## How to contribute to OpenShot Video Editor

#### **Did you find a bug?**

* **Please check if this bug was already reported** by searching on GitHub under [Issues](https://github.com/OpenShot/openshot-qt/issues).

* If you're unable to find an open issue addressing the problem, [open a new one](https://github.com/OpenShot/openshot-qt/issues/new). Be sure to include a **title and clear description**, as much relevant information as possible, and the steps to reproduce the crash or issue.

* Please **attach log files** if you are reporting a crash. Otherwise, we will not be able to determine the cause of the crash.

  _Please download our latest daily installer:_

  1. www.openshot.org/download - click the '**Daily Builds**' button, then grab the latest build from the list.
     (Use the buttons below to download installers for a different Operating System.)
  2. Then enable 'Debug Mode (Verbose)' in the Preferences
  3. Quit OpenShot and delete both log files:
      * **Windows**: OpenShot stores its logs in your user profile directory (`%USERPROFILE%`, e.g. `C:\Users\username\`)
        * **`%USERPROFILE%/.openshot_qt/openshot_qt.log`**
        * **`%USERPROFILE%/.openshot_qt/libopenshot.log`**
      * **Linux/MacOS**: OpenShot stores its logs in your home directory (`$HOME`, e.g. `/home/username/`)
        * **`$HOME/.openshot_qt/openshot_qt.log`**
        * **`$HOME/.openshot_qt/libopenshot.log`**
  4. Re-launch OpenShot and trigger the crash as quickly as possible (to keep the log files small)
  5. Attach **both** log files

#### **Did you write a patch that fixes a bug?**

* Open a new GitHub pull request with the patch.

* Ensure the PR description clearly describes the problem and solution. Include the relevant issue number if applicable.

* Before submitting, please ensure your PR passes all build / compilation / and unit tests.

OpenShot Video Editor is a volunteer effort, and a labor of love. Please be patient with any issues you find, and feel free to get involved and help us fix them! 


Thanks!
