New Release 18.08.14

Aug 14, 2018.

Version 18.08.14 is now available for DOWNLOAD!

Unfortunately, the previous release 18.08.11 introduced a major regression that can corrupt project files if your project has clips where you had changed Speed in Properties. If you have a project file that no longer loads, you can fix it in a simple text editor:

  1. Open the .mlt file in a text editor (notepad.exe not recommended)
  2. Locate every line with <property name="shotcut:comment">.
  3. If the text that follows it on the same line before </property> is incorrect or has strange characters, remove the text between the property tags. The line should now look like
    <property name="shotcut:comment"></property>.
  4. Save the file with a new name that ends with .mlt
  5. Try to load the repaired XML file.
