I've just spent an couple of hours playing with version 1.0. I'm really impressed, and keen to add in my views/help... but they are added purely in the spirit of GNU & FSM so...
(a) they are my views and wishlist only …
(b) not intended as criticism, I fully appreciate that this project is done in peoples spare time.
So here is a slam down of my views...
-1- when I move a clip around on the time line I would like to move it's transitions and effects with it.
-2- Edit / undo : not in V1.0 what were you thinking
-3- I crashed it – no I really did...(screen just disappeared): I was adding a bunch of effects on to some jpg I had on my time line. I had old film, then added rotate, then took rotate off, added a couple more (I can remember which) but I was adding them and removing then from the properties window (not by dragging them onto the time line) I added Echo and BANG! -
My request: where is the log stored that I can send you guys – at the very least a trace of the commands entered – this could be combined with my request for a Edit and undo above!
-4- Adding 2 effects on top of each other . Doesn't really work, Ie I want to dissolve into to a jpg, but at the same time I'd like to add the mountains effect (over a slight longer period so that some parts of the jpg come into view a little later (apologies if this is a RTFM)
-5- the delete, home, end keys work don't not work (i.e. if I click on any object on my time line and press delete it would seem intuitive (to me at least) if the the object as removed form the time line.
-6- I have noticed that the save icon gets great out (and remains so) despite me making changes to the project. File / save still works ( I checked)
-7- I noticed that adding markers introduces are a really nasty “ccrsstzz” sound when you play the time line across them ? I removed them added some more and it didn';t happen again.
-8- I'm finding it quite hard to make my different tracks line up (in terms of start and end times). Id really like to be able to select a clip, go to properties, and under general be able to manually type into a text box the clip start point. I then need another text box for the end point. A further check box will enable box text boxes, and by entering values in both you will effectively re-size the clip. This level of accuracy for the start point becomes important (to me) when using a waveform visualiser (as per my first requests on different post) because I need action in my video to occur on the beat of the sound track.
-9- I can also crash it by selecting export … Youtube HD, then export. Interestingly the advanced options work fine for me
-10- This is not a bug but a feature request: I would like to be able to 'undock' the the main areas of the main window. What I mean is that I'd like to be able to position and resize the 3 areas (preview, time line and 'Assets (project files etc) independently on my desktop. Primary I like my preview window to be full screen and my other 2 windows to be on a separate monitor
