New Version 24.01: Round and Round

Jan 28, 2024.

Version 24.01.28 is now available for DOWNLOAD!

New Stuff

  • Added Player > Loop (\) and Player > Set Loop Range to the menu and player controls.
  • Added Timeline > Selection > Group/Ungroup (Ctrl+G, command+G on macOS). This is basically a saved multi-selection system. So, the operations it supports are all those available for multiple selection. That does not include trim, Filters, or Properties at this time. Hold Alt (option on macOS) to select an individual member of a group. Hold Alt+Ctrl (option+command on macOS) to multi-select only certain members of a group.
  • Added support for multiple selection to Split At Playhead.
  • Added Timeline > Edit > Split All Tracks At Playhead (Shift+S).
  • Added Edit > Undo and Redo support for adding, removing, changing, and disabling Filters.
  • Added Timeline > Edit > Nudge Forward (.) and Nudge Backward (,).
  • Added Pause and Resume to the context menu in Jobs.
  • Added Settings > Backup with options for:
    • Manually
    • Hourly
    • Daily (default)
    • Weekly This creates a backup of the current project file in a manner similar to File > Backup and Save except it is automatic now unless Manually is chosen.
  • Added File > Other Versions submenu that tries to find similarly-named project files in the same folder create by Shotcut backup or recovery mechanisms.
  • Added Settings > Player > Audio API on Linux and Windows. Basically, this makes the --SDL_AUDIODRIVER command line option available in the Settings menu.
  • Added a Previous button to View > Application Log dialog that goes to the log file created by the previous app session. Now, on startup, Shotcut makes a backup of shotcut-log.txt to shotcut-log.bak.
  • Added a Copy button to all text viewer dialogs that does the same thing that the non-obvious Select All and Copy actions in the context menu.
