Kdenlive is great. But I am feeling a bit like a granny driving a ferrari to church here, trying to edit some 1080 HD webcam footage for my website.
After Yellows excellent help I was able to get proxys going, but I have hit a new glitch that has me stumped. I have looked through the forums and the manual, but no luck.
I am using kdenlive from repositories on 12.04. My video clips are from an HD webcam (logitech) at 1600x896 .avi (I assume the webcam decided to use this format due to lower light?)
I have 3 clips (proxied) clip1, clip2, clip3.
I have edited 20 min of raw footage down to a mix of 2 min of cinematic brilliance (he says with toungue firmly planted in cheek).
The clips have segements edited out for placement into the timeline (lets say 30 sec of the middle of clip1 is on time line video 1)
When I go to render it into a webfriendly format 1280x720.mp4 I get problems.
When I "unproxy" the clips (either through manually unclicking inside main editing screen, or let render to it automatically), they will only play from the begining of the raw clip. IE In proxy I see that it is the middle 30sec I want, unproxied it just goes ahead and plays (in project monitor) or renders the first 30 sec of clip1. Same for other clips, it only plays the firsr x number of seconds, not the part I want.
Is this due to my nonstanderd format?
Any wisdom from the forum?
