many advanced features.
LiVES mixes realtime video performance and non-linear editing in one professional quality application. It will let you start editing and making video right away, without having to worry about formats, frame sizes, or framerates. It is a very flexible tool which is used by both professional VJ’s and video editors – mix and switch clips from the keyboard, use dozens of realtime effects, trim and edit your clips in the clip editor, and bring them together using the multitrack timeline. You can even record your performance in real time, and then edit it further or render it straight away.
For the more technically minded, the application is frame and sample accurate, and it can be controlled remotely or scripted for use as a video server. And it supports all of the latest free standards.
- Frame and sample accurate editing
- Edit video in realtime or non-realtime
- Works with almost any type of video
- Fully extendable through plugins
- Can be controlled via keyboard, joystick, MIDI or remote network
- Integration with pulse audio and jack audio
- Dozens of effects, both rendered and realtime
- Instant previews
- Unlmited video and audio tracks in multitrack mode
The features list on the LiVES Web site states that the program scales well to high-end and low-end hardware, but it doesn’t indicate a lower boundary. Frankly I wouldn’t want to try serious amounts of editing without a 2 GHz CPU or better. A large fast hard-disk is needed, as is a fast video subsystem. If you have a working FireWire connection and the right driver a DV/HDV-capable camcorder is a nice option. LiVES will import video from such cameras, but alas, the Web site gives no particular recommendations for compatible hardware.
