       This manual page documents briefly the lives command.

       LiVES  lets you start editing and  making  video  right  away,  without
       having  to  worry about formats, frame sizes, or framerates. LiVES will
       let you start creating your own tools, utilities and  effects  via  the
       built in RFX builder.
