Configuring the Default Transition Duration

New in version 16.08.1.

You can now configure the default duration for all newly created transitions. Before this, 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 all those users who work a lot with transitions.


Go to Settings ‣ Configure Kdenlive ‣ Misc category. Under the heading Default Durations you’ll now find the new fifth 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 will be interpreted on the basis of the current project’s framerate. In contrast, the other fields hh:mm:ss are independent of the framerate.
