Rendering options and Kdenlive profiles may be quite complicated when it comes to exporting to professional formats or specific devices or in very high quality.
I was wondering it we could manage the profiles online, using Drupal? Then a PHP script would generate the export profile for Kdenlive. You would only need to download it OR kdenlive future versions may be able to fetch the export profiles on the web.
Also, I would like to explore quality settings, because default export options have too many artefacts.
Some formats are only variants of other formats. Examples:
D10 (aka Sony IMX)
ffmpeg -i <input_file> -vcodec mpeg2video -r 25 -pix_fmt yuv422p -minrate 50000k -maxrate 50000k -b 50000k -intra -flags +ildct+low_delay -dc 10 -flags2 +ivlc+non_linear_q -ps 1 -qmin 1 -qmax 3 -top 1 -bufsize 2000000 -rc_init_occupancy 2000000 -rc_buf_aggressivity 0.25 -an output.m2v
DVCAM / DVCPRO25 / DVCPRO50 Encoding
Collaborative management would provide higher feedback and better quality.
The database would look like our camcorder database and would stay simple.
What do you think?
