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.

I hope you will get as much fun playing with it as I do.

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


Fixed misplaced macro panel on first use

Fixed auto macro assignment bug on new AuxFX slot creation

Can now dragdrop single plugin from current slot to another slot
Added QWERTZ keyboard option
Added totals to bank listing
Colour coded aux label in patches
Improved handling of some special chars in my SQLite wrapper
Fixed nasty bug in migrate plugin snapshots (this shouldn't have effected anyone until now as there was only 1 plugin update that used this process and it was a relatively new, however was discovered during testing a new plugin update)
Improved text handling in paragraph areas


Updated for Ubuntu 20.04


Changes to the video take structure has caused a lot of follow up problems,
- esp within patches, these may take some time for all to come to light,
- but here's some more fixes, you may need to revisit any patches and reassign the correct takes
Fixed quite a few things I'd broken on the video editor recently
- still a little underused so not heavily tested
Changed auto bailing out of rendering when 90% disk space, new threshold set to 2GB disk space
Fixed instant fade bug for manual controlled rendering
Minor graphic shadow fix on aux macro knobs


Fixed bug on 2nd new take creation would seg fault
Added popup 'quick load' buttons to patch thumbnails
Patches were failing to set to the correct takes
Patches now apply saved video speed
Fixed aux slot thumbnails getting lost during swapping and re-saving
... and as always some minor graphical improvements / tweaks
