GES (GStreamer Editing Services) is a cross-platform library that sits on top of GStreamer and GNonLin. GES simplifies the creation of multimedia editing applications. Basically, GES is a complete SDK for making a video editor (but not only that).

Traditionally, PiTiVi was a user interface and a homemade video editing "core" (or "backend") that interacted directly with GNonLin. Starting in version 0.16, PiTiVi's core is being replaced by GES.

The port to GES has many advantages:
