Re-FuzeHD  is a set of GUI based tools intended to reduce the need for commandline activities in Linux while archiving High Definition video. For years, the Linux user has had to make due with console commands such as:

[doug@SS21T-2 ~]$ cat /dev/video0 > BattleStarGalactica_4_03-720p.ts
[doug@SS21T-2 ~]$ mencoder -oac lavc -ovc lavc -of mpeg -mpegopts format=dvd \
-vf scale=720:480,harddup,softskip \ -srate 48000 -af lavcresample=48000 \
-lavcopts vcodec=mpeg2video:vrc_buf_size=1835:vrc_maxrate=9000:vbitrate=8000:\
keyint=18:aspect=16/9:acodec=ac3:abitrate=192 -ofps 30000/1001 \
-o BattleStarGalactica_4_03--480p.mpg BattleStarGalactica_4_03-720p.ts

Re-FuzeHD will streamline the entire Capture, Edit, Transcode and Archive process, making it possible for a user with very little experience with Linux to save videos to optical media and playback HDTV programs.
