      Or the Question is, if there would be possibility to capture a sequence of non compressed pictures and with these would be posibble to work and edit video in a program such Lives (http://lives.sourceforge.net/)

      • Hi,
        sorry for missing your first question.
        The best choice for theora editing is probably cinelerra
        (http://cv.cinelerra.org/getting_cinelerra.php).

        For simple linear editing(e.g resizing,cropping, etc.),
        you can can also use the VLC media player.
        It has an extensive commandline syntax that allows a
        variety of transformations to be performed on a file.

        There's also Kino. Even though it transcodes non-DV files when
        importing, it's really easy to use and can export to theora.

        I personally use Kino+vlc.

        >>Or the Question is, if there would be possibility to capture a sequence of non compressed pictures and with these would be posibble to work and edit video in a program such Lives (http://lives.sourceforge.net/)

        recordMyDesktop will only produce ogg/theora+vorbis files.
        Capturing non-compressed images on the default 15fps on
        a resolution of 1280x1024@32bpp, would require more than 4 GB
        of space per minute, so it's not possible.

        BTW, I seem to remember that Lives supports theora import
        (but not export).

         
    • ah, there is an answer already to my question.  What If I have the disc space for that kind of file size.  I would much rather work with uncompressed video.

      • Ok, I was wrong to say that it's not possible to record
        uncompressed audio/video. If your machine is optimized
        for multimedia production or simply high spec, it can
        be done.

        But...

        As I've already stated, in my previous post, recordMyDesktop
        will only  produce ogg/theora+vorbis files.

        Sorry, but I'm simply not interested or motivated to add
        support for uncompressed or any other kind of output.

         
    • i use avidemux for non-lineare editing (i pre-convert the video with ffmpeg)
      also... kdenlive is great too !
