20  HOW TO INSTALL
21#################
22
23Because of the many dependencies required to run OpenShot, we have
24created a build wizard to assist you.  Please download the 
25OpenShot Build Wizard (http://www.openshotvideo.com/2008/04/download.html), and 
26run the install.py file.

31  INSTRUCTIONS
32#################
33
34Most Linux distributions have already packaged OpenShot.  So the easiest
35way to install is to use your favorite package manager, and install
36the version in your distribution.  However, if you are trying to build
37from source, here are some tips: 
38
39OpenShot Video Editor is programmed in Python, and thus does not need
40to be compiled to run.  However, be sure you have the following 
41dependencies in order to run OpenShot successfully: 
42
431) Python 2.5+ (http://www.python.org)
442) GTK & pyGTK (http://www.pygtk.org)
453) GooCanvas & Python bindings (http://live.gnome.org/GooCanvas)
464) MLT Framework (http://www.mltframework.org)
475) Sox audio library
486) Frei0r video effect library
497) FFmpeg
50
51( Download our build wizard to install MLT and all of these dependencies.  The
52  build wizard is located at http://www.openshotvideo.com/2008/04/download.html )
53
54
55To run OpenShot from the command line, use the following syntax:
56(be sure the change the path to match the install location of OpenShot)
57
58$ cd /home/USER/openshot/bin
59$ ./openshot
60

62#################
63  HOW TO INSTALL
64#################
65
66If you would like to install OpenShot, use this command:
67
68$ sudo python setup.py install
69
70Installing OpenShot using this command does a few extra things that
71the build wizard doesn't do.  It adds MIME Types, adds an icon to your
72Application menu, registers icons, adds a /usr/bin/openshot command, and
73copies all the code files to the /site-packages/ folder.

78    TUTORIAL
79#################
80
81Here is a tutorial of the current development features:
82
83	DO YOU HAVE A HELP MANUAL?
84		1) Yes, go to http://www.openshotusers.com/help/en/
85
86	HOW DO I ADD MEDIA TO MY VIDEO PROJECT?
87		1) Drag and drop videos or music files from gnome into the "Project Files" tree.
88		2) Click the File / Import Files... menu
89		3) Click the "Import Files" icon on the toolbar (at the top of the screen)
90		
91	HOW DO I ADD MEDIA TO MY TIMELINE
92		1) Click on any file in your "Project Files" tree, and drag it onto the timeline (at the bottom of the screen)
93		
94	HOW DO I POSITION CLIPS ON THE TIMELINE
95		1) Simply click on any clips already on the timeline, and drag them to their new location
96		2) Use the magnet icon to have your clips magically stick to their closest neighbor clips.
97		
98	HOW DO I TRIM / UN-TRIM CLIPS
99		1) Use the toolbar above the timeline (i.e. in the middle of the screen) and select the TRIM button
100		2) Then, move your mouse over the edges of any clips.  Click and drag the edge of the clip to it's new location.
101
102	THE AUDIO / VIDEO IS OUT OF SYNC.  WHAT CAN I DO?
103		1) This is usually related to a bug in MLT or FFmpeg.  To resolve this, re-encode the video using the 
104		   ffmpeg command line tool.
105		   
106		2) Here is an example command to convert a folder full of Canon MTS files to MP4:
107		   $ find '/home/jonathan/Desktop/Caveman Movie/Videos' -iname "*.MTS" -exec ffmpeg -i {} -acodec libfaac -ab 128k -ac 2 -r 60 -vcodec mpeg4 -f mp4 -y -sameq {}.mp4 \;
108
109		3) Usually the reason the A/V are out of sync is related to the frame rate (i.e. the -r parameter on the ffmpeg command).
110		   Try a variety of frame rates and OpenShot project types to find one that doesn't have A/V sync issues.
111		   Some common rates are:  -r 29.97  -r 25  -r 30  -r 60
