CinelerraCV (the community developed version of Cinelerra) has announced that the new video editor they are working on will be called "Lumiera". Names were garnered from the community and voted on and "Lumiera" was the winner. The name not only sounds slightly similar to "Cinelerra", but it also conjures up thoughts of the Lumiere Brothers who were pioneers in the film industry. From Wikipedia: "The Lumières held their first private screening of projected motion pictures on March 22, 1895. Their first public screening of movies at which admission was charged was held on December 28, 1895, at Paris's Salon Indien du Grand Café. This history-making presentation featured ten short films, including their first film, Sortie des Usines Lumière à Lyon (Workers Leaving the Lumière Factory). Each film is 17 meters long, which, when hand cranked through a projector, runs approximately 46 seconds. It is believed their first film was actually recorded that same year (1895) with Léon Bouly's cinématographe device, which was patented the previous year. The cinématographe— a three-in-one device that could record, develop, and project motion pictures— was further developed by the Lumières." Although it will probably still be quite some time before an actual release happens don't let that hold you back from getting involved now. Code development has already started and work is going on now to develop logos and other supporting material for the new editor. The developers of the new NLE will create an optimized code base which is based upon much of the feature set of Cinelerra. Cinelerra will continue to be developed by Heroine Virtual..
