there are a few ways you can get packages and an new addition is to package management is slpkg(its not slackpkg) ,which when setup can be used a little like apt search .. apt install.
It can also do things like check out deps (see attached image) . So for cinelerra i installed it and ALL its deps using slpkg.
There are in's and outs for which way you go sometimes slackbuilds is a good route.For those that would like to know what a slackbuild does you can read my effort here : https://docs.slackware.com/howtos:misc:anatomy_of_a_slackbuild
Slackbuilds.org is still a place to checkout for info on pkgs and deps
