New Release 17.08

Aug 1, 2017

Version 17.08 is now available for DOWNLOAD!

This version fixes some bugs and tweaks a few things as well:

  • Increased maximum Timeline zoom level.
  • Increased Speed field precision to 3 decimal places.

New Release 17.06 with Linux SDK

Jun 1, 2017

Version 17.06 is now available for DOWNLOAD.

This version changes the maximum duration for a still image from 10 minutes to four hours. As with previous versions, if you need an image to appear longer, you can add the image more than once. In addition to some other bug fixes, this version fixes a broken Chinese translation and adds a Hungarian translation.

For a while now, we have provided information about how to setup a development environment on Windows to hack Shotcut. As part of that, we created a Windows SDK that bundles together most of Shotcut’s dependencies as well as special build of Qt 5 that still includes QtWebKit. These requirements still make development on Linux troublesome for new or casual contributors. So, we have added a Linux SDK as well with setup instructions for Qt Creator.

Lastly, I want to remind readers of the video instruction course by James Woo . Yeah, there are quite a few YouTube videos now including our own, but they are so-so. James’ series is clear, concise, comprehensive, and a good value. There are now over 40 tutorials for only $29!
