       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 file that will be loaded at startup. Alternatively, you can  specify  a  SMIL
       playlist of DV files that was previously created with kino.

       DV  is a special kind of video encoding, commonly used in digital camcorders.  Differently
       coded movies, like DivX or mjpeg, need to be converted to DV before they can be  fed  into

       A  video  file  either  holds  the  raw  DV-coded data, or wraps it in a certain container
       format. Kino currently supports AVI, and QuickTime containers, and  distinguishes  between
       the different formats by file extension.  Therefore, file names need to end in .dv or .dif
       for raw files, .avi for AVI, and .mov for QuickTime files, respectively. Anything else  is
       treated as a SMIL playlist.


       Unlike  other  editors,  kino  uses many keyboard commands for fast navigation 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  following is a brief list of the commands. A more complete list is available in
       the online help.
