Configuring the Default Transition Duration

You can configure the default duration for all newly created transitions. In versions prior to 16.08, all new transitions were always 65 frames long - and this translated to varying default durations, depending on a project’s frame rate. This new configuration option should appeal to all those users who work a lot with transitions.


Menu ‣ Settings ‣ Configure Kdenlive

Go to Menu ‣ Settings ‣ Configure Kdenlive ‣ Misc. Under the heading Default Durations you will find the option to configure the default duration for newly created transitions. Enter a duration in the usual format hh:mm:ss:ff.

Please note that the frames (ff) field element will be interpreted on the basis of the current project’s framerate. In contrast, the other field elements (hh:mm:ss) are independent of the framerate.
