Kdenlive - a free and open-source video editor for GNU/Linux

Kdenlive is an intuitive and powerful multi-track video editor, including most recent video technologies, released as a free software (GPL). Using Kdenlive is investing in a community driven project, which aims to establish relationships between people in order to built the best video tools.

New web site

As you can see, we just updated the Kdenlive web site. Our goal is to have a collaborative web site which allows users to put content on it and helps finding useful information. We also hope that it will bring other people into the project, because help is always welcome!

Several features are planned for this web site:

* Better integration of the forum
* Improve online collaborative documentation
* Allow users to upload tutorials

KDE4 porting progress, no time for KDE3 version....

The KDE4 version is progressing nicely, and several improvements were made to the MLT video framework which should make the next release very attractive. Sadly, I don't have enough time to work on the KDE3 version, so no progress was made on that side.

I know it is frustrating that no release was made for a long time, but the port to KDE4 was almost a complete rewrite, and the KDE3 version, which was not originally written for MLT was too complex to maintain.

Here you can see a screenshot of current development version. What still needs to be done is some work on transitions and better loading/saving, then we will be ready for a beta release.

KDE4 porting progress

Development is going on for the KDE4 version, see attached screenshot. A lot of work has still to be done, I hope to be able to release a fisrt KDE4 version in 2 months.
Meanwhile the current KDE3 development version should hopefully be released as Kdenlive 0.6 in march...

KDE4 porting is in progress

I think it is time to give some news about Kdenlive development. I am currently working on the KDE4/QT4 port of Kdenlive. If everything goes well, I hope to have all basic features working in february. This is also an occasion to do a big code cleanup, so hopefully, it will be easier for new developers to join the project.

More news as soon as Kdenlive for KDE4 is becomming ready. You can already have a look at the screenshot that is showing the current development state...
