AviDemux 2.8.0 (64-bit)


Avidemux is a free video editor designed for simple cutting, filtering and encoding tasks. It supports many file types, including AVI, DVD compatible MPEG files, MP4 and ASF, using a variety of codecs. Tasks can be automated using projects, job queue and powerful scripting capabilities. Avidemux is available for Linux, BSD, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows under the GNU GPL license.

AviDemux 2.8.0 release notes:


  • The part of video preceding the presentation time of the first frame is now excluded from created segment, making all videos appear as if they "start at zero".
  • When saving video, the frame matching the B marker is now excluded from the exported range. Therefore, if the B marker is set to the last frame of the video, it needs to be reset to the full duration for the last frame to be included into the output.
  • Loading Matroska files with HEVC video tracks takes longer as slice headers are decoded to detect the frame type.

New Video Filters

  • Analyzer
  • Blur (on selected area)
  • Cartoon
  • Color balance (adjust shadow, midtone and highlight)
  • Chroma hold (monochrome effect with kept colors)

  • Deband (reduce banding artifacts)
  • DelogoHQ (clean up arbitrary shaped logo)
  • Dynamic threshold
  • Fade from first image
  • Fade in (combination of multiple effects)
  • Fade out (combination of multiple effects)
  • Fade through (combination of multiple effects)
  • Fit to size (resize and pad to the specified size)
  • Flip (vertically/horizontally flip the image)
  • Grid (video wall effect)
  • Image stabilizer (reduce camera shakiness)
  • Luma stabilizer (reduce flickering)
  • Mirror
  • Posterize
  • Quadrilateral transformation (four point transform)
  • Wavelet denoiser
  • Wavelet sharpener
  • Zoom (partializable crop filter)
