Melt doesn't seem to like spaces in path names. I have a Western Digital Hard drive which is quite unfortunately called "WD HDD", and Kdenlive is unable to render either from the GUI or from the command line script it produces.
Which Kdenlive /MLT version are you using? It works correctly for me with current git versions and should also work with Kdenlive 0.8.x
Ok, thanks for your feedback. I now fixed the problem in git.
I just wanted to say I have the same issue.
ver 0.8.2.1 | Mint 13
I noticed the shell script didn't protect the $SOURCE and $TARGET variables, so I put quotes around them but same result; it still splits on the space.
//STARTING RENDERING: false , false , "/usr/bin/melt" , "atsc_1080p_25" , "avformat" , "-" , "/mnt/bravo/TV/Ross" , "Kemp/scripts/Ep01-1080p.sh.mlt"
I tried putting in an HTML space character for the space like the script has in the target
There is no error now and the output looks right, but the render finishes straight away and the output file is 0 bytes.
Which ver is the fix for this in?
Try for the most recent version 0.9.6 or the one before 0.9.4
I note that mint is based on ubuntu so you probably can just use Sunab's alternative repository as described here http://kdenlive.org/download-ubuntu
Thanks for that. I will take that for a spin.
