Kino is a non-linear DV editor for GNU/Linux.






Kino is a non-linear DV editor for GNU/Linux. It features excellent integration with IEEE-1394 for capture, VTR control, and recording back to the camera. Kino captures video to disk in Raw DV and AVI format, in both type-1 DV and type-2 DV (separate audio stream) encodings.

You can load multiple video clips, cut and paste portions of video/audio, and save it to an edit decision list (SMIL XML format). Most edit and navigation commands are mapped to equivalent vi key commands.

Also, Kino can export the composite movie in a number of formats: DV over IEEE 1394, Raw DV, DV AVI, still frames, WAV, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4. Still frame import and export uses gdk-pixbuf, which has support for BMG, GIF, JPEG, PNG, PPM, SVG, Targa, TIFF, and XPM. MP3 requires lame. Ogg Vorbis requires oggenc. MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 require mjpegtools or ffmpeg. MPEG-4 requires ffmpeg.

The current release introduces an experimental fx module, which is accessed from the FX tab in the main window. It provides some basic audio and video fx such as importing, filters and transitions for audio and video. It also provides some basic plug-in functionality to allow third party extension.

Currently, Kino does not support other video file formats or encodings. It does not support multiple layers or tracks of video and audio. We plan to implement most of these features, but first we chose to focus on the basics of IEEE-1394, video, audio, and file input and output. We place a lot of emphasis on quality, stability, performance, and workflow.
