Hey guys!

Small update:

Compiling the latest git of ffmpeg did not help unfortunately, also converting the audio to 48khz did not work.

The only way I have been able to get rid of all audio pops in a 5 minute video is by changing the project profile from 59.9FPS to 25FPS or lower.
I am now convinced that it is actually the frame rate of the video that is at fault.

Now I use a lot of slide animations which I would like to be rendered at 60FPS in order for them to appear smooth.

Is there any way I can export the audio with 25FPS pacing, but still be applicable to a 60FPS source?

I am out of ideas, unfortunately.

>> Hi John,
>> I don't know but reading Eugen's email I get the impression that if you can use 48kHz audio this problem will go away-but I may be mistaken! Also, if it is a problem with FFMPEG then we are looking for a work around in Kdenlive rather than a solution. So, if I'm correct about 48k audio, then my suggestions would be...
>> · Can you acquire your audio in 48kHz in the future?
>> · If not can you use the 'Extract Audio' command in Kdenlive (right click on file in Project bin > Extract Audio>Wav 48000Hz ?
>> · For your current project that might not be a practical solution as you will have to replace all your edited audio on the timeline. So maybe your best option would be to use the Render > Stem Audio Export, and then create a 48kHz audio mix in Audacity or Ardour, then bring this back into your Kdenlive project, turn off all the old audio tracks and re-export with the new 48kHz audio file.
