#1
[Image: Wipe-left-to-right.png]

OpenShot the Linux only video editing system is now coming to Windows and Mac with a shitload of new features and tools.

Have a gander at the Kickstarter here

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/4211...inux/posts

Only $25 for the software which is even cheaper than Womble and a lot more powerful.

I have pledged.


Feature list

OpenShot's Features * Support for many video, audio, and image formats (based on FFmpeg)
* Gnome integration (drag and drop support)
* Multiple tracks
* Clip resizing, trimming, snapping, and cutting
* Video transitions with real-time previews
* Compositing, image overlays, watermarks
* Title templates, title creation
* SVG friendly, to create and include titles and credits
* Scrolling motion picture credits
* Solid color clips (including alpha compositing)
* Support for Rotoscoping / Image sequences
* Drag and drop timeline
* Frame stepping, key-mappings: J,K, and L keys
* Video encoding (based on FFmpeg)
* Key Frame animation
* Digital zooming of video clips
* Speed changes on clips (slow motion etc)
* Custom transition lumas and masks
* Re-sizing of clips (frame size)
* Audio mixing and editing
* Presets for key frame animations and layout
* Ken Burns effect (making video by panning over an image)
* Digital video effects, including brightness, gamma, hue, greyscale, chroma key (bluescreen / greenscreen), and over 20 other video effects

If it isn't as good as Vegas, I'd rather pay the extra $35.

wonder if this re-encodes everything or if it will do what womble does with directstream cutting/editing when possible
STILL AVAILABLE- only 2 left Fanedit.org skateboards
for skating or decoratvie purposes- shoot me a PM
probably never coming soon:

yes it is. However this program seems interesting. If it works with mpeg2 format well (since vegas is always hit or miss with it), I might find it worth really looking into

It will probably reencode as it uses FFMPEG. Don't we have any linux users on the board that can give an idea what the software is like at the moment?

/quick google

Apparently it's very good.

From todays update

Quote:I am also experimenting with buffering the video preview to disk, and if nothing changes on that section of your video timeline, it will load the cached version, quickly buffer it, and begin playback. This is called smart rendering in some editors (or a very similar system of caching playback).

Looks quite promising, although at this point it's only for video playback, if they can make it work I'm sure they'll implement it for final encoding.

Quote:API + Python = Awesome (for programmers)

If you are not a programmer, this section might not make much sense... so sorry about that in advance. Although I mentioned this in the Kickstarter description, I wanted to make sure everyone understands how cool this feature is. If you ever create scripts / hack / program, and wanted to work with video files in some automated way, our new Python API makes this extremely simple. In fact, its so simple that with a few dozen lines of code, you could build your own, simple video editor. Or perhaps you want to add some video editing features to your website... no problem, just write a quick Python script with our API, and invoke it from your website. Already use a Python web framework (such as Django), just include the video editing code right into your website code! Or perhaps you have hundreds (or thousands) of videos lying around, and need to add sub-titles to each one, resize them, transcode them in a different codec, etc... These are the kinds of tasks that our new API will allow you to accomplish! Assuming of course, that you can program a little bit. =)

e2a:

Just spotted a reply to my question about having smart rendering as an option for encoding.

Quote:Hi nOmArch,
The basic idea of caching to disk after the image and audio processing is completed for a frame, makes perfect sense to me. However, it not only speeds up previews & playback on your timeline, but it would also speed up the encoding process. I know that some codecs, like MPEG2 might make sense for Smart Encoding... but some would not be possible (at least I can't sort that out in my brain). =) But, the bottom line, there will be lots of caching in the new OpenShot engine, and it will speed up both previews and encoding. I hope that all makes sense. Thanks again for your support!

Quote:[h=1]Feature Spotlight: Frame Accuracy[/h]One feature that is critical to a video editor is being able to accurately locate a specific frame of video. Although this seems like common sense, it's actually quite difficult due to modern codecs and encoding. For example, when seeking a video file, the codec will often estimate where in the file to start reading from. This might be a little before the requested frame, or a little after. However, in the new OpenShot engine, we have designed our seek engine to always find the correct frame, and never trust the location after seeking. This is especially critical when you attempt to reverse video, which requires seeking and caching, more seeking and caching, and so on. One wrong frame, and the audio will pop, the video will glitch, and it's very obvious something went wrong. In summary, we find the frames you are looking for!
