My two younger brothers (8 and 10 years of age) have been using the QT based Stopmotion program on Linux for a while now with a webcam. Unfortunately it lacks many features and has bugs. I'm currently trying to find another solution for them and the thought occurred to me that a full video editing application with added stop motion like features might be ideal.
I'm not very familiar with Kdenlive, so some of these features may already be supported.
Feature wish list:
- Preview camera input
- One key press to capture a single still image (space bar for example)
- Ability to do editing on a frame by frame basis
- Quick editing of a frame image in an external program (such as the Gimp) and reloading when it is saved
- Support for slower frame rates
- Advance forward/back 1 frame at a time, with key presses
Does this seem like something that might fit in with the goals of Kdenlive? Or is it more targeted at video captured from cameras?
