Regressions, We've Had a Few

Feb 1, 2017. | By: Dan Dennedy

Lately, we have been focused primarily on bug fixes, and sometimes a bug fix introduces a new, often times worse bug, which is called a regression. Due to major regressions in v17.01 all users are strongly encouraged to

  • Fixed drag-n-drop from other than C: drive on Windows.
  • Fixed ‘/’ getting added to front of file paths on Windows.
  • Fixed the MLT XML repair tool not correctly handling decimal point in some configurations.
  • Fixed opening a network stream.
  • Improved support for image sequences.
  • Improved device capture.
  • Added Slovenian translation.

All device capture now occurs in the background. This makes it possible to record voice overs while playing the project. I plan to make a video to show how to do this soon.
