Tutorials – Kdenlive and ImageMagick

That means the chroma frames of the transition will work perfectly well as masks. To set up your transition in Kdenlive, you’ll need four video tracks: For the purpose of this Quickstart guide, and in order to show you the basic Kdenlive functionalities, we’ll work with two of your clips, adding a title at the beginning, a video transition between them and a video effect kdehlive a part of one clip.

You can recenter your mask in the red rectangle by dragging its center over to tutoriak visible frame’s center. To get some clips, you could go to ‘YouTube’, or capture them directly using either your video camera or TV-capture-device.

If the box and the text have the same tutorixl, they may interfere! Move the transition’s timeline cursor the little triangle under the timeline about 10 centiseconds in and double-click on the cursor.

Now that you have some clips in your project, it is time to start editing them together into your dream video. This is useful if you want to use it later on. You can play now creating a new transition between clips in tracks 1 and 2 in the same way as explained above. It is all about calculating the ideal sizes for the animation frames, the transition frames, and the initial positions of all the moving parts.


This quick start guide will take you from start to finish of making your own video. In this tab you’ll be able to change the transition parameters if needed. One of the last options in the properties panel is the Compositing drop-down.

A yellow bar will appear between the clips in tracks 0 and 1 indicating your transition has been added to the project. Finally, line 3 draws a yellow circle, which is, of course, Pacman with his mouth completely closed Figure The small number of standard audio effects can be easily increased if you use the Ladspa plug-ins see this page to know how to load them.

You do this because, before creating the final transition frames, you have to fit your animation image mostly outside the frame on the right in the first few transition frames and mostly outside the frame on the left in last few.

The razor cuts before the current frame, so the right strip will contain the frame you’re standing on. Then you crop both transitory frames and give them their final place in the sequence lines 43 and I’ll mix things up a bit, because things get a little more complex when you want to make a transition with an animated mask. The selected zone between the in and out point will then appear there as a clip to be more precise, a subclip as we’ve selected only a part of the original clip.

Sometimes it is much more easier to understand something by watching how it is done, than by reading about it.

Click on your Composite and transform transition in the timeline and make odenlive transition about one second long. Jonathan Thomas is now trying to fill that gap with the first stable version of the OpenShot Video Editor. Odd Couple By using two very different tools, Kdenlive and ImageMagick, you can make animation less tedious and create some pretty cool video effects and transitions.


Put your image in the topmost track, the clip you want to use kdelnive a mask on kdenlibe track under that, and the clip you want to show through the hole made by your mask on the bottom-most track. Instead of doing this by hand, you can write a Bash script Listing 2 that uses ImageMagick instructions embedded in loops to do the repetitive work for you.

Also, you can define a pause between chapters if you have created such.

Click on the magnifying glass and select a small scale or click on the ruler and drag left. AtVersion Simply move the mouse cursor to the beginning or end of the clip you want to resize. That was simple enough, but no transitioning is happening.

To edit a transition and change parameters, you can double click on it the yellow bar. If we want to apply a transition, we need to overlap the required clips in different tracks.

Now follow some steps to create a DVD with this project.

Reinvent your network with DevOps tools and techniques: If your transition is two seconds long, that is 50 images at least.
