New Release

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

Hi,

I’ve prepared a new release of the Open Movie Editor that adds some nice new features:

Additionally to the stretchable scrollbar, there are also zoom buttons for the timeline, because for new users it wasn’t immediately clear how the scrollbar worked.

Then there is the possibility to detach the preview window from the main window, which is useful, if you are working with a dual screen setup.

A new color grading tool was added, its called “Lift, Gamma, Gain” and it is a three-way color picker.

And there is also an improvement in the node editor, where you can add images by dragging them from a filemanager into the canvas, and you can also add preview nodes to examine intermediate steps in your composition.

Its available from the Open Movie Editor Download Page

Installing will be a little difficult, because it demands the most recent versions of libquicktime and gavl, but this is to encourage distribution packagers to update those dependencies, so if you have problems file a bug or complain to your distribution vendor. ;-)

btw. If you are a packager yourself, and you need help or hints to create the perfect OME package, be sure to subscribe to the Open Movie Editor Packagers Mailinglist.

Cheers,
and have fun
