Kdenlive 0.9 improves effects workflow
Source: Kdenlive Version 0.9 of the Kdenlive open source video editor has been released, bringing usability enhancements and improvements to the effects workflow. According to its developers, the effect stack has been completely rewritten and now allows users to adjust parameters for multiple effects at the same time. These can then be grouped and the groups can be saved for use on other video clips.
For those filming using more than one camera, the update adds a new function that automatically aligns multiple video tracks using the audio streams. Additionally, an online browser for quickly finding and importing audio, graphic and video resources is now included, as is support for audio-only recording and sorting clips by date.
Source: Kdenlive Discussing the project's future, the developers say that they expect to publish some 0.9.x bugfix releases. They also note that, at the same time, the team will be working on cleaning up Kdenlive code as they work towards version 1.0, which is expected to arrive "by the end of the year".
A full list of changes and new features is provided in the announcement blog post and in the change log. Kdenlive 0.9 is available to download for various Linux distributions including Debian, Fedora, openSUSE, Slackware and Ubuntu; ports are also available for FreeBSD and as Mac OS X packages from MacPorts. All users are advised to upgrade to the new version. Source code and binaries for Kdenlive are licensed under the GPLv2.
