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.

18.08 Beta
Kdenlive: test the future
by Jean-Baptiste Mardelle | Jul 4, 2018 | News | 0 comments

After more than 1.5 years of work, we are planning to release the refactoring version of Kdenlive in august, part of the KDE 18.08 Applications release. But taking such a decision is not easy. Most of the code was rewritten, which also means many possible regressions. So while we are very excited to have the opportunity to finally release our work to the public, itís also a bit stressful. So what now ?

Well thatís where we need you. The latest refactoring code has been published as an AppImage, and we need some feedback. So you can help us by downloading the latest AppImage, and try it on your computer (just download the file, make it executable through your file manager and run it).

Improvements and new features include:

Clips with video and audio are now automatically separated when dropped in timeline
All clip types in timeline can now easily be disabled/enabled
Slowmotion should work reliably
The long standing issue where moving groups of clips corrupted timeline should be gone
Most effects now use a common keyframe interface
Insert/lift/overwrite should work reliably
Easily share your rendered video through KDEís Purpose library (YouTube, NextCloud, Twitter, Kde connect,Ö) requires a recent KF5 environment, not enabled on the AppImage.
It is now possible to generate lower resolution clips for the timeline preview to have a faster rendering
Resizable track height
Several overlay guides available for each monitor
New keyboard layouts can be installed in 1 click (we need help to create interesting layouts)
And most importantly, the code is now much cleaner and ready for new features.

You should be able to create new projects, add clips, move them in the timeline, add effects and compositions, and render your projects. But there are still a number of known issues that we are working on:

Compatibility with older kdenlive project files is not perfect
The curves effect does not work (Bťzier curves works)
Composition settings donít update on resize
A performance issue in audio thumbnails causes major slowdowns on high zoom levels
Some feedback on this beta version would be really appreciated. So please help us, test this AppImage version and let us know what you think of it. You can leave comments in this post, or on our mailing list, and we will soon organize a bug squashing day to make this release as reliable as possible!

So we hope to hear from you soon!

@ 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!

May 13, 2018 Version: 18.04.1d OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 7/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value for money: 9/10 Overall: 7/10

I could not even run the installer or unzip it, I did not use 7-Zip but had to download to this application, it still did not work. The test was with the 7-zip link on the developer's website, where I also found a mirror for download in WinRar that also did not work. Tests were done with older versions as well. I am not aware of this extension APPImage which the computer also has not recognized as installer.exe I leave a final note waiting for corrections.
I leave a final note for not having an intuitive installer for W7 32bits.

I'll try the updated version W32 BITS and come back to take a final note.

May 7, 2018 Version: 18.04.0 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value for money: 5/10 Overall: 5/10

Great software!
But I found some bugs in my windows version. At first melt.exe is in default settings pointing to share folder instead to root folder of kdenlive. It caused problem no mlt installed. So I have to point to root folder by myself. And I didnt find anything about it on net, so I nearly delete the program. Another problem is, when I select path to file/folder in configuration kdenlive, there is white font white background. It seems to me bit stupid. But it is good if it is because of security, what i doubt :D
Otherwise everything is perfect.
