Since last week’s 17.12 alpha release, we have been steadily progressing on the road to stability, and can now announce the second alpha AppImage including the following changes:
- Now uses Qt 5.9.1 instead of 5.7.0
- Fixes wrong icon coloring in UI
- Patched KDE Frameworks to fix a performance issue
- Fix corruption/crash on project opening
- Reimplement check for clips on removable drive
- Reintroduce advanced editing features: lift/extract/insert/overwrite
The updated AppImage can be downloaded here:
This release is only made available for interested testers and should not be used for production. Please report problems in the categories placed on the phabricator page regarding the AppImage / timeline refactoring branch, we will switch back to the normal bugtracker when the beta release will be ready.
See you in our next Kdenlive café on monday, 2nd of October at 9pm CEST
I am interested in testing the versions up to 17.12. But i don’t know how to connect / log in to Phabricator …
Create an account here: https://identity.kde.org/ and then log in to phabricator. After the alpha phase we’ll go back to the bug tracker. (You can use the same kde account for both.)
this looks all very promising! the alpha already runs better on my computer than the regular 17.x releases 🙂
audio/video split clips by default is already implemented? Or still mixed clips?
Splitting audio and video is supported by Kdenlive so long that I don’t remember when it came in. There’s a button in the status bar, it looks like a a single film frame with an audio signal; see also this toolbox article about timeline track LEDs and scroll down to see what the status bar button looks like. In addition, when you hover the mouse pointer over the status bar buttons you should see tooltips.
When you click on the automatic split button, Kdenlive will automatically split for each clip placed in the timeline. There’s also a configuration option whoch simply mimics the status bar button. For details on working with automatic splitting, please also see track header improvements.
