This is not exactly about video effects and transitions, but I haven't found a more adequate place to place my request.
I'm actually looking for a functionality in Kdenlive that would allow me to generate automatically a whole text (8 pages) to multiple titles. I would like to in fact turn a MP3 (a 1h speech) and its transcription to a video.
For ease of use, I record audio on a video camera, while getting a better screen capture using a different system.
On the other video editing systems I use, I simply make the top track transparent so it becomes easy to see the action on both and sync it up; automatically getting the audio in sync with the capture footage.
After doing some searching, I can't find out how to do this in Kdenlive.
Can someone advise me of the best way to do this in kdenlive please?
i'm wondering what type(s) of scaling kdenlive uses? normally if i zoom-in i'd want some fancy scaling algorithm to "fill in the blanks" and make the zoomed-in video look good (sometimes this means sharp, other times it means smooth). but i'm planning to do some camera comparison videos and i want the zoomed-in footage to be just zoomed in without any type of optimization.
can anyone tell me how kdenlive handles this? are there options that affect it?
A section of my current project will have a still image using the full screen, while a stream of smaller pictures, large enough to make out, scroll horizontally across the bottom layer. Which effects should I use for this effect? The scrolling images would have a short gap between them. I'm pretty sure the slide transition will not do what I want.
