Kdenlive 19.04.3 released with a whole lot of bug-fixes
The latest stable version of the best free software video editor has a really long list of bug-fixes, 12 of which were causing crashes. Cursor tools now work as they should when hovering a timeline and the clip selection code, which previously would cause lags when working with lots of clips, is now a whole lot faster.
The Futurue is Kdenlive 19.08
The kdenlive team has been working hard on the next-generation kdelive which will be released as version 19.08 "in less than a month". The git development branch is already indicating kdenlive's version as 19.07.70. This upcoming kdenlive release's codebase has already got quite a few really neat new features.
The git versions allows you to preview the clips in the
Project Bin by holding
shift and hovering the mouse above the small thumbnails. Moving the mouse to the beginning or end of the small thumbnails let you preview clips as if the thumbnail was a time-line. This really cool feature lets you quickly get an idea what the clip's about before opening it in the clip monitor or adding it to the timeline.
Some features that are scheduled to be in 19.08 are not yet finished. There may or may not be an improved speed effect and a new 3 point workflow system in the new version.
