I am just taking my first look at kdenlive, so please be kind!
I have created a very simple project with one clip and one title frame. I have tried to render it to different formats, but everything I've tried ends in a crash.
I'm running Fedora 17 and kdenlive was apparently installed with the default installation because it was "just there." It is Kdenlive version 0.9.2.
I have seen a lot of posts to the forum for the render crashing issue, and it seems to be a widespread issue with a lot of underlying causes. So I'm hoping there is an outline of things to check. I'm sure there is just a missing library or supporting program somewhere but I don't know where to begin.
With each attempt, the rendering seems to get to the very end, and then I get something like this:
Rendering of /home/xxxxxxxx/Videos/kdenlive/goofy_test_1.avi crashed
[swscaler @ 0x7fd5e9f277c0] Warning: data is not aligned! This can lead to a speedloss
I will say that the render does seem to produce a viewable video file, so perhaps the crash is something innocuous?
