0.15 Release “Ich bin ein berliner”

The PiTiVi team is proud to announce the 0.15 release.

This will be the last release using the “traditional” core/engine of PiTiVi. The next releases will be based on GStreamer Editing Services (GES) and should thus depart significantly from this release in terms of performance, features and stability.

For the best user experience, the PiTiVi team strongly recommends that users have all the latest official GStreamer libraries and plugins installed.

Features of this release

  • A new transformation feature allows resizing, panning and cropping clips directly in the previewer
  • Automatic clip alignment by analyzing soundtracks to sync multicamera footage
  • Ability to have presets for rendering
  • Default set of project settings and rendering presets
  • Cleaner preferences dialog
  • Integrated offline user manual
  • Cleaner advanced codec settings dialog
  • Improved video thumbnailing performance
  • “Soft dependencies” manager to warn the user of features requiring additional packages
  • Port to gtkbuilder
  • Respect GNOME's button icons setting
  • Improved startup time
  • Code cleanups and remove dead code
  • Properly show property descriptions (blurbs) for advanced codec settings

  • gstreamer >= 0.10.28
  • gst-python >= 0.10.19
