Thanks…. Keep on the way with this good work!
its on the way some new transitions ?
Ctrl-A don’t work in folders in the Project Bin. Also don’t work Ctrl-X, Ctrl-V, Ctrl-C for copyng and moving clips between folders.
Thank you for the hint. I added to “project bin improvements” https://invent.kde.org/kde/kdenlive/issues/287
Can someone explain what exactly is this preview scaling of monitors coming in the next update?
At the moment Kdenlive play back video and effect according the project settings (e.g.: 4K50fps, 1080p50fps, 720p50fps).
Preview scaling of monitors: you can set the playback resolution to full resolution (=project setting), 720p, 540p. If you have 4K clip with effect you can set it to 720p and video and effect are playback as you are in a 720p project. So playback is much smoother as the affects you have on a clip are scaled down for playback as well. BTW: all with CPU.
I want a keyframe curve interpolation function
You have 3 keyframe interpolations at the moment: linear, discrete, smooth. You find it on top of the effect panel just left of “go to the next keyframe” icon. Do you want more?
I want to use Bezier curve keyframes
Something like this: https://invent.kde.org/kde/kdenlive/issues/572 ?
This is exactly what I thought.
Frankly, the three interpolations were always mysterious for me. I could not see any differences. I always wanted “smooth” behavior (like ease-in, ease-out) but “smooth” seems to either do something different, or not work at all, or have so minor influence that it is not useful.
for Bezier curve interpolation
“Fix pasted clips with negative speed have wrong in / out.”
Yes! Works! Thank you so much!!! 😀
It is possible to add the function of Adjust Timeline Playback Speed While Editing?
would be useful instead of navigating frame to frame
Hi. I guess you are speaking about playback speeds.
By now it’s already possible to playback the timeline and the clip monitor faster in both directions. If you press the L key or the Forward button on the Monitor window bar you can increase the playback speed. More times you press more you speed up the reproduction. same it is for the backward playback: you can press the J key or the backward button on the bar. The K key works as stop.
If MLT will let us to implement it, we’d like to introduce slow motion playback too in the future.
Thanks for your participation.
Ohh ?, so it’s an MLT affair. Good that they have it in mind! It is the feature I have wanted the most since I saw it in Sony Vegas (you could put it in slow motion changing values from 0.1 to 1.0, where 1.0 was the normal speed).
Thanks for answering and cheer up my day!!! ?
Does this new version work without problems in Windows 10?
Yes. Kdenlive for windows is compiled in 64bit and compatible with Win7/10. It is as stable as the Linux version.
Please fix audio track on version 19.12 cannot show record control
Audio recording is possible trough the audio mixer (check the record button there). But the “timeline audio record in track headers” will be back with 20.04.
there are some additions regarding bugs or dysfunction, including:
1. CMYK Adjust (avfilter) does not work as it should
2. Screen Grab using audio does not work
3. “Go to Marker” menu to be added again, because it really functions to control a large number of markers
4. Many color manipulation effects that don’t work
5. Normalize and Normalize (2 pass) effects don’t seem to function properly
thanks and best regards from linux users in Indonesia.
can anyone tell me where i should put the newly installed effect files pls? I just can not find the answer to this.
How soon will use of GPUs be enabled again for rendering?
Which ones will be the target for development, e.g. Nvidia 1650 Super or an RTX board?
And/or AMD/Intel with certain properties?
It’s on the to do list. https://invent.kde.org/kde/kdenlive/issues/504. Bit tricky as Linux and Windows integration is different.
Anyone else gets audio crackling issues on the Windows version? Been having them for a while, and it always happens on audio and video in clip and project monitor.
Like so : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UXeXCN9bQ0
I use the latest version of Kdenlive Standalone on Windows and that doesn’t happen to me. It must be an isolated problem.
Ask in the telegram chat: https://t.me/kdenlive
I was using the installer version, so I switched to the standalone one just in case it was related to that, but still had it. Weird thing is that on the same computer but with my linux ssd this problem doesnt occur.
Thanks asked there to see what could help my situation.
Yeah, I have the exact same issue. Just upgraded from version 17.something, and now I get massive crackling noises while previewing clips.
Do you are on windows? Which processor and soundcard do you have? Do you play stereo or 5.1?
Hi, I had the same exact problem, but I switched my Windows 10 audio settings from 5.1 to stereo and now the crackling sound is gone. Thanks Merlimau for your comment!
I’ve been successfully using kdenlive 19.12 and 19.12.1 for some time (Windows 10, 64-bit, Intel graphics). Yesterday I launched 19.12.1 and the GUI was “zoomed in” and unusable – exactly as this bug report describes
It is possible that Win10 updated something in the mean time. Anyway I am surprised that GUI is dependent on some specifics of graphics drivers and this fundamental problem persists for such a long time…
I downloaded 19.12.3 – exactly the same problem. What is the workaround?
I rolled back Intel driver in Win10 back to the version from 2018 and immediately kdenlive UI started to work properly. Kind of a shame to have to use such an old driver…
…also noticed that on 2020-03-01, Win10 automatically updated Intel driver to version 22.214.171.12463, so I think this is what broke kdenlive UI.
I have HP ProBook with Intel HD Graphics 630.
I literally have the same exact problem like this. What should I do?
When will we get back the ‘Reverse’ tickbox for the ‘Slide’ Composition? I’ve been using that to transition from one clip to another several times in a video, but without that, it’s very uncomfortable to use this transition again, and again, and again in a whole video project.
problem downloading from https://files.kde.org/kdenlive/release does not start at all
and since i have ubuntu I will not go for the 0.9.10
Scroll on the bottom. 19.12.3-AppImage make it executable to run. Windows take the install or standalone version. Standalone -> go to the folder bin and double click Kdenlive.exe.
Unfortunately cannot try this version because application crash on start.
Do you are on Linux? If so delete kdenlive-appimagerc as descripted here: https://community.kde.org/Kdenlive/Configuration
Yes. I am on Linux. Kdenlive 19.12.3 build from git https://cgit.kde.org/kdenlive.git/tag/?h=v19.12.3.
Deleting kdenlive-appimagerc din’t help.
When started in console it reports:
Error : Core has not been created
P.S.: I test AppImage, it’s works fine. But it does not appropriate for daily use because it does not supports GPU accelerated effects.
Many video (and audio) effects are missing, as far as I’ve experienced, this problem has been present since 19.08.x, maybe even earlier.
Hello! After updating to this version, the program began to hang constantly when switching the video profile. In the settings, the preset is selected 1080p 25fps. I upload videos in the same format. Kdenlive suggests switching the preset and freezes. What can be done?
If you are on Linux use the appimage. If you are running the appimage already delete kdenlive-appimagerc see here https://community.kde.org/Kdenlive/Configuration. If you are on Windows delete Kdenliverc.
Hi, I’m trying this version in Ubuntu 20.04 and I get a lot of blackinsting errors. Am I missing some external dependencies (I tought that AppImage had all within)? Eventually, what should I install?
Thanks in advance.

Those are blacklisted because they are buggy or not threadsafe and might cause crashes.
I cans ee that all effects are blacklist in this version using focal fossa.
This leaves me only a couple of effects in the whole application..
any thoughts ?
how to open kdenlive
like i have tried to run it as administrator and double clicked on kdlenlive.exe under the bin folder but it still dosent opens on my windows 10 laptop. Can anyone help me?
Restart your computer and try again. If no success, hit CTRL+ESC and check if Kdenlive runs more than ones and if so, right click on kdenlice.exe and kill all Kdenlive you find and try again. Does your virus software block Kdenlive from starting?
This application crash on start.What to do now?
Linux or Windows? Do you have installed Kdenlive before and try whit a newer version? Does your virus program block Kdenlive?
Please tell the devs that the Ut Video preset is not working. It does not render out with Ut Video and PCM audio as listed. It renders as AVC with Vorbis for audio. This is based on version 19.12.3.
I am running kdenlive-19.12.3-x86_64.appimage, and seeing many plugins blacklisted. Mostly they seem to frei0r or avfilter plugins. And on in effects, all ‘Artistic’ category plugins are missing.
I have also tried to remove .config/kdenlive-appimage* but does not change anything.
Correct. Due to stability reason many effects are blacklisted. The team is working on the effects to make it more stable.
Hi! I don’t know if this is happening to only me, but I am not able to find “Dissolve”, “Wipe”, and “Slide” transitions in the effects tab!
These are the main transitions I need, so please tell me where I can find them.
Sorry! I just realized that it was in the compositions tab!
The slider bar under the audio timelines has strange behavior on my Linux system. When you click on the bar to slide the timeline back and forth, the slider’s control jumps way past the end of the project and requires you to slide it back. It would certainly be better when you click on the slide bar, it remain in the same place until you physically slide it.
The graphic equilizer in the “daily builds” doesn’t have frequency markers above the
sliders. It really needs those.
Also, if you have effects to apply to the “whole timeline” composition/effect stack features in tabs, there doesn’t seem to be away to drag&drop or otherwise move an effect to the composition/effect area … I tried it with several effects and none seem to work.
Could you share a screencast using peek or vokoscreen of the issues? And maybe also create a bug report?
Sure, will do it. I think that a timeline effects zone would be a good way to show the effect stack instead of in the little effects panel at the top. I saw this in one of the editors, forgot which one.
It smells a new version coming up pretty soon 🙂
Am I right?
Fantastic! Can’t wait
freze effect is not working good, for some reason.
Can anyone explain how to product audio wave visualization effect.
somewhere i red that audio file is to be inserted to video time line, but that is not being performed. system doesn’t allow.
Thanks for the great work ?
I am using Kdenlive on Linux. but it stop rendering and now it has a red line on the MP3 in the Audio only
Please test using the latest AppImage version 20.04.1. You can get it from the download section.
