Stats Update & New Ad Images

Posted by Jonathan Thomas (Creator)

We had another fantastic day, although a little slower than our first day.  We added 40 new backers and increased our pledges by more than $1,000, bringing our current total to $2,899.  The % of backers coming from Kickstarter has grown... slightly, from 24% to 27%.  I hope this means OpenShot is starting to make it's way into the "Popular" category on Kickstarter.

Timeline Improvements

I will be discussing this much more over the course of the project, but I just wanted to mention a few details about our timeline improvements. The timeline (for those who don't know), is the part of the interface where we move and position our video & audio clips.  I will be re-writing the timeline code from scratch, built with HTML5, JavaScript/JQuery, and CSS. I have already built a prototype, and it works incredibly well.  Dragging, snapping, trimming, multiple clip selection, constraints, etc...  I will share a video demo of the new timeline in the near future.  But seriously, it is really cool, and a huge step forward for OpenShot!


To help promote our project and continue bringing in new backers, I have created a few different advertisements / banner graphics.  If you happen to have a website, or know someone that does, it would be awesome if you could post one of these images, linking back to this campaign.

Thanks again for supporting OpenShot!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed we can continue to bring in new backers, and somehow reach our goal!  Talk to you soon!
