Kdenlive/Manual/File Menu/Transcode Clips

This feature was temporally removed from Kdenlive 19.04 and was reactivated in Kdenlive 19.04.1.

Transcode Clips


Use this to convert a video or audio clip from one codec/format to another.

Choose one source file or multiple source files and a profile that represents the desired destination codec/format. Optionally change the destination path and file name and hit Start. Otherwise, hit Abort to close the windows.

Transcoding a clip should be faster than loading the clip into the timeline and re-encoding it into a different format.

  • Add clip to project controls if after the conversion, the new clip is added to the Project Bin.
  • Close after encode Uncheck this checkbox if there is the need to convert to another format after the conversion.
