What’s new in version 3.1.1

Updated on May 08 2023

  • Fixes and Improvements to Tracker and Object Detection effects (fix property editing, prevent crashes, removed black background)
  • Fixes to Parent property (simplify context menus, a single None option, include thumbnail images)
  • Prevent freeze on launch (when OpenShot's sample rate does not match the default Windows sample rate)

  • Fix duplicate Profile name bug (causing an issue when exporting and re-opening a project with certain duplicate profile names)
  • Protect timeline (webview) from receiving lots of unneeded messages from libopenshot (prevents crash in certain cases)
  • Improved caching logic around Property Editor (better performance while adjusting clip properties)
  • Fix large memory leak in Clip::Close() method (not correctly clearing Clip cache)
  • Prevent crash on timeline::SetCache (adding thread lock)
  • Adding additional logging around audio device detection and initialization
  • Allow audio-only clips to be transparent (revealing the video/image of clips below them)
  • Multiple fixes for WebM decoding (preventing freezes and crashes)
  • Fix divide by zero error in AudioWaveformer (if no amplitude was found)
  • Fix GitHub actions to remove Ubuntu 18.04 builder and some additional tweaks to build scripts

I gave it a try but it freezes as much as it can... First if you don't allow connections! (Why would I need to connect anywhere for editing a video?) Then, once you've given up blocking connections, it freezes as soon as you try to move some segment. Too bad, it looked nice. Shotcut may not be the state of the art but at least it works.
