Works correctly on my system with latest Kdenlive & FFMPEG svn... I did a
quick test mixing a low res mpeg with a color clip and dv file, sepia filter
and crossfades, all formats exported fine.
For your info, exports are all passed to FFMPEG using the parameters found in
the file exports.profile in the profile folder.
For example. DV AVI export has an entry:
2:HQ:DV:Avi DV:PAL::avformat:PAL:avi:format=avi vcodec=dvvideo
The last section of the line (after the last ":") is directly passed to FFMPEG
I have to say that I am far from understanding all FFMPEG parameters, so I did
just put some parameters that seemed to work for me, but if anyone with a
better knowledge wants to spend some time on it, there is probably room for
I think we could maybe one day ask on the ffmpeg-users mailing list what
people think are the best parameters to convert a dv video (MLT internally
works with dv resolution) to the various export formats... But for sure there
is no easy answer.
