Well I had a weekend free and.....

Decided to install Mandriva 10.2 on my PC and see if I could get kinoDV up and
running.

Suprised myself after two tries and a reinstall of the OS I got it working :0) (and it works well) However I now find I need a video editor app, somthing which will allow me to change the colour balance and if posable also do chroma key edits. (I have a lot of blue screen DV stock)

I tried several times to install cinalerra v1 and v2 but after lots and lots of tries now have an install of v2 that will do everything except save the new video (render) The clip does save, but becomes massive 300MB for a 30sec mpeg1??? and the video is distorted with no sound and colour all over the place.

If I export to jpegs (one jpeg per frame) then the jpegs are fine so anyone have any idea what the problem is???

Aha the penny drops I dont think I have QT installed. Although I went through the usual trawl to get all the dependencies sorted I dont think QT was on the list. Im not too stuck for disk space (yet) but the clips Im working on are fairly short in any case.
Another thought Iv had which may make my job a bit quicker is if there is a loss less mpeg splitter which can pull out a number of seconds of video from a longer file but without recompressing the data, it would mean I wont need to go back the the original DV clips in the first place as I have copies of the DV tapes in mpeg for refrence (but obiously these look naf when recompressed after edititng).
