Is KDEnlive currently not capable of applying FX to proxy clips?
I'm running a recent svn build (GMaq's latest svn package under his AV Linux 6) on my now quite old laptop, a 2Ghz core 2 duo w/ 4GB RAM. Despite its less than impressive CPU, I was still hoping I may get away with editing some 1080 mp4 footage and applying some VFX with KDEnlive thanks to its support for proxies although after having tried it I get the impression proxies don't work with effects yet?
It would seem effects can only be applied to the original clips because although proxy clips play fine once rendered, project playback slows to 0.5 fps or so as soon as I apply any effect. I would've expected a machine like mine would struggle applying VFX to 1080 res clips in realtime but I also expect it'd have no probs applying most of the KDEnlives VFX in RT to the 480x270 res MPEG proxy files and hence give a decent project preview framerate.
Also, I seem to be having probs removing VFX from clips. I can remove it in the clip effects list ok but it stays visible on the clip in the timeline and in the project preview. Known bug?
