[Kdenlive-devel] image clips improvements

in the video from my last vacation, I want to mix quite a few video clips and 
image clips. Creating image clips is currently a bit tedious -- you have to 
create every single clip for every image manually. A "batch creator" would be 
nice, where you simply select all the filenames and set a default duration. 
I'll see if I can come up with a patch for that.

More problematic however, is that the images will be stretched to the output 
size. If you have a rotated image (i.e. height > width), then this image will 
be stretched to fit to your output format (e.g. 4:3), making it look 
ridiculous. It would be nice to have an option to either perform the 
stretching or to keep the size ratio and fill the rest with a configurable 
background color.

If anyone can give me a pointer where to add this (mlt, I suppose), I might 
have a look at implementing this.
