How to build rav1e on Ubuntu

This will fetch and build the current git master of rav1e. The build process has been tested on Ubuntu 18.04 with rav1e git revision 49dcaada4.

sudo apt update
sudo apt -y install cargo git perl nasm cmake clang pkg-config
# Fetch
git clone
mv rav1e rav1e-git
cd rav1e-git
git submodule update --init
# Build libaom-av1
make -j$(nproc)
# Build rav1e
cargo build --release
# Copy to parent directory
cp target/

After the build finishes, the rav1e executable is placed in the directory where you ran those commands. You can delete the rav1e-git folder
