Some real quick info. I'm running my set up on a MacBook Pro 5,5 with 2.53GHz processor 4GB, Snow Leopard, MacPorts 1.9.1, Kdenlive 0.7.8_0.
After finally getting kdenlive installed through macports I have finally been able to use it. However after loading clips and just testing out the playback on the clip and project monitor I've noticed that the audio and video are a bit choppy and my fans start roaring. I popped open Activity Manager and found that the application guilty of +170% CPU usage is kdenlive. I have Kdenlive 0.7.8_0 on my Ubuntu partition and works fine (minus having to make my background black in order to use the project monitor) and it only does that for a brief second or when I go to render a project. Does anyone have any advice, other than to use Kdenlive on my ubuntu partition, on how to fix this? Any help is appreciated.
