Cinelerra HV & CV

 The most advanced Linux-based real-time video production system in the world.

We are focused on combining the Artistic and Development components of Cinelerra into a unified project to create a streamlined production process that will interact effectively with multiple distributions and result in a professional caliber media editing and special effects system.  Cinelerra, created by Adam Williams and released annually from Heroine Virtual for over a decade and the CV version from dozens of very talented artists and developers has finally been unified into one unified distribution by the team at Cinelerra.Org. Now, all of the features of both releases have been combined into one.  Cinelerra.Org has updated CV to work with the 4.6 version first released in the fall of 2014 and all of the effects and features have been combined as one for the first time ever.

We are representing the media generation who believes they should always have access to capable and effective free media production software in order to pursue their artistic and technological interests. Cinelerra is designed by an artists for artists and it not a science project nor a museum piece, it is a active growing software application that has been freely downloaded for over ten years by artists all over the world.

Cinelerra has always been free and will remain so as we work closely with the traditional technical design and manufacturing companies and broadcast and media production companies along with Independent Artists and Technologists to bring new capabilities and increased functionality.  We know Cinelerra is not perfect, but, it is a platform we can build upon together to create our professional and our independent studios.  Please contact us or sign up to our newsletter so that we can make you part of the future of Cinelerra and assist you in your studio and your production design goals.

We are initially stabilizing Cinelerra on both Ubuntu and CentOS which both bring developmental and performance capabilities that increase reliability and make it easier for the Artists to customize to their studio requirements. Our team of directors, from the Founder of Cinelerra to our other professional management directors share the same vision which will benefit the artist and also the curious technology developer. Our shared vision especially supports the artist who seeks to create and contribute but does not have the resources to purchase the most advanced systems currently on the market. 

The Media Generation Takes Total Studio Control.


Take Control Together.
