OpenShot 2.5 Open-Source Video Editor Adds Hardware Acceleration

OpenShot 2.5 is here two and a half years after the OpenShot 2.4 release, and almost a year after the OpenShot 2.4.4 point release. It’s a major update that introduces experimental hardware acceleration (encoding and decoding) support, which should greatly improve the performance of the video editor. OpenShot 2.5 also adds improvements to the performance of the keyframe system when handling long vides or when editing multiple videos at the same time. The keyframe system now delivers real-time interpolated values and no longer caches the entire value set.
