Hi,

Is there anyone who use for everyday kdenline and have some experience in it? (I am not interested for the monent in different programs)
I know newer vesrsion usually is better but I hate those crashes...

[1] I would like to use it smoothly without many crashes, so I would like ask first about versions you recomend for stability - 0.7.8 or 0.8?
[2] Which Nvidia drivers do you recomend for stable work 270.41.19 or 270.41.06 or maybe 260.19.44?
[3] Whate else?

After few weeks of testing I can say...

Its better to use 0.8 than 0.7.8. In 0.8 I had only a crash with one project with titles (in comparation with 0.7.8 ) - but in this month its coming 0.8.2 with many bug solved.

If someone has a problem, you can try different nvidia-drivers.

If you have an older hardware or not enough memory, and you need to work on full HD files, all you need to do is:
[1] Go to [Settings] menu and -> [Configure Kdenlive]
[2] Go into [Project Defaults] and click on [Proxy clips]
after this restart Kdenlive and try again :)

Now, after adding any new movie file, you have to wait till kdenlive will make a copy of this movie in smaller resolution (proxy). After few seconds (or more) - you can work smoothly in your editor and rendered project anyway will be in HD (proxy is only to work smoothly in kdenlive).

I have long been interested in kdenlive. A couple of months ago my hard drive died, but I have since gotten a new one and am in the process of reinstalling my favorite applications. I have just emerged kdenlive 0.9.2, but I see that 0.9.6 is released. How do I go about getting the latest version?

Thanks,
~Mark

Unfortunately, I am using AMD64 which is marked as unstable for 0.9.6. So I have 0.9.2 and when I run the Config Wizard, it says that the DV module (libdv) is required if the avformat is not installed, and that xine is needed to preview any DVD's created. I have not yet figured out how to use an ebuild file to get the later version, but I think the other issues need to be resolved first. I have libdv installed, but kdenlive apparently doesn't see it. As for xine, I don't know. I've installed xine-lib, but that didn't help.

Any ideas, help?

Thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark,

I suggest after 2 yeras with kdenlive and Gentoo as best options (in link bellow) - click kdenlive
http://www.mltframework.org/bin/view/MLT/BuildScripts
to use a full and up-to-date development package with all the freshest possible parts in it (kdenlive + frei0r + mlt + ffmefg + etc). Everything all together in one file. You do not have to worry about amd64 or ~amd64 or out-date ffmpeg or frei0r or anything else.


All you need to do is:
Quote:
mkdir kdenlive
cd kdenlive
(download script to ~/kdenlive)
chmod +x build-kdenlive.sh


and run it (everything explained in link above):
Quote:
cd kdenlive/<date>
./start-kdenlive

Hi Xywa,

I am very glad that I re-found this thread. I have had to rebuild once more since my last hard drive died. I am now getting back my kdenlive and your tip below worked just perfectly. I have all my modules as well, but I don't have my webcam detected. So that is one more thing I have to work on. I do have one question, though. I can start the latest version with:
Code:
./start-kdenlive

in the folder that was created. And I get Version 0.9.7 (rev. v0.9.6-134-g1f0072e running on KDE 4.10.5, which is great. I did, however, emerge it also before I used the build script and when I launch it with the icon in Multimedia applications, I only get version 0.9.2. So is there any way I can get my newest version linked back to that icon? I mean, if I have to run it from a command line, then so be it. But it would be nice to avoid that extra step. :wink:

Thanks for providing that help,
Mark
