I`m hear some old openSUSE releases has program called “Main Actor” included… This program was removed now? This is some Non-Linear video-editing software… Like Adobe Premiere. Some peoples say me many good words about it, and they say about “Main Actor is included in openSUSE” - this is a wrong information ?
Oh sorry, i found about it…
Help Free Mainactor Source Code - openSUSE Forums
Main Actor project is discontinued and authors has a no plans about continue anymore.
…One more good program has left in the past…
Indeed. There are other NLE for openSUSE. Cinelerra is purported to be very capable, if one can work thru the user interface. Cinelerra’s interface makes gimp’s user interface look positively friendly. I long since gave up on Cinelerra.
I use kdelive myself. Plus kdenlive appears to be ahead ( ? ) of the other Linux NLE in handling AVCHD camcorder format.
Some openSUSE NLE information:
Video editing - openSUSE
Cinellerra is look cool, but has no support for animated image sequences loading (i mean - simple loading trough “add clip” menu)… For loading image sequence, i must first create some *.xml script file in sequence directory, then i can load stills. This some problem for me, because i work with sequences every day (and not day sometimes) and this feature is a very needed. Cinelerra has a hard interface. (but many cool features. like farm rendering, and of course - it free )
The last release of Kdenlive - is look nice (instead of most early releases), but not have a extended support of animation sequences… I found today some feature in Kdenlive, named as “Project” → “Add Slideshow Clip”. This work as secuences reading module, but i can use only 4 image formats:
No support for TGA, TIF, and OpenEXR formats, but this formats is the most frequently used in CG-post production… For using Kdenlive, i must convert all stills first…
I register on Kdenlive site, and i think, i try to send feature request about this.
… Or i try to write this (i have some C programming skills. the most problem - is time lack )
I tend to use stills2dv (especially if I wish to pan a still image). Then I import it into kdenlive. stills2dv home page
oldcpu - thanks! i need to try it
Here are some examples (not done by me) of what can be done with stills2dv:
this useful program for some cases, thanks for examples!
I find in this day and age of the 14MPixel camera, one can use it to create a video that will zoom in (or zoom out) of a single pix, and can look quite good if the pix quality was good.
Now in my case, I only have an older 6 Mpixel camera , … but even with that, I can create zooming effects. Sometimes I will stitch a few to a dozen or more images to together, to create a panorama (with other software) and then use stills2dv to pan across the panorama image, much like a camcorder would pan.
