Audio Video Media Editing
DubEdit is born because I wanted to create music videos with very fine image editing to mach the music. I found no open source application able to help me do that easily. So I decided to create my own tool.
So with DubEdit you will be able to control video editing image by image if necessary. But you can also easily assemble with one mouse action a complete sequence. And if the sequence does not exactly match the expected duration another mouse action can extend it, shrink it or truncate it to the perfect duration.
Special effects can be realized by combining recursively source, filter and mixer layers. The sources provide images or sounds without the help of any other layer (e.g. a video media or a shape). A filter will need an input from one other layer to produce its own output. Some video filters may have a second special input: a mask. This mask will limit the application of the filter on the unmasked parts of the input image. And the mixers process several input layers to create their video or audio output.
I make a lot of mistakes and I like to try effects that have 90% chance to be crapy (just in case). So DubEdit offers you the ultimate Undo function. Every operation can be undone (except closing DubEdit or the edited project!).
The V0.5.0 is there. Check Download Page.
DubEdit is compatible with Windows 32 platforms. It has been tested under Windows XP and Windows 7.
It should work with Vista and Windows 8 though I cannot support bugs that would be specific to these platforms as I have no testing environment for that.
DubEdit is composed of 2 parts: the DubEdit Program and the DubEdit Libraries.
The DubEdit Libraries contain the layer implementations, the decoding of the input media and the encoding of the exported media. They are open source under GPL V3 license for the code and Creative Common Attribution for the icons and images.
The DubEdit program contains the editor itself. It also schedules the previewer, calling the DubEdit libraries to render the video or the audio. The DubEdit Program is NOT (yet?) open source. Though it is available for free (really free: there is no adware/spyware hidden in the program and it does not try to install a search tool bar).
Due to these different licenses, the DubEdit Program and the DubEdit Libraries are not distributed together. You have to download both separately or you can just download and install the DubEdit Program that will download and install the compatible DubEdit Libraries for you (recommended).
The following disclaimer applyies to DubEdit Program:
THE PROGRAM IS PROVIDED WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY.
AUTHORS AND DEVELOPPERS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES USING, OR NOT BEING ABLE TO USE, DUBEDIT PROGRAM. YOU MUST TAKE ANY NECESSARY PRECAUTION BEFORE USE.
DubEdit Program and Libraries are copyright 2007-2013 Philippe Chevrier
They make use of :
In addition DubEdit Libraries re-use some code from 2007's Avery Lee's VirtualDub with a lot of adaptations to fit the DubEdit needs and constraints.
And special thanks to Alyson Hannigan whose talent gave me the wish to create DubEdit.
