The "project folder" stuff is not yet implemented. The idea was to have all
files created by Kdenlive for your project saved in that folder (video and
audio thumbnails, title files, captured files...). The project file would then
be saved in that same folder.
Having relative path means that all files added to the project should be in
that same folder, which is not always practical since you often have your
video rushes on external drives or on another disk than the one where you
store your project file...
Could you explain briefly what would be the use of the relative path feature ?
My idea was to implement at some point a "package" feature that would copy all
project files (rushes, temporary files and chached files) to a folder so that
you can easily backup it...
