Pulseaudio support. Sample accurate keyframes for audio plugins. Better synchronization between the audio plugins & the playhead. Right click on an edit to get an info box. The ever present bug fixes.


1/22/19 - Cinelerra 7.1 Exporting of H.265 video in Quicktime. Seeking for MKV/WEBM files. More bugs fixed.


10/12/17 - Cinelerra 7 Optimized playback of large format video. H.265 decoding. Optimized screen capturing. Spherical camera blending. Eyedropper can show the maximum value. Interpolating CR2 images always white balances. Watch Secrets of Cinelerra. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEQ4Cve3_-M

11/11/15 - Cinelerra 4.6.1 Updated the x264 compressor library. Improved the mp3 decoding. Video scaling is now either nearest neighbor or bicubic, but never linear. Proxy editing got a start before discovering modern PCs can easily decode 4k.


9/8/14 - Cinelerra 4.6 Split pane editing. OpenGL supported on Intel HD. Titler improvements. Bugfixes.


10/31/13 - Cinelerra 4.5 Speed curves mainly for video & in degraded quality for audio. Some control over whether automation follows edits.

10/15/10 - Cinelerra 4.2 has arrived.

Mainly a bugfix & personal need release. Of main interest might be the "Edit->Align edits" feature, which aligns all the audio edits with the video.
Then there's the keyframe spanning feature, where highlighting a region with keyframe generation on causes effect tweeks to span all the keyframes.
Then there's the fact that all assets are opened in subprocesses so they don't bring down the entire program when they crash.

2.0 091205

Notes:
H.264 Video, MPEG-4 Audio and Video encoding in Quicktime, compatible with Quicktime player. - The ffmpeg front end has been improved to where it generates useful quality. - Certain frame rates and compression options don't work in Win.

Refurbished MPEG table of contents. - Tables of contents now detect changes in PID. - Tables of contents are created twice as fast. - Load any MPEG or IFO file with video in Cinelerra and a table of contents is automatically created. - Audio indexes are created simultaneously with MPEG tables of contents. - Still possible to create permanent tables of contents with mpeg3toc. - Using MPEG files in a renderfarm still requires mpeg3toc due to the fact that the automatic .toc files are hidden.

Fewer lockups when resizing video window.
Fewer crashes due to socket timeouts in background rendering.
Directory search boxes only contain relevant information for directories.
Hourglass displayed in main window during time consuming operations.
Having shared effect off but sharing instance on doesn't create mono sound anymore.
Tool options get closed when CWindow is closed.
Picture settings retained after recording from V4L2. Workaround for V4L2 driver where 2 different picture settings must be uploaded.
Bitrate displayed in asset info box.
64 bit plugins are stored in /usr/lib64 so 64 bit executables can be run on the same systems as 32 bit executables without renaming the directory.
Color picker in compositor window allows selecting colors from the output frame for use in effects.
Refurbushed chroma key: - uses color cube instead of hue for color comparison - uses the color picker to select the color
Support for raw digital camera importing. - Uses dcraw to decode the images into floating point RGB. - tested on Canon .cr2 and .tiff files. - Linearize effect is provided to convert gamma values.
White balance function in colorbalance effect. - Select the grey color in the compositor window. - Hit the white balance button.

YUV 16 bit colormodels have been depreciated. The only practical colormodels have been 8 bit and floating point. Even with raw sensor data, the precision needs to be higher to handle the gamma correction.

Difference key using different tracks.
Undo buffers use compression to reduce memory usage.
Undo supports effect tweeks.
Nudge textboxes are ganged.
Mouse wheel changes nudge value.

Holding CTRL when doing any playback operation causes the in/out points to be used for the playback range.

Moved from the unified camera and projector keyframes to discrete x and y curves.
- Z was already made discrete out of necessary utility.
- Too much information was drawn on the Compositor window.
- The timeline functionality is extended to better handle curves.

Alt+up and Alt+down zoom the automation vertically.

Dedicated window provided for selecting which automation overlays to show.

The problem with virtual filesystem: - VFS was developed back when we wanted to use some high powered servers but didn't have root access to mount filesystems on them. That situation ended and it was taking an enourmous amount of effort to work VFS around the number of strange things libraries do like accessing megabytes using fgetc. VFS has now been phased out.

Fixed lockups due to MWindow locking CWindow when MWindow was still locked.
Fixed problems loading ulaw sound files.

Tip of the day shown.
Filebox supports deleting files and refreshing.
Extra zoom levels added to Compositor window.

Highlighted region overrides in/out points if it is nonzero length.

Blond theme has not been updated. Instead it has been replaced by the SUV theme. The SUV theme is extremely manly and dark and should make the media stand out more.

MPEG4 audio decodes on x86_64. Had to put stdint.h in faad.h and change all the unsigned long to uint32_t because those structures were redefined in structs.h with uint32_t.

Channel changing for Video4Linux2 ported to kernel 2.6.7. Automatic channel scanning and sorting is supported for the 1 guy who still uses these cards.

Pressing ALT while clicking in cropping window causes translation of all 4 cropping points.

Rotation effect supports a variable pivot and drawing of the pivot in the frame.

DV support migrated to latest API rewrite: libIEC61883

MPEG video encoding provides a graphical interface for YUV 4:2:0 encoding on the mjpegtools version of mpeg2enc.

The audio playback options support a global offset for audio synchronization. This doesn't affect the audio playback or the rendering. It just compensates for inaccuracy in the Linux sound drivers.

The ALSA options allow compensation for lockups at end of playback depending on the ALSA version, soundcard, and ALSA rewrite.

Press Tab while the cursor is anywhere over a track to toggle the track arming status. Press Shift-Tab while the cursor is over a track to toggle the arming status of every other track.

Resample effect changed to match the behavior of the Reframe effects.
Scale factors > 1 shorten the length of the audio.


1.2.1 (2004-08-11)

Changes:
Theme images stored as elf binaries instead of concatenated png files.
Project filename restored from backups.
Proper frame being read out of cache for frame advance.
Automatically repositions when loading new file to top left of timeline.
Presets in Set Format for quick reconfiguration.
Transition lengths adjusted for frame rate changes.
Keyframes for effects are hidden if edits are collapsed.

Compressor works better. Readahead option removed. Delay removed.
Setting reaction time negative provides readahead now. Also a
smoothing only option renders the just loudness for academic uses.

Realtime time stretch and reframe for video.
Time average now supports accumulation and doesn't require reading ahead.

ALSA buffer underruns handled better for 2.6.7.
ALSA synchronization and interrupts handled better.
32 bit option in ALSA.
Backup fonts in case primary fonts don't exist.
Sound levels over 0 DB show in meters with a new max level setting.
DenoiseFFT debug

New event propogation system should reduce the number of lockups due to
repeat events.

Faster meter responsiveness.

Migrated to DV1394 version 2.6.7 for DV capture.
Migrated the Video 4 Linux 2 JPEG driver to Video 4 Linux 2 JPEG version 2.6.7.
Partially supported uncompressed Video 4 Linux 2 version 2.6.7 but need new frequency table.
Linux 2.4 is depreciated.

RGB floating point color space.
RGB 16 removed.
OpenEXR support
Floating point TIFF.

Higher precision in YUV/RGB conversions.
Greyscale JPEGs imported properly.

CD ripper accepts ending tracks higher than the total tracks. Put in
100 for the ending track to get the entire disk.

Race conditions in certain dialog box openings removed.

Quicktime: faster writing since write buffer is disabled while writing
data.
Quicktime: floating point color conversions
