I have noticed that whenever I an editing any videos using the "Filters" option, I go to preview the end result, and when I close the "Preview" window, that closes the "Filters" window as well so that I have to reopen the "Filters" window to make any changes. But the strange thing is that when I close the the "Crop" filter preview, the "Filters" window does not close. Is there any way to resolve that situation (it didn't happen in Windows)?

The version is 2.5.6, but I don't know for sure what the "flavor" is.

Colors could be different: depends on your desktop settings.

@Jan Is the GTK version is deprecated?  Somewhere I thought I read the Qt4 gui was preferred.
@fleabag I can't replicate this with the Qt4 gui filtering an avi+xvid+mp3.  I think Jan meant:

Code: [Select]
avidemux2_qt4

Did read the same thing, QT preferred. GTK version is deprecated? Not that I'm aware of. Believe GTK is in transition GTK+ 3.4.0 <> GTK+ 2.24.9. I'm not a heavy filter user yet, but did not notice this behavior in QT.
