Tool Description Type Rating Comment

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 1.4
Date: November 24, 2015

Flowblade 1.4 is the tenth release of Flowblade and the first release after the GTK3 port.

Most main features in this release are changes to editing model that are designed to make editing more approachable and quicker. It is also notable that a large part of the main features were based on user requests, a first for the project.

In the next release cycle features that will be attempted include a G'MIC effects scripting tool, a node compositor tool using an existing code base, a first launch tips window for new users, and a clip snapping feature.

In 2016 there will probably be 3-4 releases, and the next release 1.6 is targeted for March. There will be some reports on progress in the Flowblade Google+ group.

Main Features in this release

Fade/Transition cover delete feature was added. Selecting a single rendered fade/transition clip and pressing delete will cause the deleted area to covered using material from adjacent clips if such meterial is available. This makes working with single track transitions/fades faster. Previous delete behaviour can be restored using a preference option.

Clip ends drag with Control + Right mouse. When a move tool - Insert, Overwrite or Spacer - is selected clips ends can now be dragged to change clip's length. This is useful when for example a clip in a multitrack composition needs to made longer to cover a clip track below. Clips end drags perform overwrite on empty/blank regions and insert on media regions of timeline.

Drag'n'drop overwrite action on non-V1 tracks has been added. Dropping on track V1 works like before, but on non-V1 tracks:

clip will be inserted if dropped on a clip
clip will overwrite available blank and empty space and will perform insert for the length of media frames that would be overwritten.
This makes creating multitrack compositions faster.Previous Drag'n'drop behaviour can be restored using a preference option.

Always on audio levels display functionality was added. Before the audio levels could only be displayd on request, but now it possible to have audio levels rendered on background and displayed as soon as they are available

Filters can now be copy/pasted from one clip to another. It has been possible to copy paste clips on timeline for quite a while, but now this feature was made more discovarable by adding menu items for the functionality.
