Requires Ubuntu 20.04.

Minimum Requirements: resolution of 1920x1080 for your primary screen, and graphics card with drivers able to run version 4 of OpenGL shaders and at least 4GB video ram. Suggest installing the latest graphic drivers and recommend the system uses an SSD Drive.

You will need FFmpeg installed. sudo apt update;  sudo apt-get install ffmpeg;

If you have trouble importing a file (e.g. mp4), you could review:
which amounts to trying this: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras


If you wish to report an issue or ask a question, please use the support forums here or email contact@vidifold.

VIDIFOLD Revision Notes

A list of all the notes from all versions is provided below.


Swapping slots, improved and made more robust
Swapped slot input preview click & locate functions
Added alternative mode to live clip range behaviour


Fixed introduced bug on bank selection in ItemDialog


Quick fix for Georg, in simple mix mode make sure to clean bus output after last stopped clip


Can now handle 3 channel PNG
- updated/migrated DB records to support this
- migrates previous PNGSequences to new format (didn't plan for this, but required)
The bank record structure was out of date, quite a lot of code needed refactoring/updating
- in the past you may have seen repeated bank names


RMB on fx param set to default value
Can now switch Bus mix mode without all clips stopping
Slots based on source plugins now saved in patches
Removed pointless plugin filter (will replace later with something more useful)
