Linux Journal presents two new articles on the LiVES Video Editor:
The LiVES Video Editor and VJ Tool Turns 1.0
by LiVES author Gabriel Finch and
It LiVES! Video Editing For FOSS Movie Makers
a review by Dave Philips.
From the first article:
"The LiVES project was started in 2002 by me, the author, and I continue to manage and enhance the project. At the time I had just bought a digital camera that was capable of taking short video clips of 10 seconds or so. Although I could play these clips perfectly well in mplayer, I was unable to find any editor on Linux which was capable of editing this format. So I thought - if I can play the clips, then I should be able to save the frames and edit them. I looked at the manpage for mplayer and noted that it could output multiple image files. From this the LiVES editor was born.
