Kdenlive 19.04.3 is out
by farid a. | Jul 12, 2019 | News, Releases | 0 comments

While the team is out for a much deserved summer break the last minor release post-refactoring is out with another huge amount of fixes. The highlights include fixing compositing and speed effect regressions, thumbnail display issues of clips in the timeline and many Windows fixes. With this release we finished polishing the rough edges and now we can focus on adding new features while fixing other small details left. As usual you can get the latest AppImage from our download page.

Speaking of that, the next major release is less than a month away and it already has some cool new features implemented like changing the speed of a clip by ctrl + resize and pressing shift and hover over a thumb of a clip in the Project Bin to preview it. Weíve also bumped the Qt version to 5.12.4 and updated to the latest MLT. You can grab it from here to test it.

I have to give this a big fat fail! It won't open in macOS Mojave. It probably has an unmet dependency, but if that's the case, the Mac install package should either install them, or come with a readme.txt that instructs the user on what dependencies are needed and how to install them... I used to really like this package in Ubuntu Linux.

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.
