Kdenlive is a robust video editor Windows operating system built with KDE frameworks. The MLT framework handles a lot of the video processing itself. Keep in mind you might need to download FFmpeg or some other open-source codecs as well to make it work with your computer. Core features include a timeline with multiple tracks, a clip list, transitions, and other effects.
Multi-track editing is sometimes necessary if there are different audio or video tracks you need. You can choose the format you want and will typically be able to convert it to another format, so you are working with the same ones throughout the project. We liked the ability to arrange our interface in a custom way and create shortcuts. This certainly sped up the workflow needed to get the projects done.
Effects and transitions are a big part of video editing. Sometimes you want to change colors, make audio changes, or replace another part of the video. This is all possible in the program. This is very convenient, especially when trying to balance it.
Sometimes, you simply want to edit the end result on a computer or take your work home with you. You can make lower resolution versions for the editing, and then it will render back to the high-quality video for the final product. What’s more, you can have the application automatically save backups of your work every few minutes. This means you don’t need to worry about losing all of those hours of effort if a mistake happens.
You can’t always see real-time feedback when video editing. However, this app will let you see the feedback or render different parts in advance. That way, everything syncs up on the timeline in the exact way that you wanted it to.
Kdenlive can be a valuable addition to your video editing software selection, allowing you to access a variety of powerful features in an open-source environment.
