Thanks for the replies,  Phyllis and Adrew.

Either it is my installation or just me. Actually I thought of both the 
Leap 15 system's and Cinelerra's bundled ffmpeg and libs.
But so far I have not been able to find or use the latter "ffmpeg4.1" or 
"x264-snapshot-20180118-2245" as shown below. I have removed and 
re-installed the latest Cinelerra and Cinelerra10-bit packages on Leap 
15 according to the standard installation procedures, in case there was 
something left from my previous Leap 42.3 to Leap 15 upgrade.

Here is the output from my installation:

# which cin cinx

# find / -name ffmpeg
find: ‘/run/user/1000/gvfs’: Permission denied

# find / -name ffmpeg4.1
find: ‘/run/user/1000/gvfs’: Permission denied

# /usr/share/cinx/ffmpeg/ffmpeg -h encoder=libx264
-bash: /usr/share/cinx/ffmpeg/ffmpeg: No such file or directory

and regarding x264 and x265 respectively:

# find / -name x264-snapshot-20180118-2245
find: ‘/run/user/1000/gvfs’: Permission denied

# find / -name libx264*
find: ‘/run/user/1000/gvfs’: Permission denied

# find / -name x265*
find: ‘/run/user/1000/gvfs’: Permission denied

# find / -name libx265*
find: ‘/run/user/1000/gvfs’: Permission denied

I expect your output was from Fedora.
Do you have a chance to test and possibly confirm/clarify this on your 
Leap 15 installation?

The package names are not a big deal. Yet, if so - maybe Cinelerrax264 
and Cinelerrax265 would be better options, when the Cinelerra x264 
version now should be able to handle both 8-bit and 10-bit color depth(?)
