Apr 30, 2019. | By: Dan Dennedy

Version 19.04 is now available for DOWNLOAD!

This version is the usual roundup of recent fixes and minor feature additions. The development team especially thanks forum members @Paul2, @sauron, and @DRM for their contributions to this release.

New Features

  • Added (creation) Date column to Playlist Details view.
  • Added Set File Date… to the Playlist menu and item context menu.
  • Added Sort By Name and Sort By Date to the Playlist menu.
    These are single-shot sorting commands. The playlist is still fixed-ordering. The new options do not automatically sort new playlist entries.
  • Added new video filters:
    • Grid
    • Audio Dance Visualization
    • Audio Light Visualization
    • RGB Shift
    • Glitch
    • Distort

     

  • Added Zoom 300%, 400%, 500%, 750%, and 1000% to the player’s zoom menu.
  • Added Settings > Drawing Method > Software (Mesa) on Windows.
    This is not good for performance, but it improves compatibility. Use only as a last resort.
  • Added Display Method > OpenGL or Software (Mesa) on Linux.
  • Added Norwegian Nynorsk translation.

Fixes

  • Fixed reading some AVCHD files after a camcorder splits.
  • Cosmetic fixes for timecode spinner and toolbar icons on high DPI systems.
  • Bundled libnsl for Linux to fix Fedora.
  • Fixed Video Waveform scope graticule not showing on non-dark theme.
  • Fixed incorrect compositing z-order after Insert Track.
  • Fixed cosmetic problem with main toolbar using System theme on macOS.
  • Fixed current track changes after inserting or overwriting a clip in Timeline.
  • Fixed absolute paths can be introduced on Windows when using a project folder.
  • Fixed sometimes showing forward slashes for file paths on Windows.
  • Fixed first clip does not start at beginning when drop to Timeline after File > New or File > Close.
  • Fixed Properties > Convert and Reverse on files with album art or embedded thumbnail.
  • Fixed a possible crash on File > New or File > Close.
  • Fixed filters on clips not extended into transition when adding a transition by trimming or resizing a transition.
  • Fixed Open Other > ALSA Audio on toolbar on Linux.
  • Fixed changing Properties > Speed or Color Range on a timeline clip may crash.
  • Fixed timeline correction when drag clip to another track and then back to original.
  • Fixed reloading the Mask: From File filter resets Threshold keyframes.
  • Fixed the Mask: Simple Shape filter does not work when Width or Height is 0%.

Changes and Improvements

  • Increased parameter ranges in the Rotate and Scale filter.
  • Added verification that saved MLT XML is well-formed XML before (over-)writing the target file.
  • Changed default Outline Thickness (3) and alpha of Text filter to match Open Other > Text and prevent a problem where the text outline is aliased when the clip is transparent.
  • Changed the version check to use HTTPS for increased privacy.
  • Added DLL redirection files for other .exe programs on Windows to prioritize Shotcut-provided DLLs over those in system or $path.
  • Removed the buggy Merge with next clip from Timeline clip context menu.
