Shotcut 18.09.13 changelog:

Timeline

  • Added Ripple support for moving clips including Ripple All Tracks.
  • When Ripple is on and you move a clip to the right, it now
  • ripples (pushes) all the clips to the right instead of making a transition
  • (including the Ripple All Tracks option).
  • Added Ctrl+R keyboard shortcut to toggle Timeline Ripple,
  • Ctrl+Alt+R to toggle Ripple All Tracks, and
  • Ctrl+Shift+R to toggle both.
  • Improved Snapping behavior on the Timeline.
  • Added Ctrl+P keyboard shortcut to toggle Snapping.
  • Added Reset Track Height (Ctrl+0) to the Timeline menu.

Filters

  • Added a Timer video filter.
  • Added support for negative rotation to the Rotate and Scale filter.
  • Added Shake 1 Second - Scaled and Shake 1 Second - Unscaled presets
  • to the Size and Position filter.

Other

  • Added a Text clip to the Open Other dialog.
  • This is a convenience item that creates a transparent Color clip with a
  • Text filter.
  • Added Extract Sub-clip to Properties menu for audio/video clip.
  • Added Export presets for WebM VP8 and VP9 with alpha channel.

Stability Fixes

  • Fixed a crash when quickly changing clip selections in the Timeline.
  • Improved closing Shotcut more reliably and the behavior of multiple shotcut
  • processes.
  • Fixed Undo beyond Remove Track may crash.
  • Fixed a crash when moving a clip after undoing a transition.
  • Fixed a crash loading project after some sequence of inserting and removing tracks.
  • Fixed a crash loading an image with the wrong filename extension.
  • Fixed OS audio device changes may cause Shotcut to hang.
  • Fixed crash dragging simple keyframes beyond the edges of the clip.
  • The 32-bit Windows build can use more memory to reduce risk of crash:
  • 3 GiB on 32-bit Windows and 4 GiB on 64-bit Windows.

Bug Fixes

  • Improved behavior of opening WebP images.
  • Fixed advanced keyframes for the Size and Position filter.
  • Fixed inserted and then hidden video tracks become audio tracks after
  • re-opening the project.
  • Fixed changing Video Mode from Automatic to something else with
  • nothing opened.
  • Fixed moving a transition to another track leaves a hidden clip on the old track.
  • Fixed trimming the out point of a timeline clip may change the in point of
  • the following clip.
  • Fixed Properties > Speed, Convert, Reverse, and
  • More Information does not work sometimes after reloading a project.
  • Fixed reliability of changing size and position fields with keyframes
  • in Size and Position and Text filters.
  • Fixed trimming outward with Ripple All Tracks moved clips on other tracks
  • in the wrong direction.
  • Fixed audio waveforms still appear on muted tracks after adding a track.

Image Fidelity

  • Fixed edges of text with the Text filter may get cut off (clipped).
  • Fixed Size and Position and Rotate and Scale filters may leave black
  • right and bottom edge of frame.
  • Fixed trimming a timeline clip with Fade In/Out Video filters
  • with "Adjust opacity instead of fade with black" enabled.
  • Fixed Export may change the actual frame rate and cause timing errors.
  • Fixed reducing the Frame/sec in Export causes timing errors in the output.

Changes

  • Removed the Compositing toggle icon from the Timeline track head. Now,
  • it is located in the track Properties as Blend mode with a None option.
  • In the 3D Text filter, replaced the Droid fonts with Liberation due to an
  • incompatible license.

Faster

There is not much speed improvement. Most of the improvement
comes from a fix to prevent an incomplete shutdown. In the case of the 32-bit
Windows build, since more memory can be accessed now, we have removed some of
(not all) multi-threading limits.

  • Improved the performance of changing filter parameters and scrubbing.
  • Limit the number of background thumbnail and waveform generation threads to 4.
  • Prevent trying to generate audio levels for waveforms for still images and
  • other silent sources.
