Hello friends. I'm running 13.10 and kdenlive. I'm working on a video from my wedding a ways back. I noticed in the timeline if you play it in preview mode that the first picture looks a bit strange with grainy lines and whatnot going through it. I had hoped that running through a full render would solve this, but if anything it's worse in the final product. I rendered the video as an x264 MP4. A picture (well, a video) is worth a thousand words, so take a look and let me know if there's something I can do to make kdenlive work a bit nicer with this.
