I'm writing a simple GUI that should do this:
1.) take a folder with video files and transcode them to kdenlive friendly format.
q: what formats does Kdenlive prefer for hd and sd resolutions (speed (responsiveness) and likehood of crashing are important to me)
2.) open Kdenlive with project properties set (resolution, framerate) and clips added.
I guess the easiest way to do this is to create new project file and just open it.
q: how to create minimal project file? is there any documentation on this? any suggestions?
q: is there a different way of doing this?
3.) after some projects are finished editing, batch render them
I guess the best way to do this is pretty similar to Kdenlive-included rendering scripts.
Thanks for reading this, and thanks for trying to help me with this.
