New Version 23.12: Fight the Good Fight

Dec 15, 2023.

Version 23.12.15 is now available for DOWNLOAD!

This is release is a small collection of fixes and upgrades.

  • Fixed crash on start on Wayland on Ubuntu 22.04 and 23.10 - may require installing qt6-wayland (broke in v23.11).
    This breaks support for Wayland on Ubuntu 23.04, which is a less important version than the other two. The combination of Wayland and Qt 6 seems impossible to handle universally in the portable/AppImage/Snap binary bundle. If installing a Qt 6 Wayland package does not work in your distro, some options are to login using an X session instead of Wayland or try the Flatpak.
  • Fixed numerous audio filters missing on macOS/Intel (broke in v23.11).
  • Fixed crash in No Sync video filter with new Ease Back and Ease Elastic keyframes.
  • Fixed Equalizer: Parametric > Preset not loading (broke in v23.09).
  • Fixed Slideshow Generator not padding videos on mismatching aspect ratio (broke in v23.09).
  • Fixed Timeline waveform is not updated when changing Properties > Audio > Track.
  • Fixed #filename# and #basename# keywords in Text: Simple video filter with non-ASCII filenames on Windows.
  • Fixed Properties > View Bitrate opens too big on high DPI screen.
  • Fixed Properties > View Bitrate > Save image is not anti-aliased.
  • Fixed Properties > Measure Video Quality accuracy when Color range is Full.
  • Fixed some minor memory leaks.
  • Changed all NVENC hardware encoders in Export to use CQ instead of constant QP for VBR rate control.
  • Ugraded FFmpeg to version 6.1
  • Upgraded AV1 decoder dav1d to version 1.3.0 and AV1 encoder libaom-av1 to version 3.8.0
  • Upgraded rubberband audio pitch library to version 3.3.0
