=46irst, thanks for your input!
Some comments: the design looks ok for me but the big problem is that you=20
can't really just let people change a codec or a bitrate because there are=
many incompatibilities. I don't understand all ffmpeg parameters but I did =
lot of trial & error to find some usable profiles for Kdenlive. My experien=
showed that you can't just let user change bitrate or any other parameter=20
freely, because it simply won't work. If you set the bitrate too low or too=
high for your image size, it will fail. Some codecs (quicktime for example)=
only accept frame size if it can be divided by 16... Also, you can't mix so=
audio codecs with some video codex...
It seems to me that it would almost require a database to calculate which=20
codecs are compatible, which size, which bitrate can be set for each size,=
If someone has an idea how to solve the issue, I am listening because that =
too much for me.

Well I don't really care... the "create image clip" menu entry still allows=
you set the clip duration without having to open the clip properties=20
afterwards, but you think it is cleaner to remove it I can do it...
