Flowblade Movie Editor is a multitrack non-linear video editor for Linux released under GPL 3 license. Flowblade is designed to provide a fast, precise and as-simple-as-possible editing experience. Flowblade employs film style editing paradigm in which clips are usually automatically placed tightly after the previous clip - or between two existing clips - when they are inserted on the timeline. Edits are fine tuned by trimming in and out points of clips, or by cutting and deleting parts of clips. Film style editing is faster for creating programs with mostly straight cuts and audio splits, but may be slower when programs contain complex composites unless correct work flow is followed. Flowblade provides powerful tools to mix and filter video and audio.

Version history / Release notes / Changelog

Flowblade 1.10
Date: December 13, 2016

Flowblade 1.10 is the thirteenth release of Flowblade.

This cycle was a nice change in the sense that not much time was needed on project structural issues such as porting to GTK3 or creating a website.

The main feature in this release is the new Trim View, with the additional features being focused on editing and some GUI updates.

Next release cycle will focus on improved tool integration with the goal of providing more convenient and efficient ways to manipulate and create media within Flowblade in concert with other existing FLOSS tools. Some new editing tools and options will also be worked on, as well as bug fixes and feature requests in the Issues list.

Appimage for this will release will become available in January and for all subsequent releases it will be available at release date.

Trim View

Trim View is feature available in most commercial packages and now also in Flowblade, probably as the first FLOSS video editor. It is maybe best described just by a screenshot.. The advantages are clear: user is provided with more information when doing a trim and is thus able to better assess the correct cut frame within a single edit action.

Points on Trim View performance

for "Trim" tool the trim tool should mostly work quite well
for "Roll" and "Slip" tools there is no getting around the fact that two video streams need to be displayed in real time. The following performance considerations apply:
SSDs perform better the spinning hard disks
faster processors improve playback
video streams like image sequences consisting fully of I-frames perform better than streams with a lot of B- and P-frames
For these reasons the Trim View is off by default and needs to activated from menu below the monitor. Users are advised to assess for themselves if performance is satisfactory for system and media they are working on

Frame Matching

Trim view layout also addresses a fundamental restriction of a single monitor layout: user is unable to compare video material to other material when deciding on a clip to add to a sequence. We now provide two mechanisms to help with this use case:

monitor frame matching, shown here.
timeline frame matching, shown here.
Editing Improvements

a "Delete Range" button is now provided to cut and lift material inside selected range on all tracks
Filters in filter stack can now be rearranged
Spacer tool got some bug fixes improving its usabily
User can now select all clips before or after a clip on timeline using a popup menu option.
Export from timeline to tools

timeline clips can be now exported with frame range preserved to G'MIX Effects Tool, Slow/Fast Motion renderer and Natron if it is installed in the system.
Dual monitor and small screens improvements

dual monitor support has been improved by providing a to window layout shown here.
small screen sizes support has been updated with multiple bug fixes and feature additions.
GUI updates

Monitor area layout was updated with the main goal of providing clearer visual cues wheather Timeline or Clip is displayed in the monitor by making the selection buttons much bigger.
Middlebar got some minor visual updates
German translation update

German translation received an update from Mario Dejanovic.
Other bugfixes and improvements

Make render args available for small screen heights
Make Master Audio Meter available for small screen heights
Fix displayed media lengths for old and changed profile projects
Ask for exit confirmation when opening non-empty projects from recents list
Add 7/2 and 2/7 track configurations whencreating new projects
Trim init optimization
Fix adding watermark dialog freeze
Show file name in media item tooltip
Add track active set actions to all tracks menu
