VidCutter 6.0.0 changelog:

  • MAJOR FEATURE: video filters menu option added to app menu accessed via right-click or the bottom-right menu button. the first filter available is BLACKDETECT which automatically creates clips in your clip index based around black scene changes that are detected. Selecting the filter once a media file has been loaded will prompt for a black scene minimum duration in seconds, allowing you to tweak the black frame sensitivity to reduce or increase the amount of scenes detected. This is mainly useful for skipping commercials (e.g. comskip) or auto-detecting scene transitions. More filters will be added in future updates.
  • MAJOR FEATURE: automatic chapters created per clip in your list. enabled by default and can be toggled via Settings -> General and a new toggle button in the left hand side group of the UI buttons.
  • MAJOR FEATURE: chapter names can be edited from their default set values via new edit chapter option when right-clicking on a clip in your list. All clip will default to "Chapter " as their default text which is what a media center or half-decent player will display in menu and you are able to skip directly to each clip point using standard previous/next buttons (if they are set in their default state, obviously)
  • External media file joins (when wanting to just join a set of files using the the ADD button under the Video Index) are fixed; the last version broke this once timeline progressbars were added. Progress for external joins is displayed in progressbars overlaying associated clips directly in the Clip Index which replaces timeline progressbar functionality when all clips are external (i.e. not loaded via Open Media thus not associated with a project)
  • Added new "Enable use of PBOs" setting under the Video category for use of pixel buffer objects when rendering OpenGL video. Used for noticeable performance improvements when working with huge/4K media files.

  • Fixed a bug caused when removing a clip with a start time but no end time from your index.

  • OSD (on-screen display) text defined for all user actions + standardised OSD case and wording/format.

  • Main clip list's scrolling mode changed to per pixel for smoother vertical scrolling and no snapping of clips as they are scrolled into view.

  • snap + Flatpak manifests completed w/ app now available from respective stores and repos (i.e + These builds come prepacked with the very latest releases of FFmpeg, libmpv, MediaInfo as well as the UI libraries for Qt5 and PyQt5.

  • Fixed clip index heading not extending to full width of list when it becomes scrollable when more than 4 clips are added to the index.

  • LINUX: all icons, desktop, mime-type, appstream related files has have been renamed to domain based app-id (com.ozmartians.VidCutter) as per freedesktop specs. updates made to support this across the vast array of deploy/build scripts. makes things much more tidy and less error prone in AppImage, Flatpak and Snap package build scripts.

  • UI improvements to media stream dialog; most consistent across differing desktop sizes and stream configurations

  • Flatpak: Qt 5.11 + dependency updates + NVIDIA h/w decoding fixes
