Know issues about Kdenlive 0.7.1

Dear friends,

Just a quick note about Kdenlive 0.7.1 know issues:

  • H.264 export display aspect ratio is broken.
    Export 16:9 in H.264 will display in 4:3.
  • AVCHD decoding sometimes is slow. Timestamps may be incorrect. There are three possibilities for Kdenlive future:
    • Modify MLT and drop B-frames during display. 
    • Or make use of a future Nvidia VDPAU patch and implement CDPAU in MLT. Nvidia solution would allow 2K to 4K high resolution cams used in cinema.
    • Or use proxy editing (convert to low resolution during editing).

All this depends on the help of volunteers.

Kind regards,
Jean-Michel
