Newbie here. I am wondering if there is any alternative for the open source LiVES Video Editing software ( on Windows 7? Or, can the lives source be compiled on Windows with Cygwin? Are there 64-bit alternatives? Thanks.

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.

Here it says that you can run LiVES from a DVD or bootable USB. Would that work for you? – Saaru Lindestøkke Feb 28 '13 at 18:40
I saw that, and that would probably work stop-gap, but was looking for a long-term solution. Thanks for the pointer. – Samik R Mar 1 '13 at 21:50
