CINELERRA 

The Most Widely-Used media production editing software in the world.

Over 1 Million Downloads since 2003.

Since the year 2002, any and all downloads of any version of Cinelerra downloaded from anywhere on the Internet originate from the original and copyrighted work of Adam Williams of Heroine Virtual and Cinelerra.Org.  Changes to the original work have occurred many times since 2006 by many developers in professional film studios, including Warner Bros., Sony Imageworks, and also fine work with the fine worldwide volunteer community team. Adam Williams of Heroine Virtual continues to maintain and develop the original code base every year since 2002, with no breaks, and continues to do so. There are substantial developments underway for Cinelerra coming soon over the next weeks, months, and years ahead.

Live Support M-F from 12:00 - 4:00 PDT

Download Cinelerra to a directory and unpack it with this command ...  tar -xJf xxxxxxx.txz and then run ./Cinelerra from that directory and Cinelerra opens up for you. Set your audio driver to ALSA, set your Performance Preferences by checking trap sigSEGV & trap sigINT  and then have fun.

These releases represent new modifications to the 4.6 release, the most up-to-date version of Cinelerra. For all complaints or bugs about Cinelerra 4.6 from the Cinelerra.Org website,  please send your "tmp/cinelerra_xxxx.dmp" file directly to us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  If you are having trouble with playback, make sure you reset the sound driver to ALSA.  This will help performance.

We are currently working directly from the current HV code base everyday and happy to respond. Currently, we are merging the most popular and popular items from the technically older community version (cv) and that release should be online within the next 4-6 weeks.  Once that occurs, all of the features seen from that version will be added to the more technically modern 4.6 version with modifications from Heroine Warrior.

We are responding to support questions live M-F for 5 hours per day --  12:00 - 5:00 PM PDT.  We are also available for phone consultations.
