transitions are not rendering in preview or rendered video

Registered Member
Hi all, I am trying to put together a video project, and I set up my video in KDENLIVE, with transitions between many many video clips, mostly the "dissolve" transition. Not one of the transitions is rendered in the video correctly.

Also I put subtitles in the 2nd video line, with the hope that they would show up in the video as it goes by, but none of them show up.

The transitions and subtitles do not show up in the preview window when I test run it or in the rendered video after I render it.

Other than that it renders the video fine. Any ideas - do I need to "enable" the transitions to make them show up? Or do I need to enable the 2nd video line, or "bring to front" or something in order to make the title words show up in front of the video?

I am running kdenlive 0.9.6 from packman in opensuse 13.1. I was running the version out of the OSS repo, but when this problem happened I switched to the packman version to see if it would change it. It didn't change anything and the video still runs just like I said, without the transitions or subtitles.

I am using mlt-6 I think -
Code: Select all
> rpm -qa | grep mlt

Please help!

Your best bet it to put subtitles on Video track 1 and video on Tracks 2 and 3. That way when you drag a title onto the time line you get an automatic affine transition added. (Unless there is a transition on the time line only the top most video track will show in the final rendered video.)
