The first maintenance release of the 20.08 series is out fixing a regression in the Windows version with de-synced audio and wrong effects when rendering as well as other minor fixes. Currently all work is focused on the new functionality to apply transitions between two clips on same track. This new functionality is planned for upcoming version 20.12.
- Keep titlebars state (hidden/shown) when switching between layouts. Commit.
- Fix insert broken in some configurations (video disabled). Commit.
- Fix compilation. Commit.
- Don’t resize mixer widget if tabbed. Commit.
- Fix incorrect stream or no audio on insert. Commit.
- Update default editing layout. Commit.
- Fix audio only insert broken. Commit.
- Correctly update project duration on group move. Commit.
- Raise Project Bin when a clip is dropped in timeline or created through the menu. Commit.
- Correctly replace slideshow folder if moved. Commit.
- Fix a spelling error. Commit.
- Fix shift click for multiple selection broken in Bin. Commit.
I don’t understand what this is about, in this sentence:
“Currently all work is focused on same track transitions due for the 20.12 version.”
I’d like some details about this too. Maybe clips will be put on the same track with some overlap and transition will be put there. Like it is in Lightworks. (The thing I hate when working with Lightworks most)
I think they mean that transitions can be done on the same track (with tracks overlapping) instead of from one track to the other, as it is now.
So instead of
TRACK VIDEO 1
TRACK VIDEO 2
It will be
TRACK VIDEO 1 (trans) TRACK VIDEO 2
TRACK = CLIP
Thanks , but why is it written “due for the 20.12 version” why 20.12?
I updated the news text. Hopefully it’s clearer now.
Thanks! Now I can understand this news.
Thanks again for this excellent video editor.
I really appreciate among others the new presets for workspaces.
Just a question about what seems to me to be a very important feature (more particularly when you have to deal with a lot of material and sequences in film editing) : do you plan to implement timeline nesting (and the possibility to deal with many timelines in a project) ?
Nested timeline is on the road map https://invent.kde.org/multimedia/kdenlive/-/issues/226. What you can do is import another project as a clip.
Yes. I too need the possibility to deal with many timelines in a project! it`s perfect idea!
I never noticed it was possible to import a project as a clip. Kdenlive project files are filtered in add clip -> supported files (maybe you should add an option “add project as clip” in project bin ?).
Few months ago I had tried to import a 20.04 project in Kdenlive 20.04 but it didn’t work. Following your answer, I’ve imported a 20.08 project in Kdenlive 20.08 but audio is not imported.
Then I also tried to import a 20.08 project in Kdenlive 20.04 and, in this case, it works (audio is imported).
Anyway, it’s good to know that is possible to do that. Import project as clip is an important feature that completely change the workflow (perhaps you should mention it in current Kdenlive release features ?). Many editors create a timeline (or a project in this case) to edit a single sequence then they import all sequences in another timeline/project to finalize the whole movie.
Yes. I too imported a 20.08 project in Kdenlive 20.08 but audio is not imported.
Also i import a 20.08 project in Kdenlive 20.04 and,
it works, audio is imported.
Hi, thank you for this update, it is really a stable release! I’m really more and more in love wiht this NLE. Only two bugs found: horizontal scroll bar missing, and trying to change a shortcut will cause kdenlive to hang.
Thank you for the feedback.
Scroll bars are not missing they are just very dark: https://invent.kde.org/multimedia/kdenlive/-/issues/593
Yes, to change shortcuts on windows you have to wait each time 50sec.: https://invent.kde.org/multimedia/kdenlive/-/issues/763
Thank you for the information, this way I can use the NLE fluently. However I would be happy to see these minor bugs/cosmetic errors fixed. Keep up the good work.
And I’m on Windows 10 build 1909.
Hello, two new bugs found: first, if I change preview resolution on the fly (during playback), kdenlive crashes. Second, if I create preview render, the red bar over the selected area will not change gradually to green, just at once, at the end of the transcode process. At least this is the case when I use 2-5 sec length selections (not a major bug, but from UX I can not “feel the process”). Thank you for your hard work again!
I confirm working with (GPU|testing) for export in the version kdenlive-20.08.1b-x86_64.appimage
Strange. Every Nightly Appimage Build since Sep 20 has failed. The only last success build was on Sep 19.
I wonder why.
Thanks for heads up. We will check why it failed to build.
Daily AppImage is working again.
Yep! It’s back!
Failed to render the imported image?Why?
every single render of mine is pixelated in this version
motion track and transform effect was not working…
Olhe é uma pena!! Já tentei usar o editor diversas vezes mas infelizmente no windows o desempenho é quase zero… Perde feio pro shotcut no desenvolvimento… mas torço pela equipe Kdenlive… estou atento caso melhore o desenvolvimento… pulo pra cá.
