Dear Brett,

Did you try Kdenlive 0.4 svn version?

I did simple work using mpeg2 files as input. I could export the resulting files
without problem. Kdenlive and mlt seem to compensate the 1-2 second frame delay.

My question to the MLT and Kdenlive team is:

When using high quality mpeg2 files as input, is there an option to export using
ffmpeg -a copy -v copy to preserve the quality of the input mpeg2 files (except
when there is a transition). I guess it is called non-destructive video

Does Kdenlive provide non-destructive video editing?

Kind regards,
