Kdenlive monitor distortion
I'm running the latest update of Kdenlive, 16.12.3, on Manjaro KDE. I find that since the update from 16.12.2 the monitor window shows clips split vertically into segments, a bit like overlaying playing cards over each other from left to right so part of the face is showing. It's not just new footage, I reloaded a project completed in 16.12.2 and it did the same. It looks OK until starting play, once segmented it stays that way even when play is stopped.

As yet I haven't found a way to stop it. Anyone else had this and if so, how did you stop it, or did you? I find no mention of it on the KDE forum.

Re: Kdenlive monitor distortion
Don't rush to answer, it seems that suddenly Kdenlive will no longer handle 10-bit input, whether that's permanent or just a glitch in the update I can't say. I have been using ProRes Normal (4:2:2 10-bit) with no problems until the update. It seems OK with DNxHD 8-bit.

Cinelerra (GG 5.1) beckons for now!

I'm not seeing anything like that with 10-bit input formats in KDenLive 16.12.3 on Kubunu 16.10 (AMD 64). They play on the Clip and Project Monitors quite normally.

Seems like it's OK on Mint too. Maybe I'll try a re-install.

Nope, it was MLT, a re-install sorted it!

Re: Kdenlive monitor distortion
You could try updating your FFmpeg build to see if that does anything. Kdenlive relies on FFmpeg religiously.

Re: Kdenlive monitor distortion
Thanks Jack, everything was up to date.

Manjaro has access to the Arch User Repository, it seems that something I installed from there and recently updated had also updated MLT with the wrong version for Kdenlive. I removed that and re-installed the Manjaro version which made it work normally again.

I have yet to find what, if anything, changing MLT will stop from working properly.:-)
