About Kdenlive

Kdenlive is a Free and Open Source video editing application, based on MLT Framework and KDE Frameworks 5. It is distributed under the GNU General Public License Version 3 or any later version that is accepted by the KDE project.

Building from source

Instructions to build Kdenlive are available in the dev-docs folder.

Testing Kdenlive via Nightly Builds

  • AppImage (Linux):
  • Flatpak (Linux):
    • Add the kde flatpak repository (if not already done) by typing flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists kdeapps --from on a command line. (This step may be optional in your version of Flatpak.)
    • Install kdenlive nightly with flatpak install kdeapps org.kde.kdenlive.
    • Use flatpak update to update if the nightly is already installed.
    • Attention! If you use the stable kdenlive flatpak already, the *.desktop file (e.g. responsible for start menu entry) is maybe replaced by the nightly (and vice versa). You can still run the stable version with flatpak run org.kde.kdenlive/x86_64/stable and the nightly with flatpak run org.kde.kdenlive/x86_64/master (replace x86_64 by aarch64 or arm depending on your system)
  • Windows:
  • macOS:

Note * - nightly/daily builds are not meant to be used in production.
