       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.
