I created a project and when I try to render it I get an empty file. I have tried rendering to different formats, tried selective rendering, I am not sure what I am doing wrong. This is my first attempt at creating a video with this program, any advise would be helpful, Thanks.
Hi, what version of kdenlive, linux distro version or mac? Source video file code?
Did you place clips in the timeline?
Have you got ffmpeg from Ubuntu 12.10 repository or from somewhere else?
What codec & container are your source video files?
could this be the old "rendering stops at the first title" problem? http://www.kdenlive.org/forum/rendering-suddenly-goes-100-after-first-ti...
In a copy of your project can you try deleting any titles you have and try rendering.
If that works then you should maybe try installing the 0.9.3 beta version that is around
For Ubuntu you could use sunabs 'stable' PPA probably more upto date than Ubuntu's repo, otherwise the 'unstable' PPA near latest git
Hopefully there's a bug report for this then, because running kdenlive as superuser is no solution. Its a work around to a bug that needs fixing and running as su should not be recommended.
And as a sunab PPA user on Ubuntu 12.10 and any others doing the same not have the same problem?
Could this be more to do with the access to hardware rights that can be set in the individual user setup at OS level causing problems with some effects plugin? Where as su or root would have access to all hardware.
If you go into user settings in Gnome for example and tick all the boxes for levels of access to sound, modems etc etc, I know I have them all ticked and then run kdenlive as normal does it render?
I'm not at my machine to test this theory though. :-)
that thread is old and suggests it is a mlt bug. and thus it might be fixed in more recent mlt builds
