OpenShot 2.5.1 Released | Optimized Effects & Improved Performance!
Written by Jonathan on March 3, 2020 in Releases.

OpenShot 2.5.1 About Screen
With faster performance, huge optimizations with effects, and improved UTF-8 character support, OpenShot 2.5.1 is the best version yet, bringing powerful and simple video editing to the open-source world!

The OpenShot team has been very busy over the past few weeks, and we are proud to release OpenShot 2.5.1! While we don't normally release so quickly, we had a show-stopping bug with version 2.5.0 (mostly related to UTF-8 support of non-ASCII characters), and decided to put out a fix as quickly as possible. However, we were also able to "sneak in" some really awesome improvements at the same time!

Misc Bug Fixes

UTF-8 Project Encoding
A large regression with handling file paths was discovered after the release of OpenShot 2.5.1. Not only did non-ASCII paths fail to save, the *.OSP project file was corrupted in the save process. Yikes. This has been resolved (thanks FeRD and SuslikV), and not only is the bug fixed, but opening these corrupted *.OSP project files with version 2.5.1 will also fix the corruption automatically! I am happy to report that this fix has been tested on Windows, Linux, and Mac, and works great now, especially with non-ASCII file paths!

Effects Performance
Many effects have been optimized and parallelized, which takes advantage of multi-core processors. This results in many magnitudes of improvement for these effects (or at least most of them). Real-time previews are also notizably improved when effects are involved.

Saturation Effect: Optimize and Parallelize
Hue Effect: Optimize and Parallelize
Blur Effect: Optimize and Parallelize
Wave Effect: Optimize and Parallelize
Brightness Effect: Optimize and Parallelize
Pixelate Effect: Rewrite effect to use QPainter/QRect

Improved Documentation & Translations
Lots of documentation improvements, including new examples, updated syntax, better formatting, and a new auto-doc-update system, which updates our https://www.openshot.org/user-guide/ anytime a change is committed. Updated translations and supporters are also included, with improved language support for many languages.

Did you know that helping make OpenShot better is really fun, and we are always in need of volunteers, testers, suggestions, GitHub support, translators, and contributors of all kinds! Please introduce yourself to me at hello@openshot.org, and let's chat about how we can work together!

Actually - waste of time. Random crashes. Can't export - crashes again.
Not recommended to even try it.

I like the idea and the look of it, but in use the interface is clunky and counter-instinctive, e.g. it is very fiddly trying to find a particular frame to mark and then cut. The audio is not visible by default and it is very slow to scan a clip to show it. On a fast PC with lots of RAM it should fly smoothly, but it doesn't. It can open off-air HD h.264 TS files, but it stutters and locks up frequently when editing them.

Review by Anand on Apr 27, 2019 Version: 2.4.4 OS: Linux Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10




Having used much older versions of the program which crashed every few minutes, I was impressed when I edited and exported a video with no problems in about ten minutes

I then tried to make a slide show using around 30 jpg photos and a music track but after trying to fiddle with transitions, the program froze completely. I couldn't close it and didn't know about killw at that stage so I restarted the computer.

When I restarted I tried to open Openshot but it flashed instantly and then closed each time. I thought if I removed my project source files it would be ok, but now while I can open the program I am in a permanent loop demanding I find the directory for the files, but with no 'cancel' option or ability to access the main menu and start a new project. I downloaded the daily update to see if this might make a difference but that is no different.

I am not sure what to do next as somewhere the AppImage file has made start up files but despite lots of searches in system files I cannot find these.
