The new emerging NLE for GNU/Linux


Project objectives

To create, as a community, a non-linear video editing and compositing FLOSS 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 project to build a Non-Linear Video Editing (NLE) application for GNU/Linux.

Its primary focus is professional editing, quality, usability and flexibility. The application is still in a pre-alpha state and is not yet ready for normal use.
