Smile Diva - Video Editor for Linux Released!


I've been waiting for this program to be released for a long time, here's hoping people test it and provide feedback to the author(s)!

Diva "is a project to build an easy to use, scalable, open-source video editing software for the Gnome desktop. Our goal is to provide users with a complete and tightly integrated set of tools that can be used to import, edit, enhance and export digital video material. The aim of the project is to chart the unexplored areas of video editing for the open-source platform." "Diva is written in mono on the top of the gstreamer multimedia library. It currently runs only on Linux."

So, if I understand this properly, this is basically Kino, but for Gnome?
That sounds like a good idea to me. KDE apps always feel slower to me, and you don't want to be using a slow video editor. I've only used Kino once or twice, as I don't do a lot of video-editing. But, soon as I get a chance to use Diva, I will.

How does this stack up against Cinelerra ?

Cinelerra is buggy as hell
and way to complicated for your everyday home video.

i'd rather boot into windows than use that.

Diva looks like a really promissing product judging the video's on their website.
It looks rather like apple's I-movie.

Hello,

It seems interesting . The only thing I do not like too much is mono...

Best wishes,
Michael

LOL!

Kino is a Gnome app, silly! Not everything with a K is a KDE app, although there certainly is a tendency. Check the site (kinodv.org) or the wikipedia entry for Kino, they'll both tell you that it's a GTK+ app (the "G" is for Gnome).

I'm not sure of the history of the Kino project, but the word means "cinema" in German (clearly also shares the same root, "cine").

But way to show a bias ;-)

Myself I have had good experiences with kino with simple home video editing, except for occasional audio distortions associated with applying transitions. That and unpredictable crashing, so one needs to save early and often. Hmmm, maybe it hasn't been that good an experience, but I still use it! And yes, I use it in GNOME.

Last I heard, no, from source only. It's still an early alpha, correct?

Wow, I can't believe I thought it was a KDE app. Just looking at it, it's so obviously GTK+. Thank you for correcting me.
However, while it is a GTK+ app, it's not a Gnome app. It doesn't depend on any Gnome libraries (at least, that's what rpm tells me).

Nope, sorry. The G is for GIMP. GTK is the Gimp Toolkit. It was originally created specifically to be used by GIMP. (And the G in GIMP stands for GNU, and the G in GNU stands for GNU .... ). It is, however, maintained by the Gnome people. But just because it's a GTK+ app doesn't mean it's a Gnome app (otherwise all XFCE, GPE, and Maemo apps would also be Gnome apps, which doesn't make much sense).

No, they're not the same. Just looking at the screenshots, and videos, Diva looks easier to use, and more flexible. Diva's also built on GStreamer, and written in C#, and runs on Mono.

oldskool, why don't use your "yum" or apt-get clone to download gstreamer and compile divo from source?
