After the new update I finally have been able to make an fanvideo for BBC Sherlock with Kdenlive, which I've been wanting since months, but kdenlive hasn't been stable enough. What sall I say? I love kdenlive now more than ever,all the effects and possiblilties and that I don`t have to struggle with missing codecs. Thank you so much for developing it so well!
thought you might enjoy this music video I just produced with Kdenlive - my first using it! I worked on a woefully underpowered Toshiba netbook, used footage from my Optimus V phone (which I had to transcode to Lossless Matroska and demux in order to achieve sync) and some stills I took with a Nikon DSLR. I abused the heck out of the Baltan effect. :)
I was so happy that Kdenlive didn't crash even once. I was working on an Arch Linux 64bit Quadcore/4GB RAM with game video capturing made with ffmpeg (using more or less this method).
I had three moments of joy during editing:
1. When I first realized that I have to use keyframing of composition opacity rather than fade-to/from-black
2. When I noticed that the zoom effect would keep the correct zoom-percentage for each frame if I cut it.
3. When I realized that I can copy effects by dragging and dropping onto other "pieces of video" (although this didn't always work perfectly regarding keeping same values)
I started using Kdenlive 2 years ago and I'm using it from time to time. I can see progress in stability - only one crash during work on this clip :) I had to use ffmpeg to create small version of MTS files, work with small video files and then replace them with originals in text editor (for some reason proxy clips don't work on my laptop).
Another video production from Studio DLP. The original video was found at archive.org via Kdenlive's very handy On-line Resources feature. The sonic accompaniment is from an original piece made with AVSynthesis, a Csound composition environment.
