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.

Fixes Issue #990

Flowblade v2.8.0.1

Fix release for Issue #987.

Date: February 9, 2021

In this development cycle we focused on making the application more configurable. Among other new features we made panels layout, keyboard shortcuts and middlebar customizable.

For the first time it is now possible to change the layout of the application by moving panels to different positions using View->Panel Placement submenu. Currently the feature is only available for screens with resolution of 1680 x 1050 and up.

Application look'n'feel was updated by adding two new custom themes.

Flowblade Neutral is a dark theme with equal RGB values for all hues providing a neutral backgroud. Screenshot

Flowblade Gray is a dark theme with very light blue tint. Screenshot

Previous default theme remains available as Flowblade Blue.

jep-fa provided a feature allowing users to select which items in Middlebar are displayed and in which order. Feature is available by selecting View->Middlebar layout->Free Bar and then View->Middlebar layout->Configure Free Bar....

A subset of keyboard shortcuts can now be changed. From the hamburger menu in Keyboard Shortcuts dialog select Add Custom Shortcuts Group and click on gear icons to set shortcuts.

User can now optionally use Tool Dock widget to select Timeline Edit Tools instead of the middlebar drop down menu.

Filter panel was updated. The previous left size Filter Stack and Filter Selection list boxes were removed in favor of the more common approach of having Filter Edit Panels themselves being arranged in stack.

Filter Selection panel was moved to right side of the Timeline. User can add filters by double clicking on filter items or by doing a drag-and-drop on top of Timeline Clips.

jep-fa provided a set colored of icons to be optionally used in the Middlebar with Николай Смольянинов providing some additional contributions. The feature provides a differentiated, bright and colorful look for users who prefer it.

Relink a directory feature for Media Relinker contributed by jep-fa
GitHub Actions build workflow contributed by Dan Dennedy.
Fix broken 'ui' object references in Nathan Rosenquist.
startup: support usr-merge by sgn.
Don't use legacy directory for Appstream metadata City-busz.
jep-fa created a new French language user manual with large amount of up-to-date screenshots and icons shown and explained. The manual is substantially longer and more detailed then the current user manual and it might very well be worth the effort to translate this to English to use it as the new project official user guide.

Николай Смольянинов updated the Russian translation

jep-fa updated the French translation

micitabesh updated the Ukrainian translation

Stanisław Polak updated the Polish translation

MultipartFilterObject filters were decracated and replaced with standard filters.

Cutting clips now keep filters and mute state of original clips on both new clips.

Gradient and Shadow blur features were added into Titler.

Color Picker feature for selecting colors from monitor was added into color selection widgets.

In next cycle we plan among other things to improve the current rendering functionality and create a new scripting tool for creating custom effects, transitions and rendered backgrounds.
