The second minor release of the 17.08 series is out adding a rotate from image center option in the Transform effect among other usability improvements. In other news the dev team continues making progress for the much anticipated 17.12 release. Start the countdown!
- Fix autosave: work around KAutoSaveFile bug with non-ASCII chars. Commit.
- Get ready for transform centered rotation. Commit.
- Fix keyframes unseekable on bin effects. Commit.
- Fix lift to handle negative values (requires latest MLT version). Commit.
- Prefer SDL2 to SDL1 (dropped by FFmpeg and so MLT). Commit.
Great post! I’m glad I’fe found Your blog. Sir.
(Always wanted to SPAM ourselves one beautiful day. Done.)
What a wonderful comment, you have put quite a lot of effort into this one, I can tell. Love everything about this, great comment. Hope to see more such comments from you soon.
Nice blog The DiveO. I found it some months ago and found some pretty good articles about my beloved kdenlive 😉
The 17.08.1b AppImage has all the updates of 17.08.2, it just needs a version bump. Just sayin in case you go get it before it gets updated.
Any idea on how I can get the appimage’s settings to stay once I close Kdenlive? Right now when I close the program and reopen it, any changes I’ve made to the program’s settings will revert back to the default settings.
I resolved kdenlive 17.08.2 after upgrade kubuntu 17.10
this release a big step to stability, crashed only once at 3 hours of work, but there is other problem. render finish with blank video, only sound plays. what can be wrong?
If you can provide a log of your bug and report the crash it will get fixed for sure. Basically if you report it, it’ll get fixed.
Hope this links help:
In the windows version this fixed the missing ‘kdenlivetitle’ and ‘qimage’ issue. I can make title clips again! Where do I donate? You guys rock. My linux laptop is old and slow so I am super stoked you have a windows version. Once I upgrade my linux laptop I will move back.
It’s sad the Ubuntu repositories are still on 17.04.3 🙁
While the Kdenlive stable ppa is at 17.04.3, Ubuntu itself has stable Kdenlive 17.08 available for at least Zesty and Artful (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/artful/+package/kdenlive). From the past I’ve found that Ubuntu takes ages to update MLT as Ubuntu distro packagers seem to wait for MLT releases instead of closely tracking MLT fixes (looks like a lack of insight into MLT’s development and release cycles on Ubuntu’s side from my point of view, but then, what do I know).
For the time, the Kdenlive master ppa (https://launchpad.net/~kdenlive/+archive/ubuntu/kdenlive-master) might be an option, as it is quite stable from my own experience; more so, as the timeline refactoring is done on a dedicated branch, while the master branch only receives fixes at the moment. However, when deciding to go master, make sure you are aware of the ramifications: master can become unstable at any time, due to a fix backfiring, so don’t update master in a project hot phase. But then, this is probably true also for mamy other stable software.
Thanks for the details, I will give it a try.
