The PiTiVi team today announced the release of the latest version of their impressive video editor – the first in the unstable 0.13 PiTiVi series.
This release sees a number of improvements made, most notably: -
- core rewrite
- multi-layered timeline
- trimming features
- audio waveforms and video thumbnails in timeline
- picture support
- New project file format support
The PiTiVi team strongly recommend that users have all the latest gstreamer libraries and plugins installed for the best user experience possible, and whilst i would not recommend novice Ubuntu user try out this version yet (wait for a .deb!), you can find all source and packages via the official PiTiVi site @ http://www.pitivi.org/wiki/Downloads
The team have released this version in memory of those who lost their lives, friends, houses in the April 6th 2009 earthquake in l’Aquila, Italy.
Eward Hervey, PiTiVi developer, also relayed some awesome news via his blog: That the next release of PiTiVi (due in July!) will bring with it the much desired transitions, mixing, effects, etc! Fantastic work guys!
