I have edited some videos from concert. I have several clips, but I needed to cut off something in the middle of that clip and make dissolve. For example I have seven m2t clips. When I make dissolve between clip1 and clip2, evertything is OK. But when I cut off something within clip1 and try to make dissolve between these two parts of clip1, dissolve doesn't work. And other transitions work badly too. For ex. slide transition makes slide from destination clip to destination clip. It is quite weird bug. Any ideas, what does it make?
ffmpeg support for HDV mpeg2 is pretty bad, certainly I have bad performance seeking with m2ts, so you may want to transcoding a clip and testing it with the cut and transition to see if things improve.
I guess you should cut your clip in two, and put the two parts on separate tracks, then do dissolves etc between the two tracks?
The bug is still here on kdenlive 0.9.2.
I also have thiss issue with different codecs and file types.
Arch Linux x86_64
I made workaround script, that fix project xml structure.
More info on comments in bug tracker: http://www.kdenlive.org/mantis/view.php?id=2668
for a simple code-free work arround you can use identical video files/clips with diffrent names.
So, go to your video file (the actual file outisde of kdenlive) then duplicate and rename the copy. Eg, take your video.ogg and make video.ogg AND video_2.ogg.
Then import that new clip into kdenlive too and just make sure you are always alternating between them in the above situtaion, rather than tranitioning within one clip.
This seems to work fine for me, though its uneccesary fiddely and the bug still needs fixing! : )

I'm having the exact same bug, and I know it's marked "solved" in the tracker - but how do I fix this without getting the latest git and compiling everything from source?
Edit: As usual, "solution" right after posting. Had some problems running the ruby script, working now.
