Cinelerra has been freely download over a million times since 2002 and is used daily by thousands of artists everyday in well over 50 countries.


At Cinelerra, we are standardizing the application and distributions, dramatically increasing language support, while organizing new Artists and Technologists to lead the effort to make Cinelerra a professional standard.  We have a number of new goals for Cinelerra we will be implementing over the next 3 years.


Cinelerra was developed in Silicon Valley and Hollywood by Adam Williams of Heroine Virtual.  Eventually, valued assistance from highly talented Artists and Technologists from around the world helped Cinelerra become a better application.


We want it and it benefits the artists and the people all over the world.

Trade Shows

We have increased our community and industry outreach with visits to trade shows and user sites.

We were at NAB in April in Las Vegas and we have plans to be at SIGGRAPH and IBC later this year in Amsterdam.

Please follow these links to learn more about the shows and we hope to visit with you during that time.





Welcome to Cinelerra 2014 –- Volume 1 Issue 9


SIGGRAPH is coming soon and we hope to visit with any locals who plan to be at the show.Our booth at SIGGRAPH 2014 will be Booth 648. We also expect to have a presence in a corporate partner booth, as well. The conference and exhibition is scheduled for August 10 - 14 at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Vancouver, Canada. 

Our outreach plan has been effective and we have many new people interested in Cinelerra and in receiving updates on our new development strategy.

The translation plug-in has worked for many, but, it is not giving fully correct translations.

The outreach  project in Rio de Janiero is still in the formulation stage, but, it will provide both an initial presentation of Cinelerra and other free software with the goal to encourage artists and techies to get involved.  Igor Viera is hosting the event in partnership with representatives of the city of Rio DeJaniero and is is being focused to support youth who need and want to learn about new technologies and seek a network to collaborate.

We hosted several meetings recently to discuss PROJECT 30 with a supportive development company with a goal to fully blend the principal development team and artists and developers within the extended world of Cinelerra.

An exciting new project is evolving in Asia and an announcement for this project will be made in July and will provide exciting opportunities for everyone.

For anyone who considers themselves professional in media systems technologies, focusing on Linux Redhat and CentOS and looking for work within the film industry, please contact us. We do hear about such opportunities primarily in New York and Los Angeles.

We sent out the telecine controller to a techie in Denmark. So, hopefully, there will be something to show for that in the fall or maybe sooner.

If you are a school or University and interested in a partnership, please contact us.
