The README appimage file describes the CLI method to install Cinelerra-GG

   1) download AppImage file    move from Download folder to your preference
   2) make it executable         chmod u+x {AppImageFile name}
   3) run it            ./cinelerraGG.AppImpage


Now I have also tried the /GUI method/ to download, Run And Integrate 
Cinelerra AppImage with installed *AppImageLauncher*.
On openSUSE Leap 15.3 (and surely similar on other distros) 
AppImageLauncher is integrated with Firefox as follows:

   1) start download the AppImage file, and a widget popup in Firefox 
with the option to open it with AppImageLauncher (instead of Saving it)
   2) At the end of the download a new popup asks to integrate it with 
your desktop system. OK


(The AppImage installation directory is /home/user/Application by 
default, but can be customized in the Launcher widget)

That's it. Both *Cin* and *Cin-multi* were installed this way, automatic 
integrated with icons and in the app-menue in Gnome,
see the attached screenshot AppImage.png and urls to articles for 
detailed info below.

I have used *alacarte* to add the icon comment sub-text to *Cin-multi* 
for multiple bit version.the icon, as also mentioned in a previous post
