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 2.16.1
Fixes logging bug breaking motion tracking create.

This was one of the shortest development cycles we've had. We had some interesting stuff ready, and with summer coming along a meaninfully larger feature set would have pushed the release past August, so we decided to go with what we have now.

Motion tracking is now available. The feature was implemented using 3 different filters: one filter to produce motion tracking data, one filter to apply that data as motion of other image element and one filter that provides means to create filter masks to e.g. blur a person's face in a shot. More info here.

Stabilizing was implemented using a single filter and a user initiated rendering task to create the needed stabilizing data file. More info here.

Four new Filter Masks are available: Alpha Shape Motion Tracked, Image Alpha, Image Luma or Color Select. Alpha Shape Motion Tracked is used to implement the motion tracked filter mask feature.

New Rubberband Octave Shift audio filter.

New Rubberband Pitch Scale audio filter. These filters provide slightly differing means of adjusting the audio pitch using the Rubberband library.

Move selected Media Items feature It is now possible to re-arrange Media Items in Bins.
