kino - non-linear editing of Digital Video data
kino [ ( file | playlist ) ... ]
kino allows you to import movies from DV camcorders, to edit, and play
them. file may be a DV encoded AVI file that will be loaded at
startup. Alternatively, you can specify a SMIL playlist of AVI files
that was previously created with kino.
Unlike other editors, kino uses many keyboard commands for fast naviga-
tion and editing inside the movie. It acts on frames that are single
images from a movie, scenes that are defined as groupings of one or
more frames with recording times differing by no more than one second,
and movies that are groups of one or more scenes. The following
keystrokes can be used for moving and editing. Some of them are also
available as buttons in a graphical menu bar. (Also note the deliberate
similarities between kino commands and the text editor vi.) The follow-
ing is a brief list of the commands. A more complete list is available
in the online help.
