Hey everyone. I would like to start off by saying that I love kdenlive and I use it more then daily. I really appreciate all the work you guys have put into this software and it has allowed me to do more with video then I thought I could.
I have used H.264 as my primary format for around a year now, but it has been acting strange lately, though I don't think I had this problem off the bat with Ubuntu 10.10. I got kdenlive off the repository provided at the download section of this site.
I did a few test renders that I think will show the problem. They are each of the same 1 minute clip at 200k with no customization:
XVid4 renders in 0:51 and the file was 3.8MB
MPEG-4 renders in 0:52 and the file was 3.7MB
H.264 renders in 3:59 and the file was 46.0MB
I don't know if the size, render time and the echo are related problems, but they all came about at the same time. I should also point out that the H.264 file looks a lot better. It may be that it just isn't rendering at the desired rate. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
