I have a strange problem.
I am busy editing a kdenlive project with MPEG files from a JVC Everio SD camcorder.
When I import the video files they appear as 4:3 video. I can correct this by setting the 'force aspect ratio' to 1.42 for each clip. Playing back the clip in the clip monitor then is OK: it is displayed as 16:9. Also when I use the clips in the timeline, it is displayed as 16:9 in the project monitor.
But after a while the clips get played back as 4:3. The way this happens is as follows:
- When I play all through the project from the beginning, the video in the project monitor is displayed as 16:9. At a certain time in the timeline, at the beginning of a new clip, it 'jumps' to 4:3 in the project monitor.
- After this moment, everything (even before and after this clip in the timeline) is played back as 4:3.
- When I check the 'force aspect ratio' all clips are set to 1.42
- When I retry to set the 'force aspect ratio' (change it to 1.43 and then back to 1.42), some clips don't get played anymore in the project monitor, but they *can* be played via the clip monitor.
When I restart kdenlive, reload the project, all seems to be OK, but when I play back the whole project, at the same clip the problem just reappears.
The same results when I render the project to a file, at the same clip, the video is sqeezed back to 4:3 for the rest of the movie.
I ran into this issue editing a 30 minute movie and would like not to have to start all over again, so I hope maybe someone has a fix. I am running kdenlive 0.7.8 on an ubuntu 9.10, mlt version is 0.5.10
Has anyone got a clue?
Thanks in advance!
