KDE are raising funds for the Kdenlive video editor

By - | Views: 21,214

Kdenlive, a powerful free and open source video editor from the KDE team is now having a dedicated fundraising campaign to support the team working on it.

Probably one of my favourite pieces of software. I often have a love / hate relationship with it due to some historic instability issues, although it has genuinely gotten a lot better there. It could be improved as with anything and these funds will help towards that.

For the KDE team, this seems to be the first time they've done a dedicated fundraiser with previous campaigns being for KDE as a whole. The goal isn't even what I would call ambitious, at only €15,000 that's a tiny price to pay for such an important piece of free software.

It's what I use for editing nearly all the videos on our YouTube channel, so it's quite important to me personally too because I just don't get on with any other editor.

See the fundraiser here.

Oh good! You used to not be able to donate directly to Kenlive, at best you could donate to KDE in the past.

I noticed some projects like Krita limit donations to 100€ which I think needs to be updated. I hope their Kdenlive is not capped so short.

I really hope they can supercharge their development.

This isn't the first time, Krita did a dedicated fundraiser as well.

This is an official KDE-level fundraiser, Krita do their own thing.
Nice, I'll have to donate. When I got into video editing back in 2017 Kdenlive was the only editor I could find with the right level of features, and I've used it quite a bit since.

I currently use Davinci Resolve, but I'd love if KdenLive could get even better so I donated. I wish them the best of luck.

Tehchnically this is a really good editor with a decent toolset and fairly stable - I'd dare claim the overall best on Linux. There's just one massive issue with the render from it - it's not well synced audio/video. It starts out synced but then slowly gets desynced with time. It's really weird, such a basic thing as this.
But that's ruined many a video clip for me.

Maybe it's a bug in the FFMpeg version you have? In some condition that Kdenlive triggers. That could be the reason it's not hugely widepread issue. Though I recall having some issues like that many years ago.
