Hi kednlive users,
I have been using linux and all sorts of multimedia apps for many years now. I had tried kdenlive for kde3 a while back, but never could do more than a couple of things before it crashed no matter what versions, prebuilds, build from source etc etc options I tried.
Well things have certainly come a long way! KDE 4 version looks terrific and is very very stable - I may actually be able to do an entire project with this version. So just wanted to say good work to the devs and keep it up!
I have noticed one bug so far - importing DV PAL 16:9 from my panasonic nvgs400 camera into a 16:9 project is only shown as 4:3 with the sides having black bars unless I do the following -> force the clips pixel aspect ratio to 1.42 after putting it into the timeline, and then dragging it into the track below the original one I put it in! It then displays correctly (my camera uses anamorphic squeeze 720x576 not fake 4:3 with the top and bottom cut off)
Other thing is, how can I flip the image? I filmed some stuff upside down low to the ground on my tripod and want to flip it the right way around. the rotate effect did nothing but give me a black screen.
Anyway, not to complain - it looks like this project is really going somewhere, I hope to stay and become a frequent user and helper on the forums
