Nov 25, 2020.

Version 20.11.28 is now available for DOWNLOAD!

The main purpose of the 20.11 release is to address problems as a result of the major changes to our main app library and build processes as mentioned in previous release.


  • Fixed running on macOS 11.0 Big Sur.
  • Fixed Properties > Reverse job always fails (broke in v20.10).
  • Fixed dropping multiple files to Timeline (broke in v20.10).
  • Fixed Timeline, Keyframes, and Text: Rich editor menus and drop-downs in all filters not showing on systems with multiple monitors (broke in v20.10).
  • Fixed drop-downs in all filters not showing the correct value when the filter is reselected (broke in v20.10).
  • Fixed appearance of Settings > Theme > System on Windows and macOS (broke in v20.10).
  • Fixed text looks too big in Windows with display scale 150% (regression in v20.10).
  • Fixed Size, Position & Rotate filter when a size value becomes 0, possibly while editing the field (broke in v20.10).
  • Fixed some library dependencies not bundled in Linux (broke in v20.10).
  • Fixed Size, Position & Rotate distorting the aspect ratio when image width or height > 16000 (broke in v20.10).
  • Fixed clicking Open in LUT filter on Linux Snap crashes (broke in v20.10).
  • Fixed bad performance regression and high memory usage when automatically scrolling timeline during playback (regression in v20.09).
  • Reduced memory usage on systems with more than 8 CPU threads.
  • Fixed high memory usage when increase Properties > Speed large amount with Pitch Compensation on.
  • Fixed showing the convert dialog twice when dropping files to Timeline.
  • Fixed Size, Position & Rotate filter behavior in generated slideshow.
  • Fixed hiding a filter’s VUI when the playhead is not over the filtered clip.
  • Fixed a possible crash when audio waveforms are updated in the background.
  • Fixed simple keyframes for Stretch X & Y parameters of Corner Pin video filter.
  • Fixed some of the undo buttons in the Corner Pin video filter.
  • Fixed jagged edges on text in the Text: Rich editor.
  • Fixed cursor disappears between some characters in the Text: Rich editor.
  • Fixed proxy generation when video includes cover art/thumbnail.
  • Fixed a possible crash when drag clip to empty timeline after closing a project with multiple tracks.


  • Improved behavior when press enter/return in the current position timecode field.
  • Made it is easier to choose opaque black in the color chooser dialogs.
  • Changed numeric fields in Size, Position & Rotate and Text: Rich to require Enter, Tab, or click outside (de-focus) to apply the change. This prevents the filter going to weird or undesired sizes or positions as you enter values.
  • Changed Text: Rich default size and postion to have a 10% margin inside the frame.


  • Added a warning dialog when the computer is getting low on available memory.
  • Added Properties > menu > Set Equirectangular….
  • Added a Start Offset time parameter and Apply transform option to the 360: Stabilize video filter.
  • Added a Show Grid option to the 360: Transform video filter as a visual aid.
  • Added a dialog to confirm trying to add or paste filters to Timeline > Output.
  • Added Move Up, Move Down, and Deselect buttons to Filters.
  • Added command line option --QT_SCALE_FACTOR_ROUNDING_POLICY that accepts values: Round, Ceil, Floor, RoundPreferFloor, PassThrough. The default is Round except on Windows where it is RoundPreferFloor, which makes it treat 150% like 100% to reduce the UI text size.
