Description:

Vivia is a video editing program based on Qt 4.1 that offers very user-friendly editing of DV video material. Currently only PAL DV-format video is supported.

v0.1.1 is the second alpha release. To compile on linux:
1) make sure that you have Qt 4.1 and SDL 1.2.
2) run ./build-ffmpeg-linux.sh
3) cd src
4) qmake
5) make

That will create an executable named 'vivia' in the 'src' directory.
Copy 'vivia' to the location of your choice, or run it directly from
within 'src'.

Further compiling instructions can be found at http://vivia.sourceforge.net/compiling.html

Testing with independent users revealed some interface problems that
I aim to address in v0.1.2.

WARNING/NOTE: If you have used v0.1, you will need to rename your project files!!! The extension '.dvproj' should become '.vivia'.
Last changelog:

12 years ago

v0.1.1:
- BUGFIX: Fix scrollbar bug in Multicam mode
- BUGFIX: Fix inability to load image files on Windows
- New interface for editing clips and transitions
- Swap out OpenGL interface and use SDL instead, because too many people
don't have accelerated OpenGL drivers. OpenGL will be added again in the
future.

looks like a change for the bad. I'm talking about how the interface looks. It is utterly ugly in my eyes. Why didn't you just stick with default widgets instead? You aren't doing any eye-candy or sophisticated looking interface judging from the current screenshots.

Jeez, guys you must make up your mind until it's late! It looks bad and I felt like letting you know this. So, please, take this post easy and reconsider the use of QT4 generic widgets.

It's cool that QT4 allows for such "good" looking user interfaces but such an interface will only look really good if images were designed by someone who's pretty good at designing non-standard looking interfaces.

That what I can see in the screenshots doesn't look like designed good at all!

Shouldn't this go to http://qt-apps.org/ site because it seems this isn't KDE application or does this use KDE open/save dialog, KDE color scheme or styles and icon themes?

I didnt try this application and it looks intresting application but this site is for KDE applications what respectes KDE settings.

Excellent Job.
I do weight my words.
I've been trying Jahshaka 2.0, Cinelerra 2.1, Lives 0.9.7. , Main Actor. None of those are as stable and easy to used as this apps.
This application is allready very stable. It is for me a very important point. The Handling is very straigtforward. I want to congratulate you for the very goog job. More over you are using very standards Libraries (QT4). This is also a very good point. I'm shure this piece of software will become soon the second piece of the chain after Kino which is for me the best choice for the moment.

Thanks for the report! I'll try to fix it, but I don't know when I'll have the opportunity to install an AMD64 distribution myself for testing...

No sources for this project?
I downloaded and extracted
the tarball but inside were only an
executable and an icon.
Great piece of software anyway!!!

The sources are definitely in there -- in fact, there is no executable. Did you maybe download the ZIP from sourceforge instead of the .tar.bz2?

*sigh*

It's nice to see more KDE Apps, but... there are so many NLV Editors around already, and none of them are reliable or capable of all the video formats that mplayer is. PLEASE contribute your time to kdenlive, or pitivi, instead of starting from scratch.

kdenlive has been around for almost 5 years, and they haven't made enough progress for me to be interested in working with them as a team. Same goes for kino, though kino has made some really nice progress recently. Pitivi and Diva both look nice, but they are based on GStreamer, which is a bad choice for a video editor imho -- not to mention I have no inclination to work with GTK, C#, or Python any more than I have to. Jahshaka and Cinellera target a professional audience, whereas I'm interested in casual desktop users. The various VJ programs are also for a different audience. There are a few other lesser-known projects too, but none that appeal to me.

Vivia will probably noticably outperform Pitivi due to language and library decisions, and kdenlive's UI concepts aren't very good. Given what already exists, I believe that Vivia has the most potential for the next couple years.

Well KDEnlive has been dead for a couple of years, but has recently seen *massive* improvements - its being ported to the MLT framework, and is rather impressive.

However, your app looks very nice, and simple to use. Do you have any plans to convert it to a KDE app once KDE4 is out? Also, as for export, why not use the export scripts that come with Kino? All these do is read raw dv from stdin.

Yes, as an avid KDE user, I intend to port Vivia to KDE4 once things are far enough along.

Thanks for the tip about the Kino scripts. I'll take a look at them.

Fair enough. You've thought this through more than I realised. In that case, I'll look forward to seeing what how the project comes along. Some parts of it do look good so far :)

Let's wait and see who has the most tractable infrastructure.

It'd be a shame not to have a few attempts before settling on a few dominant projects..

Please you must include NTSC Format "is universal", my original format is PAL-N but i can use NTSC to.

Sounds very good!!!

Would you mind make it compatible with more video formats like avi and mpeg? That would be cool since I don't own a video camera.

Thanks!

Support for other formats has a very high priority. It'll likely come with v0.2 or v0.3 early next year.
