Introducing PiTiVi (version 0.13.4)

Oct 29, 2010, 15:03 (0 Talkback[s])

"PiTiVi isn't just what appeared in my alphabet soup last weekend, it's also the name of a video editor for Linux systems. The first time I stumbled across PiTiVi (pronounced PeeTeeVee) was when I was recently trying out the Trisquel distribution and found the application pre-installed. The program has an unusually simple layout for a video editor and I was happy to discover that PiTiVi has a very small learning curve. I quickly became hooked on shuffling clips around and dropping segments of video on the virtual cutting room floor.

"The PiTiVi project, which sprung from the work of Edward Hervey, Alessandro Decina, Brandon Lewis and a handful of other volunteers, is free software released under the Lesser General Public License. According to the project's website work is rapid and on-going. The application is written in the Python programming language and relies on GStreamer for importing and processing multimedia files.

"The video editor is available in the repositories of the Debian family of distributions, Fedora, Gentoo and FreeBSD. For people on other distros, there are source packages available from the PiTiVi web site. I installed the application via Synaptic on my Mint box and, when I tried to run the program, ran into a dependency problem."
