Check this option if the add-on won't activate

Some add-ons in Blender require the "auto run Python scripts" option to be on. If it's off you won't be able to activate Power Sequencer in the add-ons tab.

Big thanks to...

@doakey3 for all your work adding new features, making the add-on self-documenting, and your work on the VSE Transform Tools

@TheDuckCow, @davcri for respectively adding automated updates and written docs :)

Contributors welcome!

Thanks to Daniel, we split the add-on's code to make it as easy as possible to add or fix features.

If you want to improve your Python skills and make it even faster to edit with Blender, check the open issues and join the discussion!

You're welcome to suggest new features you'd like to work on. Just keep in mind we want to keep a Blender-like workflow so we're not looking to add features like bins, tracks, and metadata at the moment.

We also welcome feedback and people who'd like to create tutorials :)

See you in the next update!
Nathan

With a ton of work from @doakey3 to improve the UX, add new features, improve the code structure, add shortcuts automatically, generate beautiful documentation in the readme... Power Sequencer is ready for its 1.0 release!

This is the first Release Candidate (RC1). Please help us test it and report bugs you found here on GitHub. We'll do our best to fix them ASAP.

New features:

  1. Interactive tool to cut and trim strips with the mouse as fast as possible with visual feedback

image

  1. Rewritten automated import with framerate warnings
  2. Automatically added shortcuts
  3. Automatic updates thanks to @TheDuckCow and his Blender addon updater

And more! We worked on a multi-part video tutorial with @doakey3 to help you get started with video editing in Blender. It'll come out with Power Sequencer 1.0 :)

There's already more features and improvements waiting in the dev branch for version 1.1, so even more to come!

All features are in for version 1.0! It's now time to track down bugs, and prepare the docs and videos for the release.

New features

  1. Import rewrite. More reliable, gives framerate related warning, and should now be cross-platform
  2. Mouse cut tools rewrite. Supports click and drag to trim a precise frame range on top of existing functionality

Improvements and bug fixes

Improvements:

  • Render for the web: display a message after changing the render settings
  • Snap selection to cursor better preserves the strips' channels if moving forward in time
  • Trim to surrounding cuts now snaps the time cursor to the cut
  • Export can use the scene's name
  • Store imported files as relative paths, so you can port the project to a different computer
  • Add pen tablet support for mouse cut and trim

Bugs:

  • Fix Blender's 1 frame offset on some imported strips with both audio and video channels when using the add-on's import
  • Fix list index error on mouse_trim

Add-on installation guide

  1. Download the zip file below
  2. Open Blender
  3. Press CTRL+ALT+U to open your User Preferences
  4. Click on the Add-ons tab
  5. Click the Install Add-on from File... button
  6. Select the zip file downloaded in step 1
  7. Click the checkbox next to VSE: Power Sequencer to activate it

Install the keymaps

  1. Download the power-vse-shortcuts.py file below
  2. In the User Preferences window, navigate to the Input tab
  3. At the bottom, click the Import Key Configuration... button
  4. In the file browser, navigate to the power-vse-shortcuts.py file and open it
  5. Make sure that the Power Sequencer input map is active at the top

The keymap replaces yours, so you may want to use a separate blender installation to work on videos. We're looking for a smart way to let you use the add-on's keymaps along with your own. If you've got experience with Python and/or UX design, please help us find a better solution :)

Don't forget to click Save User Settings at the bottom of the window to save your changes!
