    Using already 20.04 for some heavy task, I can't wait to upgrade to 20.08 ASAP.

      but Kdenlive has matured quite well in recent years.
      It still fails to compete against proprietary video editors.
      Yes, it has improved notably though.

      Seriously, when will we engage in the hardware rendering game? Only Olive has done it so far, but they got stuck in the rewrite spiral.

        Kdenlive comes as AppImage bundle in the download page. I am mentioning this because of a discussion I had in another topic. Simply download, make executable and double click. Enjoy!

          Interface looks like an improvement.

            I'm still waiting for some type of AI neural network upscaling. The windows people are having all the fun while we get left behind.

              Yes! This is great to evaluate Kdenlive w/o drawing all the KDE dependencies (on a Gnome desktop)

                How can you know which and how those software use hardware rendering?
                Not a troll question, I'm sincerely curious: are there comparisons on internet which demonstrate by metrics? Or do you just check release notes and features list? Because as far as directly checking code goes, on top of requiring solid knowledge, I don't see that happening for proprietary software.

                If there is some (reliable) comparison page somewhere that you know of it would be great it you could share it.

                  Assuming you don't mean in the UI, this has been possible since I've been using kdenlive (the last 3 years or so). It uses avformat, so just change `vcodec=libx264` to `vcodec=vaapi_264` or whichever codec you want to use in the rendering parameters.

                    I am using Kdenlive for quite some time to do all my video cutting.
                    It may be lacking compared to paid alternatives, but I don't know of any tool in the Windows space offering this feature set as an open source or otherwise free software.
