Editing movies on OpenBSD

Date: 2020-06-06
Time: 10:30 - 11:15
Room: Stream 3
Level: Intermediate

All times are based on Ottawa time, which is UTC -4. For example, 9AM is 1300 UTC.

Of course you can make movies on OpenBSD! I will touch on many tasks related to video production, including planning, recording, editing of video tracks, editing of audio tracks, composition of subtitles, alignment of different tracks, translation of subtitles, encoding, publishing, and version control.

Through examples of videos that I have edited on OpenBSD, I will demonstrate some of the specific programs that I use for the above tasks and will comment on alternative programs that are available for OpenBSD. Here is a non-exhaustive list of programs that I use for editing video: vim, make, ffmpeg, mkvmerge, mpv, sox, aucat, bc, fossil, borgbackup, R, Python, ImageMagick, and custom Unix-style utilities.

While my focus is on showing you how to edit videos, I will also comment on why I prefer these softwares to popular alternatives. Some of these popular alternatives are proprietary, but comments will go beyond the problems that are created directly by proprietary licensing.
