Free Video Editing Tool - LiVES

LiVES is a Video Editing System. It is designed to be simple to use, yet powerful. It is small in size, yet it has many advanced features.

LiVES mixes real-time video performance and non-linear editing in one professional quality application. It will let you start editing and making video right away, without having to worry about formats, frame sizes, or frame-rates. It is a very flexible tool which is used by both professional VJ's and video editors - mix and switch clips from the keyboard, use dozens of real-time effects, trim and edit your clips in the clip editor, and bring them together using the multitrack timeline. You can even record your performance in real time, and then edit it further or render it straight away.

For the more technically minded, the application is frame and sample accurate, and it can be controlled remotely or scripted for use as a video server. And it supports all of the latest free standards.

LiVES Installation:
Open the terminal and type following command to install LiVES:
sudo apt-get install lives 
On starting  LiVES for the first time (or if the .lives file is not present in the home directory), it will run some basic configuration test and if all goes fine, you should see something like ...

The most common way of importing video and audio material, is via the menu option File > Open file / directory, or by pressing ctrl-o.  If you click on this or press the keys, a file selector will appear, which will allow you to select a file to open (import).

When LiVES is started, it should detect the number of monitors connected, and adjust itself accordingly. In preferences, you can override the default settings. It is possible to choose which monitor to use for the main interface, and for the playback window. You can also set it so that full screen playback will stretch across all monitors (to do so, set the GUI monitor setting to 0).
