Version 19.08
  • Release Date: Aug 20, 2019
  • Kdenlive 19.08 released
    by farid a. | Aug 16, 2019 | News, Releases | 0 comments

    After a well deserved summer break, the Kdenlive community is happy to announce the first major release after the code refactoring. This version comes with a big amount of fixes and nifty new features which will lay the groundwork for the 3 point editing system planned for this cycle. The Project Bin received improvements to the icon view mode and new features were added like the ability to seek while hovering over clips with the mouse cursor and now it is possible to add a whole folder hierarchy. On the usability front the a menu option was added to reset the Kdenlive config file and now you can search for effects from all tabs instead of only the selected tab. Head to our download page for AppImage and Windows packages.

    3 point editing with keyboard shortcuts

    With 19.08.0 we added groundwork for full editing with keyboard shortcuts. This will speed up the edit work and you can do editing steps which are not possible or not as quick and easy with the mouse. Working with keyboard shortcuts in 19.08 is different as in the former Kdenlive versions. Mouse operations have not changed and working as before.

    3 important points to understand the new concept:

    Source (left image):
    On the left of the track head the green vertical lines (V1 or A2). The green line is connected to the source clip in the project bin. Only when a clip is selected in the project bin the green line show up depending of the type of the clip (A/V clip, picture/title/color clip, audio clip).

    Target (right image):
    In the track head the target V1 or A1 is active when it’s yellow. An active target track react to edit operations like insert a clip even if the source is not active (see “Example of advanced edit” here).

    The concept is like thinking of connectors:
    Connect the source (the clip in the project bin) to a target (a track in the timeline). Only when both connectors on the same track are switched on the clip “flow” from the project bin to the timeline. Be aware: Active target tracks without connected source react on edit operations.

    You can find a more detailed introduction in our Toolbox section here.

    Adjust AV clips independently with Shift + resize to resize only audio or video part of a clip. Meta + Move in timeline allows to move the audio or video part to another track independently.

    Press shift while hovering over clips in the Project Bin to seek through them.

    Adjust the speed of a clip by pressing CTRL + dragging a clip in the timeline.

    Now you can choose the number of channels and sample rates in the audio capture settings.

    Other features

    Added a parameter for steps that allows users to control the separation between keyframes generated by the motion tracker.
    Re-enable transcode clip functionality.
    Added a screen selection in the screen grab widget.
    Add option to sort audio tracks in reverse order.
    Default fade duration is now configurable from Kdenlive Settings > Misc.
    Render dialog: add context menu to rendered jobs allowing to add rendered file as a project clip.
    Renderwidget: Use max number of threads in render.
    More UI components are translatable.

We expect to finish polishing in the coming months in order to focus on our planned pro features.

    Kdenlive 19.04.1 fixes some important issues, so all 19.x users are encouraged to upgrade. Easiest way to test it is through the AppImage, available from the KDE servers as usual:

    The Appimage also contains some last minute fixes that will be in 19.04.2 since we are still busy fixing some remaining issues after our big refactoring. This Appimage should fix the rendering and timeline preview issues recently reported, and the 19.04.1 fixes are listed below.

    Other news: work continues to improve OpenGL support, fixes by the team have been merged into MLT improving speed and the Titler will be rewritten as a GSOC project.

Version 18.08.2

    In other news, the Refactoring is moving steadily ahead and we will release a wider test beta version soon, stay tuned. Also the refactoring branch is now building automatically on KDE’s automated integration system (CI), and all the regressions tests pass. This means that after each change to the source code, the CI will run the tests to check that no regression happens. On the sysadmin front we are cleaning up our bug tracker in preparation for the 18.12 release.

    Improve missing luma detection (region transition) – fixes project crash. Commit.
    Home/End now also seek in clip monitor. Commit.

Version 18.04.1
  • Release Date: May 12, 2018
  • Kdenlive 18.04.1 released
    by Jean-Baptiste Mardelle | May 11, 2018 | News, Releases, Uncategorized | 0 comments

    While our team is working on the awaited refactoring, we still managed to add 2 small usability improvements in the 18.04.1. version. First the safe zone overlay was improved so you can now easily spot the center of your frame:

    Then we improved the default background color for the titler so that white text can easily be read without having to make further adjustments.
    These changes were made during our great Paris sprint. At the same time, we are improving our packaging efforts, so you can find the following download options right now (besides official distro packages):

    AppImage: the latest 18.04.1 version is available, now with support for Ladspa plugins
    Flatpak: we are glad to announce the availability of Kdenlive on flathub, so it can now easily be installed on distributions supporting flatpak (thanks to Peter Eszlari).
    Windows: Vincent Pinon worked on an update to the Windows version, so windows users can now test the latest 18.04.1.
Version 18.04
  • Release Date: May 11, 2018
Version 17.12.0
  • Release Date: Dec 17, 2017
  • Kdenlive 17.12.0 released
    by Jean-Baptiste Mardelle | Dec 15, 2017 | News, Releases | 0 comments

    Kdenlive 17.12.0 released
    We are happy to announce the latest Kdenlive version, part of the KDE Applications 17.12 release, making it the last major release using the current code base. This is a maintenance release focused on stability, while feature development is going in next year’s 18.04 version. Proxy clips were given some attention and should give you better seeking experience as well as reduced memory usage for images. Other fixes include fixes in timeline preview, a crash when using a Library clip and smoother seeking on rewind playback.

    We have been pushing the AppImage packages lately because it allow us to put all required dependencies inside one file that can easily be downloaded and run on all linux distros. Today, we can also announce the immediate availability of the Kdenlive 17.12 AppImage, downloadable here :

    AppImage related fixes:

    Fix audio distortion affecting the 17.08.3 AppImage
    Include Breeze style
    Vincent Pinon is also continuing the support for the Windows version, and you can get Kdenlive 17.12 for Windows here:

    We are also making available the first usable “preview” AppImage of the refactoring branch which will receive all development focus from now and will be released as 18.04. It is not ready for production but allows you to have a look at Kdenlive’s future. You may follow the development progress here.

    Kdenlive 18.04 alpha 2 release:

    Meet us:
    Next Kdenlive Café is tonight on #kdenlive at 21PM (CET), so feel free to join us for some feedback!

    Packagers must take note that libsamplerate is now a dependency due to recent changes in FFMPEG.
    It is recommended for Ubuntu (and derivatives) users to use the AppImage version until further notice.
