@passthejoe I just do the Project>Add Title Clip option. Then I customize the title, and then drag it into the timeline.

Occasionally, I'll do a zoom/rotate on a title just to give it some sparkle.

I'll often overlay two titles on top of each other for fun.

@passthejoe Someday I'll actually do a tutorial of how I use Kdenlive. It's been something I've been meaning to do, but it's slightly a challenge because of recursive issues with my editing workflow.

I'd probably want to have two PCs on my desk to do the demo- one to be the pretend PC which you see on screen, and the other to actually edit the final video. Doing it in a VM might run into bottlenecks.

@passthejoe hmmm, did the WAV work ok? I wonder if there's a bug in MP4 processing?

FWIW, I don't have any such issue in Kdenlive.

I use unique email addresses for different companies. Some of these addresses now get lots of spam, so obviously they were either sold or compromised. Top offenders: Holiday Inn, O'Reilly, Infoworld, Linux Magazine, and, um, Myspace.

I moved from openshot to kdenlive a few months ago. I miss a lot of the canned effects, but I don't miss the toxic upstream. I contributed to kdenlive a small improvements to make some more interesting effects and the patient guidance I was given was night and day to openshot's stressed single developer.

Kdenlive is really remarkable- it doesn't get enough credit as an awesome editor.

I didn't understand the Red Hat culture very well, but I've been schooled.

If you are a student, chances are you can get a free CLion just by giving your university email.
They even give a nice graduation gift in the form of a rebate.
They are based in Russia (and have vocally expressed their disagreement with current affairs).

Also, I thought I wouldn't be alone in being bothered by this problem, but I pretty much was (and am).

I'm running CentOS Stream 9 in a VM, but I'm not eager to use it as a daily system. RHEL-like distros are still hard to use on the desktop, even with EPEL and Copr.

Fedora has everything package-wise, and it has a solid security model and isn't being starved for updates by a parent company. Same is true for Debian, Ubuntu, Suse, Arch, Mint, Pop OS, Elementary, Slackware, etc.

Still hoping for a turnaround in CentOS Stream 9, and that will happen if it's a true upstream to RHEL.

I removed the blog posts because my efforts to shed light on the problems with CentOS Stream security updates only resulted in people shrugging their virtual shoulders or telling me to piss off. CentOS Stream 8 gets a new kernel roughly once a month, and almost always lags a couple of weeks behind RHEL. Same happened for an httpd (aka Apache Web Server) patch.

The nicer Red Hatters have told me things will be better in Stream 9. Now that RHEL 9 is out, we can check on that.

It's so weird that microwaves do weight defrost by tenths of a pound, so you have to convert 1/16th ounces to arbitrary tenth units. It's not like there's a technical reason. Base8 octal is easy for computers.
