This tells Kdenlive how you want to combine your image with the clip under it. Ensure that you have a media player capable of playing. Here, you insert the animation frame in its correct position for each transition frame line kdenlivw and create a chroma frame in case you need it by filling the empty area to the right of the animation frame with the chroma color line As the resizing happens from the upper left corner downward and to the right, your mask will probably be displaced as it grows.

Then press the right mouse button and in the context menu select option Razor Clip. You can add video odenlive, sound clips, and other fancy stuffs to the tracks.

Now make your mask percent opaque. Now follow some steps to create a DVD with this project. Choose your way and, to continue with the kdnlive guide, be sure to move two clips or subclips to the timeline.

These powerful features are explained in detail in this pagebut for the purpose of this quickstart guide, we’ll focus on an easy one, the crossfade transition but see the warning at the top of this page! A keyframe at the beginning is the default, but check just in case.


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. At this point we are ready to render our project and see how it looks on our TV, PC, Kdenlive allows you to do so by splitting the original clip.


You can kdenlivd on these to change the size of your mask visually. If you want to, tutoriak the “Create Menu” option and the rest of the data will be accessible. Finally, line 3 draws a yellow circle, which is, of course, Pacman with his mouth completely closed Figure With Kdenlive you’ll be able to easily create a DVD video structure and burn it if you have installed the program k3b.

You can do so in two ways:. As soon as the mouse reaches a track, the clip will appear on the track. This will recenter your mask in the visible frame. If you reselect the clip and look in the clip monitor, you will see that the in and out points on the monitor show the new positions. Click on “Generate DVD” to do so. Now that you have some clips, you can add them to your project.

But do not worry, it still remains physically on your disk! This page was last edited on 18 Julyat You should click then with the mouse outside a clip to start doing the selection box.

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. If a tutoriao in the top layer the static image that contains opaque and transparent pixels is colored in i.


Video clip editors have been in short supply under Linux. The other way is to select a segment of a clip and then add this tutoriial to the timeline. Most video clips don’t have transparent pixels.

That means the chroma frames of the transition will work perfectly well as masks. Use some ImageMagick-fu to create your animation frames. We can also work with external image editors like GIMP to create more sophisticated titles and then add them to the project list as explained above. The panel to the top left holds various informational and editing tabs about the current project:.

Another transition this one made by you!

In this transition, this means that, when an opaque pixel in the mask is overlaid onto another opaque pixel in the clip on the second track, both are rendered transparent, and the clip on the third layer will show through. With the transition still selected, click on the Properties tab in the Effects and transitions panel second from left, next to the project bin.

Some transitions can be used also as video effects Picture in Picture, for example.
