How to Install Kdenlive 15.12.3 Video Editor on Ubuntu 16.04

    Kdenlive is an acronym for KDE Non-Linear Video Editor. It is primarily aimed at the GNU/Linux platform but also works on BSD and MacOS.
   Non-linear video editing is much more powerful than beginners’ (linear) editors, hence it requires a bit more organization before starting.

Kdenlive 15.12.3 Features :
  • Multi-track video editing : Kdenlive allows you to use and arrange several audio and video tracks, each one can be locked or muted to your convenience.
  • Use any audio / video format : Being based on the powerful FFmpeg libraries, Kdenlive can use almost any audio and video formats directly without the need to convert or re-encode your clips.
  • Configurable interface and shortcuts : You can arrange and save your custom interface layouts to fit your workflow. Keyboard shortcuts can also be configured to match your preferences.
  • Basic titler : Create simple titles for your projects, including shadows and gradients
  • Many effects and transitions : Dozens of effects are available, ranging from color correction to audio adjustments, as well as all the standard transform options.
  • Audio and video scopes : Monitor your audio level or check the color scopes to make sure your footage is correctly balanced.
         -  Audio Meter
         -  Histogram
         -  Waveform
         -  Vectorscope
         -  RGB Parade

  • Proxy editing : Kdenlive can automatically create low resolution copies of your source clips to allow you doing the editing on any computer, and then render using full resolution.

  • Automatic backup : Your project file is automatically backed up every few minutes, and older versions of the project file are also kept in case you need to roll back to a previous version.

  • Hardware Support :
         -  Blackmagic Design SDI and HDMI for input and preview monitoring
         -  Leap Motion for jog/shuttle control
         -  Webcam capture
  • Timeline preview : Sometimes when using hi-res footage or complex effects, real-time playback is not possible. Timeline preview allows you to pre-render parts of your timeline to get a perfectly smooth playback.

  • Keyframeable effects : Most effects can be keyframed, allowing you to change the parameters over time, using linear or smooth curves to achieve the result you want.

  • Themable interface : Flexible theming engine capable of a variety of light and dark themes.
