Recent Releases

2.2.021 Dec 2016 10:45 major feature: Happy Holidays to all the OpenShot supporters around the world! I am very proud to announce the latest and greatest release of OpenShot (version 2.2) has just arrived, and is ready to edit all your holiday videos! It s faster, more stable, and better than ever! Performance / Caching Over the past few months, improvements to performance have been my top priority. In some cases, performance is improved more than 10x compared to OpenShot 2.1. Adding huge images to your timeline is now fully optimized, and won t slow you down. Editing HD videos (5K, 4K, 2.5K, and 1080p) is vastly improved. A new caching engine was built from the ground up, and supports both memory and disk back-ends, depending on the user s needs. This can be configured in the Preferences, under Cache . Also, opening huge projects (with hundreds of files / clips) has been optimized and is up to 10x faster. Improved Stability Many critical bugs have been fixed related to seeking, missing frame detection, and AVPacket scope, which results in a much more stable engine, especially on slower systems. Also, compatibility has been improved for Linux AppImage and OS X (10.9+) App Bundles. Keyframe Enhancements Keyframes are used in the animation system in OpenShot, and have received some major upgrades. Support for CSS syntax (quadratic bezier curves) now allows a -based approach to setting the curve handles. This is very useful, and better than the previously hard-coded values. Also, 28 curve presets have been added for common things like ease-in/out, bounce, etc Many other improvements have been made to Keyframes, such as better undo/redo support when dragging property values (in the property editor), rendering color keyframes on the timeline, and improved frame detection when using the property editor (i.e. adding a keyframe for the currently selected frame).
2.1.030 Aug 2016 14:11 major feature: I am proud to announce the release of OpenShot 2.1, which contains a huge number of new features, bug fixes, and improvements! Many stability and performance related improvements have been made, including multiple memory leak fixes, but we also found time to add some really fun and highly requested features, such as audio waveform aupport, improved property editing, new selection dropdown, user-configurable keyboard mappings, Windows 64-bit support, timeline improvements, new tutorial system, slice all at playhead, and huge performance gains with effects.
