Really like the look of Blender's welcome dialog, but also appreciate Krita's 'Hide after startup' checkbox. For users who like to launch the editor and start dragging their files in right away it's super helpful being able to easily disable it.

Cool! I really like how much colour this would add to the timeline, having the track labels coloured like that is a much quicker way of seeing the pairs of tracks that will often have linked audio/video.
How did you envision the colours on the track label cycling through though as you add more tracks?

The colors in the example are to mark if a track is locked or muted, this already happens in the small circle light of the current timeline. But I have been thinking of a system of using (colored) tags for tracks making it easier to visually organize the timeline. Where you can group various tracks an tag them for example, you can have various audio fx tracks and group them and tag them with "afx", then have a couple of music tracks and group them and tag them with a "music". That way you can move those groups up or down the timeline for facilitating fine adjustments, etc...

By the way cool example.

Obviously some further-down-the-line stuff, but here's a mockup of the timeline including:

  • Scrolling on the timeline (With a persistent file label until the clip is out of view.)
  • Locked tracks
  • Track renaming
  • Track repositioning (Mentioned in afarid's first comment)

Just an initial thought on a possible redesign of the timeline interface.

I don't mind the dropdown menu for editing modes, and I can easily switch by using the mousewheel too. Having said that, I rarely change modes while I'm editing, so perhaps I'm not the best use case. In Premiere, 'overwrite' mode is the default and you can switch to 'insert' mode by holding down the ctrl key as you're dragging a clip onto the timeline.

Apologies for updating the diff so soon after the last.

Fixed my silly reverse diff issue.

Thanks for your contribution, it seems fine to me now, except that your patch seems to be in the reverse direction (from your version to git master instead of from git master to your version). Once this is fixed we can commit. Do you have a git write access?

Ditched uneccessary code and made a few changes to make the code more robust.
Previously, MLT files couldn't be located and placeholders (in the event of missing project footage) would display a 'Locate Clip' context item, but wouldn't actually tell the user if the footage couldn't be located.

They're not wrong there, my WordPress sites are always under brute force attacks. Have to keep an eye on everything to ensure no new plugin vulnerabilities have come out.

benjaminnelan added a comment to T1959: More sequences in the project.

I use sequences all the time in editing, this feature in Kdenlive would be a game changer. Being able to import mlt and Kdenlive files as a virtual clip is essentially what sequences is, except you have to open their project to edit their contents.

Properly updated the diff. Removed all diff info that isn't related to the feature also.

benjaminnelan updated the diff for D1558: Locate Clip context menu item.

Hopefully this adds this diff onto the previous diff...
Thanks for the tip with QUrl::RemoveFilename - I should have read the docs more carefully!

Apologies for creating this again. Shortly after publishing the diff before, I realised that my code didn't account for files that weren't imported into Kdenlive, and therefore didn't have a location to open.
