Right now the openSuse updater did propose an update that I seem not to have thought about enough beforehand. Now I turned up to have changed to something that looks like kdenlive 0.8-2.3 x84_46 together with MLT 0.7.4 Frei0r 1.3-1.pm3.1 and ffmpeg 0.8.2
Since then, all effects concerning colour correction don't work any longer. Moreover any field to manipulate/handle the effect is gone. Most of them just stopped working. Until now, I never had similar problems after updating. After all, I shan't bother you at all, if this problem didn't occur at a very bad time for me as I am just finishing a video for a friend's professional site ... So am I supposed to step down to an older version? Should I wait for 0.8.2 to be out? Or, may it just be wiser to avoid packages at all?
