Change the VP9 WebM preset to use the Opus audio codec.
Add support for the #localtime# keyword to the Text filter (no
Restart instead of simply closing the app when changing the GPU or
Change the Redo keyboard shortcut to Ctrl+Y on Windows only.
Save file paths in MLT XML with relative names for assets in the
same folder or sub-folder. This makes it easier to use a relocatable
Add scale and offset parameters and a preset widget to the
Rotate filter. Usually after rotating a video, part of the image has
been clipped. These new parameters provide control for that clipping
processing including no clipping.
Add Italian translation.
Maintenance release to fix some bugs.
Added Polish translation.
Restored FFV1 encoding and preset.
Change Leap Motion control: close hand to pause, open hand
Added WMV and WMA encode presets.
Enabled the video player zoom and pan controls for OS X.
Added Size and Position video filter with a rectangle control that
overlays the video player.
Added a simple Text video filter also with rectangle
control overlay. This is a dynamic text filter supports pre-defined
variables: Timecode, Frame #, File date, File name.
Enabled parallel video processing for Encode File on systems with
more than 2 logical cores when not using GPU Processing. This
makes encoding faster when using filters, transitions,
Added an Opacity video filter.
Added an option on video fade filters: Adjust opacity instead of
fade with black.
Now you can add filters to an entire track by clicking the track
head and using the Filters panel.
New projects created with this version now load much more quickly.
Now the Stabilize video filter really does work on Windows.
Added a Gamma menu item to the Settings menu when in GPU mode, which
performs gamma correction. Previously, the display gamma was fixed
at sRGB, but now you can choose Rec. 709. Previously, when applying
a GPU filter, Shotcut would output sRGB gamma when encoding to a
Y’CbCr file, and that has been removed/fixed.
Transfer characteristic (gamma) metadata is now written to video
files that support it (e.g., H.264).
The filter UI layout now automatically adapts to a horizontal or
vertical layout to suit more workspace layouts.
Upgraded FFmpeg to version 2.3.
add “Remove Old Program Files” option to Windows installer
ask to exit if there are unfinished jobs
fix crash when loading invalid XML
fix frames repeating at end of some clips
fix Stabilize filter on Windows
add elegant combination slider and spinner control and revise all
filter UIs to use it

improve tooltips on timeline track headers
fix bug that gives you a MLT-XML GPU warning when the Balance or Pan
filters are in a project
Save to app config the folder path name of last saved project XML.
Then, use this path to default save dialogs such as next XML or
video stabilization data.
On OS X, when using System theme, stack the display volume and mute
toggles so these widgets do not appear so wide.
Workaround for the Stabilize filter’s analysis job crashing on
Windows. The analysis job still crashes at the end, but
the data is still created and usable. So, go ahead and try to use
the data regardless of the job’s failure.
Make adjusting image duration on timeline easier. Now,
the Duration field in Properties adjusts the out point, and the
actual duration is 10 minutes. This lets you add just a few seconds
to the Timeline by default but then stretch or shrink the image clip
on the timeline up to 10 minutes. If you need more than 10 minutes,
add the clip to the track again.
