Hi. This is my first post here so go easy on me:) Apologies if this is posted in the wrong section.
Kdenlive looks great. I installed the latest version. I want to edit .MTS files ideally in Ubuntu AMD x64 10.10 operating system.
My desktop has an AMD Phenom Quad core processor and 4gb of Ram installed, just in case you need to know. Also a ATI Radeon HD 4350 Graphics card. The ffmpeg GStreamer plugin is installed and third party ATI display drivers. My camera is a Canon Hf200 Pal version.
The problem is the .mts video skips and has distorted sound when played along the timeline. I play the sound on it's own with no video and it's fine. The video playback is jumpy.
This seems to play fine in Windows 7, and even edits fine in tiny Windows Movie Maker. But I'd rather use Ubuntu and Kdenlive if I can. My plan is to -
1. Edit high definition footage .mts files in kdenlive and keep them as master copies.
2. Convert this master footage to standard definition for Youtube.
3. Convert the master copies to Blu-ray or DVD (this isn't the most important issue right now.)
Can this be achieved with Kdenlive?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
