The new emerging NLE for GNU/Linux


Project objectives

To create, as a community, a non-linear video editing and compositing FOSS application for Linux/Unix/Posix Operating Systems, suitable for professional and quality oriented work, building on common open source video, sound and GUI toolkits and libraries, providing flexibility and a high degree of configurability and full control of all parameters, but at the same time a smooth workflow which scales well to larger and more complicated editing projects.

Lumiera is a Free/Open Source Non-Linear Video Editing (NLE) application project for GNU/Linux

It was born as a rewrite of the CinelerraCV codebase,
but developed later into an independent project with its own name. The application is still in an pre-alpha state and not usable for normal work.


November 2015

We published the next ┬╗preview release┬ź 0.pre.03
We did a lot of library and platform upgrades recently, which need to be reflected within package definitions and buildsystem. This “release” is relevant for developers only; we still have no user visible changes yet. As usual, we upgraded our Debian packaging and rebuilt the package on various distributions, to spot build problems and verify compatibility…

August 2015

The reference platform for Lumiera has been upgraded to Debian/Jessie. And the Language level has been raised to C++14. As usal, Lumiera core developers will meet at and after the FrOSCon conference.

May 2015

The existing Lumiera user interface has been switched to GTK-3.
Besides some clean-up, this prompted more activities in the area of GUI and workflow recently. Read more in the 2014/15 Spring Coding News…

August 2014

Benny has compiled a small 2014 Summer News Report —  As usual, Lumiera team will meet again at the FrOSCon conference at Bonn/St.Augustin (Germany)

May 2014

the Lumiera core developers will visit the LAC Linux Audio Conference in Karlsruhe/Germany. As we did some years ago at Utrecht, we’ll help again with the Video streaming. And of course we’ll use the opportunity for a in-person developer meeting.

After this conference, Benny Lyons has written the 2014 Spring News Report

April 2014

The Lumiera code base has been switched to C++11. Additionally, we’ll support also compilation with Clang from now on. The transition to C++11 didn’t impose any serious problems, since we’re employing a modern coding style right from start. After the switch, development will benefit especially from the new features rvalue references, auto type inference and constexpr.

August 2013

while preparing for FrOSCon, we collected and merged several documentation contributions. Thanks to Benny Lyons: here is the 2013 Summer News Report

Some images of our meeting and excursion can be seen here…

a bit late…. but here it is: the Winter Coding News.

March 2011

We can now provide binary Debian packages for the first time, allowing you to install a development preview/snapshot without compiling, on Debian based systems (e.g. Ubuntu). But don’t get too excited — you won’t see any new features on the GUI…

September 2010

We have been at FrOSCon 2010 with a booth and a talk on Lumiera. →more…
