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.

Flowblade 1.8
Date: September 2, 2016

Flowblade 1.8 is the twelth release of Flowblade.

During this cycle a lot of time was spend on creating a website for the project and on bringing a node compositor tool to Flowblade. Website was succesfully deployed, but the node compositor tool was dropped in final stages of development.

The node compositor was dropped when I realized that it does not serve any user group particularly well.

Casual users will find difficult to use node compositors effectively as any non-trivial composition requires creating complex node graphs. On the other hand adcanced users already have alternative FLOSS solutions like Natron and Blender available, and are unlikely to adopt this tool in meaningful numbers.

Once it became clear that it would require postponing this release quite a bit to do the remaining bugfixing and creating documentation, I decided that the project is best served by allocating resources to other areas of development.

We did get some good stuff in, and with the next cycle we can hopefully get moving with improved speed of feature development.

Particular attention will given to the current Issues list, with some of the other focus areas being improving integration between tools and timeline, and an attempt to make nested clips available.

Flowblade Main Features

Keybord trimming with arrow keys Trim positions can now be moved using arrow keys and trim edit confirmed with pressing Enter key. This is often more convenient and previse then always working with a mouse
Clip Snapping Clips and compositors will now snap to clip ends on adjacent tracks when clips or compositors are moved or their ends dragged.
Clips display media thumbnails This helps differentiating clips from each other on timeline.
EDL export is now available. Thanks to Github user tin2tin for extensive testing on software not available on my system. Unfortunately it became clear that Blender EDL import is buggy.
G'MIC Film Emulation Filters

G'MIC Effects tool got an important capability update with the addition of film emulation filters.

G'MIC Film Emulation Filters change the tones and gamma of the image to resemble different film stocks. Where as other color correction filters available in Flowblade work with luma or R,G,B LUTs, film emulation filters employ much bigger LUTs which are applied to the 3D color space of the image, and can achieve more detailed changes.

The results have been quite nice during testing; it is often possible to achive subtle effects that greatly improve the look of the material.


In this cycle we got the largest amount of contributions per cycle so far.

Hungarian translation was provided by Péter Gábor. These take a big amount work and we're always happy to receive a new one.
Play/pause toggle with single button functionality was provided by Github user dvdlvr. This has been asked before so a portion of users probably likes it better like. The new behaviour needs to be activated from Preferences
Titler remembers last save directory patch by Martin Mois. Before the user needed to always navigate away from the default folder when saving titles.
New anti-aliased the monitor control icons and modified the clear marks icon by Github user bergamote improve visuals on that part of the GUI.
