Dear all,

I'm trying to crop a DVB video saved as 4:3 into a 16:9 (without the black strips).

Kdenlive: 0.7.9 (dev ppa)
MLT: 0.6.3 (dev ppa)

I've tried all the tools for cropping:
- crop: it does no work at all. I changed values in any way, tried to export but without changes

- Transl. and zoom: the interface is not very easy, but I could set the 16:9 dimensions with good proportions. The yellow rectangle and image are not in synch at all.
The problem then is that the exported video has a small image (scaled about 2/3) not showed in the preview (I think my error).
Frankly, I'm not able to use this function :-(

- Scale and Tilt: this function is easy to understand and use. The preview works fine but... the exported 16:9 file has two vertical black strips "cropping" it at 4:3. Just to explain better I add some image:

I've tried to change project properties without luck.

If I'm doing something wrong, please help me! :-)

thank you
Dino

Wait a moment!
I've made some tests on my work PC and... it seems my home PC has something wrong.
Crop and Translation&Zoom work! I haven't the original video for tests, but the effects work.

I think there's something wrong with some library. I'm not able also to use selection.
I'll try to reinstall all the dependencies.

I hope to solve all the questions :)

*** OK I FOUND THE PROBLEM *** (NOT SOLVED)

** THE PROBLEM COMES OUT WHEN I TRY TO CROP/ZOOM A FILE THAT IS A KDENLIVE PROJECT ITSELF **
Maybe a bug? Let me know...

I am able to use Crop and Pan and Zoom OK on a kdenlive project as a clip. I am using latest unreleased versions from source.
