LiVES is a simple to use, yet powerful video editor and VJ tool. It allows you to combine realtime and rendered effects, streams and multiple video/audio files, and then encode to over 50 formats. It is small in size, yet it has many advanced features.

LiVES is part editor, part VJ tool. It is fully extendable through open standard RFX plugin scripts.

LiVES lets you start editing and making video right away, without having to worry about formats, frame sizes, or framerates. LiVES will let you start creating your own tools, utilities and effects via the built in RFX builder.

LiVES is aimed at the digital video artist who wants to create their own content, the video editor who wants to create professional looking video, and the VJ who wants to captivate with spectacular images.

The current *features* that LiVES supports:


* Stable and well tested core.
* Fully cross platform for Linux and many flavours of Unix (e.g. BSD, openMosix, IRIX, OSX/Darwin).
* Runs on at least x86, amd64, x86_64, i64, sparc, hppa, ppc and xbox/x86.
* The LiVES audio/video platform is now custom extendable through RFX plugins. See the Custom RFX page for more details.
* Allows quick and easy prototyping of new tools, utilities, effects, transitions and more, using the included RFX builder window.
* Plugins can be written in Perl, thus allowing O/S level access to individual frames within clips.
* Will scale for high/low end hardware. Can be split into client/server components.
* Control every function in LiVES remotely using OSC protocol.
* Packages for most major linux distributions: Ubuntu, Debian, Gentoo, Suse, Fedora Core, Rock Linux, Source Mage, Alt Linux, and Dynebolic.
* 100% original, non-proprietary code.


* Loading and editing of most video formats (via mplayer decoder).
* Smooth playback at variable frame rates, forward and in reverse. Display framerate can be controlled independantly of playback framerate.
* Cut and paste of frames within and between clips.
* Saving/re-encoding of clips, selections, and individual frames.
* Lossless backup/restore.
* Streaming input and output.
* Real time blending of clips (chroma and luma blends).
* Support for many plugin types including frei0r, libvisual and projectM (Milkdrop).
* Can handle in/out streams in yuv4mpeg format. Streams can be piped from stdout into other applications.
* Live inputs for firewire and TV cards
* Supports fixed and variable framerates. Playback rate can be smoothly adjusted independant of display rate.
* Ability to \'scratch\' with video - that is to move smoothly backwards and forwards through it, and to record yourself doing so.
* Playback can use LiVES\' own internal player, there is also a high performance fullscreen SDL playback plugin
* Support for RGB24, RGBA32, YUV420 (TV), and UYVY palettes, horizontal chroma subsampling is implemented.
* Ability to edit many filetypes and sources including remotely located files (with mplayer/ffmpeg libraries), and directories of images.
* Real time capture/recording of interactive (via mouseclicks) external windows.
* Encode to any of the 50+ output formats which are now supported (e.g. mjpeg, mpeg4, mpeg1/2, VCD, SVCD, DVD, ogg/mp4 ogm, Matroska mkv, dv, swf, Ogg Theora, Dirac, MNG, Snow, xvid, and even animated GIF and PDF!)
* Encoder formats can be extended through the encoder plugin API.
* LiVES will suggest the best settings for saving to each format.
* Resampling of video (time stretching) to any frame rate (1 to 200 fps; accurate to 8 decimal places); option to auto-resample or speed up/slow down between clips.
* Ability to instantly alter the playback speed of video and audio independently.
* Rotation, resizing and trimming of video clips.
* Deinterlacing, subtitle removal.
* Instant saving/loading of clips for performances/presentations.


* Can load mp3, ogg, mod, xm and wav files.
* LiVES can also load tracks directly off CD to use with your video (using cdda2wav).
* Ability to save audio selections, and append audio.
* Sound can be trimmed to fit video selections.
* Cutting and pasting of audio within and between clips.
* Resampling of audio (rate, channels, sample size, signedness and endianness); audio is auto-resampled between clips.
* Supports (auto)inserting of silence and deletion of audio sections.
* Supports LADSPA audio effects.


* Many effects, including random/targeted zooming, panning of video, colour cycling and colorisation/colour filtering.
* Merging/compositing of frames is possible: e.g. frame-in-frame, fade in/out and transparency.
* Real time previews as the effect is processing.
* Support for the frei0r effect plugin architecture which allows sharing of realtime effects with other applications.
* Support for projectM (Milkdrop) audio visual plugins.
* Use real time effects to blend clips together, regardless of frame size or fps. Luma and chroma blending are currently supported.
* Multiple real time effects are now possible during playback (VJ mode), these can also be rendered to frames.
* Effects and transitions are now fully customisable using the RFX builder window.
* Effects/blends can also be applied to incoming streams in real time.
* Dynamic loading of effects.


* Multitrack window with drag and drop
* Intelligent screen organisation - shows you only the information which is relevant, no more and no less
* Support for an almost limitless number of tracks and effects
* Rapid rendering - resize/resample and effects apply done in a single pass
* Tracks can be laid out entirely with keyboard, or with mouse, or a combination of both
* Multitrack settings can be targetted for a specific encoder, or generic
* Layouts can be saved and reloaded


* Full crash recovery.
* Simple and intuitive menu layout.
* I18N text support. Translations into French, Dutch, Czech, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, Polish, Hungarian, Russian, Slovak and Turkish are included.
* Jack audio support
* Jack transport support (master or client)
* Pulse audio support
* RFX builder allows rapid prototyping of new effects, transitions utilities and tools. Custom RFX scripts can be exported to share with others or downloaded and imported. Test scripts are run in a sandbox to allow safe testing of new plugins.
* Midi sequence synchronisation (start/stop).
* Can load single images or directories of images in numerical order and assemble them into videos or slideshows.
* Ability to play music through xmms (including random selection of tracks).
* Shuttle controls for firewire cameras/recorders. Can grab from DV and HDV formats.
* Project files (clips and layouts) can be exported and imported
* Toys!


* Based on gtk+ 3.x (or 2.16+), runs under KDE, Gnome, Fluxbox and most other window managers.
* Several built in themes/skins available (see screenshots). Custom themes will be supported soon.
