KDE’s Kdenlive video editor released version 22.12 this Monday! See what’s new and how to install guide for Ubuntu 22.04 and Ubuntu 22.10.
The new release of the video editor overhauled the whole guide/marker system. The new ‘Guides’ dock is available to seek, search, sort and filter all marker and guide.
Kdenlive 22.12 also improved support for Glaxnimate integration. It now sends the content of the timeline to Glaxnimate (need version >= 0.5.1) which then shows it as background, which makes it much easier to create animations that play together with your videos.
Other changes in Kdenlive 22.12 include:
- New ‘Remove All Spaces After Cursor‘ and ‘Remove All Clips After Cursor‘ options.
- Hamburger menu (‘≡’ icon) in tool-bar when menu bar hidden.
- More explanation text in tool-tip when pressing Shift.
- Custom cache size limit.
- Cleanup the software configuration page.
- Initial Qt6 and KDE Frameworks 6 support.
- New Pixabay Video provider
- Add option to disable countdown on audio capturing.
- Add Pipewire as SDL output
- audio level visualization filter, audio spectrum filter, audio wave form filter
