Kdenlive is a non-linear video editor for GNU/Linux and Windows, which supports DV, HDV and AVCHD(not complete yet) editing. Kdenlive relies on several other open source projects like FFmpeg and the MLT video framework. It was designed to answer all needs, from basic video editing to semi-professionnal work.

Kdenlive 19.04.1 released
by farid a. | May 11, 2019 | GSOC, News, Releases | 0 comments

The Kdenlive team is happy to announce the first minor release of the 19.04 series fixing 39 bugs. The feedback by the community as well as the effort put in reporting issues has been very helpful and we encourage to keep it up. We expect to finish polishing in the coming months in order to focus on our planned pro features.

Kdenlive 19.04.1 fixes some important issues, so all 19.x users are encouraged to upgrade. Easiest way to test it is through the AppImage, available from the KDE servers as usual:

The Appimage also contains some last minute fixes that will be in 19.04.2 since we are still busy fixing some remaining issues after our big refactoring. This Appimage should fix the rendering and timeline preview issues recently reported, and the 19.04.1 fixes are listed below.

Other news: work continues to improve OpenGL support, fixes by the team have been merged into MLT improving speed and the Titler will be rewritten as a GSOC project.

Review by Paulus on Dec 19, 2018 Version: 18.12 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 3/10

The best open source non-linear video editor.
It works better on linux, but it's understandable, I think it's a KDE program ported in Windows not long time ago.

Just because you don't know what an appimage is and don't know how to "install" or "uninstall" portable software on Windows, that doesn't mean there is something wrong with the program and should be rated with 1.
It's just your lack of knowledge, in fact you should be rated with 1 as a user, not Kdenlive as a program.

Es el software open-source de edición de video más completo y estable para windows 64-bit.

@ mickey:
Giving this software a bad rating because you are unable to perform the basic task of unpacking a zip-file and don't even realize that an Appimage is only meant to be run on a Linux OS sounds neither cunning nor convincing...

That said, I find Kdenlive a very promising video editor with lots of options. I would certainly like it even more if eventually the known bug would be fixed which makes it so far unusable under Windows: You can only start/stop the playback in the timeline and the preview window two times before it stops working. I hope the refactoring will get rid of this behaviour once and for all!
