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 1.14
Date: October 4, 2017

Flowblade 1.14 is the fifteenth release of Flowblade. This release had probably more new features then any release since the initial release 0.6. New functionality like sequence combining, compound clips and audio syncing take the application to the next level as a complete editing solution.

Especially sequence combining feature together with existing features like Range Log make Flowblade easily the most advanced and featureful FLOSS tool for projects with long complex edits and large amounts of media.

Improved user feedback has also made possible to refine many areas of functionality beoynd original design.

Audio Syncing
Python module by Martin Schitter and Benjamin M. Schwartz has made it possible to offer functionality that syncs media items based on their audio data. We have two new features offering Audio Syncing functionality.

Timeline Audio Syncing Now you can select two clips on timeline and request one of them to be moved so that clips' audio is synced on timeline. This makes it possible to do multicamera editing on timeline, one needs to manually set video mute on/off on tracks to see all tracks, but the workflow is possible now.

Audio Synced Compound Clips User can select a video and audio clip and create an audio synced compound clip media item from them. This is useful e.g. when audio is recorded separately and video clip only has some help audio.

Combining Sequences
It is possible to import full contents of another Sequence into the Sequence currently being edited. There are two ways provided to combine sequences:

Imported sequence can be appended at the end of current sequence.
Imported sequence can be spliced in at the playhead position.
This long overdue feature will make having multiple sequences per project a much more useful and flexible tool when building complex programs from smaller parts.

Compound Clips
A Compound Clip is a single clip created by combining multiple clips and compositors in to a single media item. Compound Clips are useful when some complex sequence is more conveniently handled as a single unit.

Compound Clip from Selection feature creates a Compound Clip from currently selected clips into a Compound Clip.
Compound Clip from Sequence feature creates a Compound Clip from current full contents of the timeline.
Audio Synced Compound Clip, see above.
Fade in/out
We have two new features addressing user requests for speeding up the process of creating fade in and fade out transitions.

Fade Compositors These are special new compositors that will automatically on creation place themselves at the beginning or end of clips and do not need any keyframe manipulation; lengths of fades are changed by changing the lengths of compositors.
Add Fade buttons Compositors panel now has Add Fade In and Add Fade Out buttons that will create keyframes that define a fade of desired length in a single click.
User Selectable Keyboard shortcuts
Steven van de Beek contributed code that makes it possible to have user defined keyboard shortcuts. In this release we offer a possibility to select between two predefined sets of shortcuts, and fully configurable keyboard shortcuts will be made available in the future.

Tools development
Reverse clips tool
We now offer a new tool to create reverse clips of user selectable speed from media items.

Titler got two new features:

Text drop shadow
Text outline
Disk cache management
Disk cache management window provides GUI tool for deleting saved hidden files that could eventually consume noticable amounts of disk space.

We got a new new Cantonese translation by 老吴的BOX.

We got fully up to date translations for 1.14 in Russian, Polish and Czezh by Николай Смольянинов, Stanisław Polak and Pavel Fric respectively.

Future directions
During next cycle work continues roughly as outlined in road map and Issues list at Github.

Translations workflow update is definately in the plans. The current workflow is difficult and outdated when there are several web solutions that are likely preferable to all translations contributors.

Next cycle will also see move to spending more development time on some upstream issues that can take a bit of time to come through as available features in the application, expecially on installationss from distro repositories.

We will probably continue with the 6 month release cycle, but a shorter one is possible if certain planned improvements come together quickly enough.
