Dear Dan, i tried your tip yesterday night and it seems the cropping is not correct (i may not have the latest mlt+kdenlive), since the resulting file is totally bloack (and has no sound).

The file is supposedly a PAL 16:9 DVD one so your command should be correct.

I tried to play with inigo but fail to understand its way of doing things (i do not have internet access home so i was stuck). If you have a pointer to some dock, i'd be happy to have a look at it.

Note that if i merge the 4/3 dv file and the 16/9 DVD file in kdenlive and export the whole process as a 16/9 project, the rendering is fine (the 4/3 file has band on its right and left edges, as exepected). I forgot to test the opposite, but i'll try later.


Thanks in advance,
