I used Kdenlive for an AMV as well. My biggest problem was, that the snipping doesn't work at 100 %. The rendered AMV doesn't match the preview. I had lots of clips that were longer or shorter than in the preview and the layering was wrong as well. It doesn't seem like it's a bug that was fixed as I tried it with the newest version as well. But overall Kdenlive is a really good editing software. But a s I edit my own videos shot in AVCHD as well I need something that supports this codec and might tend to more powerful software I have to pay for.

Yea Gods, I missed this! Been very busy as I have ended up doing two people's jobs as someone has quit AGAIN!

I have never found this to be a problem. I have used Kdenlive 0.9.4, 9.6, 9.8 and 8.10 (which was/is rubbish and a bug fest) and snipping, previewing and everything else is fine. It is true that all not effects are applied in preview mode due to the nature of the libraries but I have never encountered this in reality yet.

It doesn't seem like it's a bug that was fixed as I tried it with the newest version as well.


Did you try it with KDE Plasma 5? If not, it ain't the latest version! I am still stuck on 0.9.6 as I am having to hold onto Mint Linux 17.0 which is still on KDE Plasma 4. There is, as yet, no long term support edition of any Debian based Linux distro running Plasma 5 and that's my preferred route of operation. But I wonder if the bug you mention is specific in some way to what you are doing? Maybe it's the nature of your sources as I have never encountered this and I sure there would have been an outcry from Kdenlive users if this was a 'general' bug. I mention because the circumstances regarding your problems may be a specific issue the developers are not aware of. It could be worht telling them.

But overall Kdenlive is a really good editing software. But a s I edit my own videos shot in AVCHD as well I need something that supports this codec and might tend to more powerful software I have to pay for.


Well, yes. I mean,I'm not insisting people use Kdenlive or free, open source software. It's just letting people know that they have choice and, yes, AVCHD support is still an experimental feature in Kdenlive. I suspect you are using WAY more powerful software and hardware than me to tackle real high definition stuff! I have to make do with a dual core atom laptop! :-)

Anyway, whatever you are using - have fun!

Oh, and take a look here for the latest I have done in the world of AMV (maybe - please let me know what you think) here:

All done in Kdenlive - in a rush!
Cheers!
