I love the OpenSource Power. The community, the creativity, the output, the input. I´ve made several Movies, ShortClips, one Interview and much more with Kdenlive. I do like it, because it has a clean GUI, is simple to use and there is nearly any basic Feature and a bunch of useful Tools.
What I do hate (and it is hard for me to avoid using *beep-words*):
First: Codecs and Converting.
I have spend so much time in convert and compression, it should be written on my tombstone. Man I hate it.
Second: Codecs and Incompatibility
Do I have to say anything about this? I know a lot of Codecs, Container and Formatting, but do I like to know it? Is it really necessary to know why or when or what ? If the audience look at my movies, should they give applause to the codec or what?
Third: Codecs and Automatic Recognition
I did recorded a clip with 50fps interlaced, Windows says 50fps, my Linux tells me about 25fps, Kdenlive says it is 50fps, another Windows Tool guesses something about 50full frames and my Wife call me an Idiot spending so much time ...
Fourth: Codecs and Licences
I bought a Camera, it has costs round about 1200€ (that is about 1400$ I guess). After I bought it, I looked into the description and started reading. Some hours later I realised, I have no rights. In the Licence Agreement is written, that any commercial use of Material is prohibited because I don't bought a commercial Licence of .h264. That is tough. Wasn't the claim in a commercial, I could be the next Steven Spielberg with this Brand New Toy? I guess they meant someone else, who has coincidentally the same name.
And now I ask you, what is your similar "most hated" thing in your mind?
