v21.04 ALPHA/UNSTABLE

Download from https://github.com/mltframework/shotcut/releases/tag/v21.02.09

Here is a sneak preview of one of the things planned for version 21.04 (April)

Time Remapping!
To use it you must choose a clip with NO B-frames (that is a video encoding terminology). If you try to use it on a such clip you will be blocked by a dialog asking you to use Properties > Convert on it.

After that, it is basically Filters > Time > Time Remap > Keyframes. Go to this forum post for more information.

Rating by Dan Gerald on Sep 4, 2020 Version: 20.09.01 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10




Audio time stretch only in full pro-cent value steps. It is not enough precise for align it to the video duration.

Review by Royalstar on Apr 26, 2020 Version: Shotcut 20.04.12 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 3/10 Functionality: 3/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 3/10




Spent 15 min to edit a TV movie Recording to remove commercials and selected a 1280x720 MKV file and after 15 min. it was only at 1% and no way to see the progress?????? Even the freeware out there does that. Uninstalled it and would not recommend it as it is WAY too SLOW. vidcoder will do it in less tha 50 min for a TV movie.

Stay away from version 2019.09 Beta if you are exporting to x265. The videos do not play well in many devices. I didn't have the same issue with version 2019.08.16.

Linux version (appimage) does not run on Debian 8 (Jessie) as claimed on the developer's site (at least not on mine). It depends on GLIBCXX 3.4.21 which isn't supported by Debian 8.
