Everything here looks good except the "r=25 s=320x240." Remove them.
Technically, yes they are understood by MLT, but it is not the

these settings and will add resolution as well as other things that
are necessary to change resolution different from your project

How do you know? What does kdenlive report on the console when you run
Kdenlive from a terminal window and Render?

Maybe I do not understand the question. Do you refer to the Group
field in the custom render profile dialog?
