Numerous rendering and other problems in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx

Hello -

Kdenlive is a wonderful piece of software. Unfortunately, I'm having a number of problems trying to render my project, which is about an hour long. Inputs are:

  • MP4 streams from a GoPro HD Hero camera:
    H.264/avc video at 720p and 59.960024 frames/sec
    mppeg4 AAC stereo sound at 48kHz and 128kpbs.
    in MP4 container
  • various MP3 music files.
  • a couple of title clips.

I have a bunch of transitions set up (wipe/disolve) as well as fade to and from black, and some audio transitions and fades.

The issues I have had are these:

  1. Crashes during editing. I can live with these by saving frequently. One instance I know this happened was when I removed and audio clip from a track (it was at the end of the timeline).
  2. When rendering to a file in similar format as the input listed above, at 18000k in 2 pass mode, this ended after about many hours with the message that rendering crashed. I don't have further details now, but I'd be happy to retest.
  3. Rendering to a file in the same format as under 2. above but single pass was most successful. It took abbout 16 hours and ended with a "rendering crashed" message but resulted in a playable file. During playback, however, video and audio stops about every 15 seconds for about half a second and then continues. This happens in VLC, Totem Movie Player and Windows Media Player. It's disruptive.
  4. Rendering to DVD format (NTSC 16:9) ended in a "rendering crashed" message too, after about 6 hours, but also resulted in a playable file. The pauses/hiccups or whatever you want to call them, are not present in the resulting VOB, but the title clips are way off in the video: they show up much too late.
    I will include the error log of this rendering attempt below.
  5. In the editing phase, I tried to add a Theora clip produced with recordmydesktop. This didn't work very well: I couldn't see the video in the project monitor. It'd be cool if I could use this in the project.

Please let me know if you know what is causing all these troubles? I'll list some specification of my system and versions of software that I think is relevant below. Let me know if more information is needed - I'll be happy to furnish more information or retest if this can help to get everything running smoothly.

System is 64 bit Ubuntu Lucid on a 3.4 GHz Phenom 2 quad core, with two SATA drives in software RAID 1 and 4GB of ram.

These are version numbers of Ubuntu packages. I can look for versions of individual files if necessary, let me know what you need:

kdenlive: 0.7.7.1-0ubuntu1
melt: 0.5.4-1
ffmpeg: 4:0.5.1-1ubuntu1
libavformat52: 4:0.5.1-1ubuntu1
libavcodec-extra-52: 4:0.5.1-1ubuntu1+medibuntu1
frei0r-plugins: 1.1.22git20090409+repack-0ubuntu3 (lucid)

This is the error log of attempting to render the DVD format file:

Forums:

i don't have any problems rendering to mp4 format using x264 10k 2 pass and aac audio. My software is newer then your though. look into upgrading to find out if this is the cause.

kdenlive =same version as yours
melt= 0.5.6-0ubuntu0~sunab~lucid1 from sanub's PPA here:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/sunab/ppa/ubuntu lucid main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/sunab/ppa/ubuntu lucid main
ffmpeg=4:SVN-r24901-1
x264=2:0.104.1698+gitc41b8f0-1
as for libavformat, i activated the medibuntu repo which i believe you're already using.

NOTE: ffmpeg and x264 are installed using this google bash script: http://code.google.com/p/x264-ffmpeg-up-to-date/

Good luck

Thanks for response.

I have not made any changes yet, but things got worse tonight for unknown reason. Now Kdenlive crashes every time I load my project. This seems to happen while generating thumbnails for audio mp3's.

If I start it from a terminal, I find this on stderr:

KCrash: Application 'kdenlive' crashing...
Warning: connect() failed: : No such file or directory
KCrash cannot reach kdeinit, launching directly.

Hmm, I added Sunab's ppa and updated melt and also ran the ffmpeg script (I'd prefer not to bypass the package system though), but no luck. I seem to be stuck with it crashing while loading the project now.

I'll try to figure out what's happening.

Please try to delete the thumbnails cache (the files in the thumbs directory).

A general suggestion from my side is to avoid mp3 files whenever possible (convert them to wav instead). I always had trouble when working with mp3 files, perhaps this has changed now, but I prefer to remain on the secure side and avoid nasty issues.

You can use the command line to convert them directly with ffmpeg:
$ export IFS=$'\n'; for i in *.mp3; do j=$(echo $i|sed -e 's/\.mp3/.wav/'); ffmpeg -i $i $j; done
(IFS is the internal field separator; setting it to newline only for this command prevents bash from separating file names at white spaces as well.)

Thanks for those suggestions. I've had issues with mp3 files. However, I made progress without this.

Somehow by uninstalling and reinstalling Kdenlive and Mlt, I'm now able to load my project again. I tried a bunch of things and I don't know what actually fixed things.

But I think I've figured something out. I'm now able to render successfully. It seems that the key to this is to make sure the Video Profile in the Project Settings matches the format that I'm rendering to. I don't see why things should work this way, I thought Video Profile was just a preset, but I'm happy that I can now render!

The error message "first_image == NULL get image died" occurs inside the Speed effect. That effect is somewhat unstable depending on the file format and how well it supports seeking. It appears as if a h264/mp3 clip is struggling to cooperate. You might try to see if removing that effect helps.

Hello

I've got the same experience.

Running Kdenlive 7.7.1 under Kubuntu 10.04.2 LTS.

I've got around 63 clips in my movie, around 95 per cent of them have the Speed effect applied to slow it down. Clips are H.264 encoded from Sony HD camcorder. I can't render the movie, it always crashes at some point with the same error message as I see in this thread.

However, I was able to render the e.g. 1 min part of the movie, where it crashes (half minute before, half minute after), so what I have done as a workaround was to put guides into movie: START, MIDDLE, END and then render 2 movies (START - MIDDLE, MIDDLE - END) without any problem. Then I have joined these parts together with either mencoder or avimerge tools easily.

Does anybody know about some more convenient solution for this type of error? Many thanks.
