    Default KDENLIVE doesn't show transitions

    I'm re-posting this here instead of the applications section, as someone
    mentioned that it fits better here than there...

    Hi all, I am trying to put together a video project, and I set up my
    video in KDENLIVE, with transitions between many many video clips,
    mostly the "dissolve" transition. Not one of the transitions is rendered
    in the video correctly, or really it is better to say that not one of
    the transitions is rendered at all in the video.

    Also I put subtitles in the 2nd video line, with the hope that they
    would show up in the video as it goes by, but none of them show up.

    The transitions and subtitles do not show up in the preview window when
    I test run it or in the rendered video after I render it.

    Other than that it renders the video fine. Any ideas - do I need to
    "enable" the transitions to make them show up? Or do I need to enable
    the 2nd video line, or "bring to front" or something in order to make
    the title words show up in front of the video?

    I am running kdenlive 0.9.6 from packman in opensuse 13.1. I was running
    the version out of the OSS repo, but when this problem happened I
    switched to the packman version to see if it would change it. It didn't
    change anything and the video still runs just like I said, without the
    transitions or subtitles.

    Please help!

    Does a test video clip with only a few transitions work ?

    Do you have the video clips overlapped like this?

    Ok, that's great. That was the problem. I didn't know the clips had to
    be overlapped, I thought the transition effect would take care of that.
    The preview works now, thanks!

    I also see now that the subtitles have to be in the top video line for
    them to show up.

    The subtitles don't necessarily have to be in the top video line, just above the clip you want the subtitles on. Sometimes you have to add an extra video line, though, to get a subtitle on a clip that is on the top line, or re-arrange the clips. Also, there's a selection to choose which video line to put the title on. In the "transition" (seems to use "affine" by default, but I always change it to composite - no idea if that matters, though) you'll see "with track" and "auto" is the default selection. You can change that to any track you want the title on. This allows "stacking" transitions - I've done it before, but can't remember exactly what I did. I just remember using more than one transition or effect - probably effects..... my memory isn't so good these days....
