Improved stability, improved undo/redo system, new freeze preset menu, new export settings (video only, audio only, image sequences)
2.3.319 May 2017 06:25
- New release! Bumping version to 2.3.3, and libopenshot depenency to 0.1.6
- Adding CFBundlePackageType key to Info.plist, and symlinking a few files which I don't think are considered executable in the AppBundle. This is an experiment.
- Updated supporters and donors file
- Updated translations and improved translation test script (which validates all string replacements are found in translations)
- Fixed SpaceMovie 3D animated title alpha keyframes, and adjusted the position of the main title to be better centered when it appears.
- Fixing bug when selecting effect on a clip (where selection dropdown would not populate)
- Fixed bug on certain systems when loading list of all supported languages. Fixed backup recovery issue which would not refresh the timeline on load. Fixed bug destroying the lock file (if another process already deleted the lock file). Added c++ exception parsing from archived exception data.
- Improvements to error parsing script
- Adding a script to parse and aggregate error logs for OpenShot
- Another attempt to fix the race condition causing the "zipimport.ZipImportError: can't decompress data; zlib not available" when launching a frozen version of OpenShot. Also fixing a common error on the title editor (caused by a missing font-style).
- Protecting query classes more, to prevent invalid clip/tran/effect ids from crashing
- Removing NVideo driver from AppImage (build server)

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.
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.
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).
