Hint for previewing the alpha manipulation effects
The preview in Project monitor might go all strange when you select the composite transition in the timeline or the Video 1 in the timeline. (Reported at bug 2990 and fixed in ver >=0.9.5 of Kdenlive)
This is what the project monitor looks like when you have just selected the composite transition in the timeline. This is not what the rendered video will look like.
To get a preview of what the rendered video will look like, you need to click Video 1 and then Video 2 in the timeline.
What the preview looks like once you select Video 2 in the timeline. This is what the rendered file will look like
