Kdenlive 0.9 released


Kdenlive 0.9 has just been released. We encourage all users to upgrade to this new version that fixes many small issues and should improve the overall user experience. Some of the new features include:

Improved effects workflow

The effect stack was rewritten to allow adjusting parameters for several effects in one go. Effects can also be grouped, groups can be saved and effects or groups can be dragged and dropped onto another clip

Automatic audio alignment

If you have been working on a scene with several camcorders, Kdenlive can now automatically align the clips in timeline using the audio.

Easy import of online resources

Kdenlive now has an online resource browser that allows you to easily preview and import audio, graphic and video resources from archive.org, freesound audio library and open clip art.

Usability improvements

Many small improvements and bugfixes should make your use of Kdenlive nicer and smoother, for examples:

  • Recording can now be monitored through the audio and color scopes, audio normalization can analyse audio for better results
  • Allow audio only recording
  • Clips can be sorted by date
  • New effects from MLT / frei0r: video stabilizers, IIR Blur, etc
  • Offline editing (Backup the project with proxy clips only to work on less powerful computers)
  • See a more complete changelog on our Kdenlive 0.9 info page

Get it!

The Kdenlive 0.9 source tarball can be downloaded from the KDE servers: download link.
Binary packages will be announced in our download page

The future

A big thank you to all the people that contributed in one way or another to improve this new version. Some bugfix 0.9.x releases will be made when necessary, but in the background we are working (well mostly Till) on a refactoring to cleanup the code and hope to reach the 1.0 milestone by the end of the year, thanks to the fantastic success of our fundraising campaign.

As usual, users are welcome to join our forums and bugtracker to report problems.

Fixed, thanks.

Wow, nice. That was fast compared to earlier releases.

Also could you do something with the comment section? I have a dark/golden system colourscheme and in this comment box, it is golden font on grey background and I can hardly see, what I'm writing.

Maybe you should change your colour scheme rather than Kdenlive web site change theirs :-)

Because it looks fine to me.

Having lived already on the bleeding sunab repository I highly appreciate all your work on kdenlive. While I'm a video editor noob, kdenlive allows me to work on my diving video footage and create nice clips, thank you very much for kdenlive!

Excited about this!

I'll wait until there are packages for Ubuntu but it sounds good. Thanks for all your work - you guys do an amazing job.

Thanks for the new version. I love Kdenlive. BTW you forgot to send the announcement to KDE Apps Announcements mailing lsts: https://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kde-announce-apps

congrats!

Just wanted to say thanks for all your work and for this awesome release.
I find the new effect workflow a huge improvement. Clip sync based on audio tracks is working spectacularly well so far, even with heavily edited audio tracks. I'm still experimenting with the stabilizer parameters (transcode) but that's also a brilliant addition to kdenlive.
Keep up the good work!

Unfortuantly for me this new release has opened up a world of new bugs for me. I'm gonna have to down-grade. I can't wait until a stable release comes out. I don't think you guys should be adding so many new features when there's so many bugs you could fix first.

Where do you find the frei0r video stabilizer effect?

In the project tree right click on a clip or access the option for the current selected in clip in the project tree through the "project" entry in the menu bar at the top.

Very nice work! Thank you all participants!
