While working hard in Randa, I implemented a feature that will make everyone happy: automatic backup of your project file!
We had a few reports on the forum of broken project files that were not recoverable. This is not a frequent issue, but losing all the work you have done on a video editing project is not fun! So after a short discussion with the Kdenlive team, here it is!
With this feature, every time you save your project file, instead of overwriting the existing version, it will create a dated backup of the previous version. In the Project menu, you will now have an Open Backup File entry that will bring up the dialog pictured here.
In the backup dialog, you see a list of all backuped versions of your project file with a nice screenshot of the timeline at the time the backup was made. You can then open any of the backup file to recover a previous version.
This is in svn and will be part of the next Kdenlive release.
A big thank you to all the people who made the Randa Sprint possible and so enjoyable!
