The Lumiera project strives to create a video/film editing solution usable for professional grade productions, e.g. a documentary or feature film. The main focus is on supporting large scale and complicated project setups and to add the actual media processing in an open plugin-based manner Lumiera was born out of the Cinlelerra community. It started as a partial rework of the Cinelerra codebase, but then quickly turned into a complete re-engineering. It has been underway for almost 3 years, and has a substantial body of working code, but is not yet ready for end users.
