afarid added a comment to T5435: Adjust key frame by time code in Volume (keyfamable).

One way how Blender handles this and which I like is the ability to zoom in on the keyframes for fine adjustment. Maybe we could have something like this.

afarid added a comment to T812: Add image preview to effects.

Kube removes the preview, because it's useless to have a random color and a useless first letter. Group them would be a better way. Maybe have a gif preview of a transition or an icon like PowerPoint did it. I made some icons for libreoffice impress transitions and can support if needed.

afarid added a comment to T6545: Splash and Welcome screen.

Few thoughts :

  • I fear that a black splash screen on a black window wouldn't stand out enough, would it?
  • I prefer @benjaminnelan separation between links and recent projects

    Other wise buttons are nice!

afarid added a comment to T5174: Timeline UI and interactions.

A suggestion for you to consider whenever you see it fit. It would be great to have an option to split the stereo channels of an audio track into two mono tracks. This is handy when sometimes we record from the external mic and the camera's internal mic at the same time and then while editing need to use, remove or apply effect to only on one of the stereo channels. I can make a mockup if needed.

afarid added a comment to T5661: Advanced UI Ideas.

Cool! I really like how much colour this would add to the timeline, having the track labels coloured like that is a much quicker way of seeing the pairs of tracks that will often have linked audio/video.
How did you envision the colours on the track label cycling through though as you add more tracks?

afarid added a comment to T5174: Timeline UI and interactions.

Just a thought about groups to further the discussion. I think down the line we can groups tracks as well that way we can reorder groups of tracks. A usecase of this is when lets say we create a group of music tracks and a group of audio fx tracks and then we can move them up or down the timeline for adjustments with the video tracks.

Not trying to be an ass here, but why would you need something like this atm? From your reaction in the forums it seems like such a grave feature not to have... what kind of footage are you editing/delivering with? Raw video? Not saying this is not important but trying to understand the rationale behind your proposal, can you elaborate?

Farid, this is one I would also like to see resolved! I often could work with reduced track hight just perfectly, but not without the track header controls. Track titles could be abbreviated, but I would really like to see a resizeable track header area (by dragging the divider between the header and the tracks).

Frankly I worry about the titler and its features/bugs consuming too much time... I would rather not have it and worry less to handle more code/bugs. I would rather have a proper EDL export and use Blender or Natron for this kinds of tasks but I understand that it might be overkill for many people and see its worth. :)

I might offer an encouragement on the features page: I would focus on the core strengths and features of Kdenlive itself before putting any affiliated technologies. If your target audience is video editors, film production studios, professionals, etc., then they're going to be interested in Kdenlive, first, and what IT can do. They need to see what makes it great. Flexible layout, advanced trim tools, timecode, multiple edits in a single project (sort of), GPU processing (once it's perfected -- HUGE feature), keyframe effects... you get the idea. I think that would have a bigger impact on viewers.

It's a start, but most people won't read that amount of text and start writing bug reports anyway. So, in my humble opinion, we need a short and concise intro that explains how to write a good Kdenlive(!) bug report.

All the other details are for those who want to make most of bugzilla. Most users won't bother reading all the stuff.

So it should simply say: How to write a good bug report, followed by only three or four important rules. For instance, along these lines:

  • steps to reproduce: if the bug can be reproduced using only a few simple steps, this will often suffice. Please make sure that your list of steps is complete.
  • minimal example: help the devs to reproduce your problem by attaching a minimal Kdenlive project. A minimal example consists only of the clips in project bin and timeline absolutely necessary. However, please don't attach video or image clips to your report unless explicitly asked to do so.
  • stack trace: if Kdenlive crashes, please add a stack trace to your report. A good stack trace...
