Thanks again for these detailed information!
Evert, I have not received the mail mentioned by Harald (that's why you
may thing I am ignoring it), it is not in the archive of the list
neither, can you resend it?
Can't we render directly at 25fps from kdenlive (and from a 50fps
project)? It uses to be possible (from the link of my first post),
generating bug as well?
