Can't render to any format

Hi all,

Kdenlive is for me a very good piece of software - there is only one exception... Rendering.
I can't render at all. I'm working with OpenSuSE 11.1 and with Kdenlive from SVN (using building wizard).
Editing works as for me very good (but I'm still missing some functions - but it's another subject ;-) ).
When I've finished my job I would like to render a DVD. But...
My DVD should be a collection of few clips and only what I get is the first picture from each clip. For example:
1. first minute I can see only the first picture from first clip
2. then 4 minutes I can see only the first picture of the second clip
and so on...
In Kdenlive is everything ok - I mean I can see everything ok in the preview window. There is no message in the command line.

Any ideas?

Regards,
Rafael

Forums:

This is probably related to bug that was recently fixed in MLT's git repository and related to some recent changes to FFmpeg. MLT was just re-organised and the MLT svn is not updated anymore, development switched to git.

So you have 2 solutions for the moment:

1- revert your FFmpeg version to something that is a few months older ( I think the builder wizard allows to choose an old revision number - 18630 should be ok).

2- Get the latest MLT from git repository:
git clone git://mltframework.org/mlt.git
But that is not easy to compile it with the necessary flags to work with your Wizard install of FFmpeg / kdenlive

In the next days, I will put detailled instructions on the website and hope that Mads can also update th Kdenlive Builder Wizard.

Hi,

Thanks - it has solved my problem :-)
I've chosen the second option. MLT from git repository and I've installed it where wizard would make it.
Now I can render my videos :-))

But the problem will be back as soon as I'll update the sources with the wizard...

Thanks again,
Rafael
