"Some of the powerful features of Kdenlive include,
Support for a wide range of camcorders and cameras, including:
"1. Low resolution camcorder (Raw and AVI DV editing).
2. Mpeg2, mpeg4 and h264 AVCHD (small cameras and camcorders).
3. High resolution camcorder files, including HDV and AVCHD
4. Professional camcorders, including XDCAM-HD streams, IMX (D10)
streams, DVCAM (D10), DVCAM, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50 streams and DNxHD
streams (decoding only, encoding untested). Please note that
Kdenlive does not offer the original codecs, but only that we use
FFmpeg free software codecs, which can read original streams and
sometimes export as well. When you own a camcorder, there is no
reason why you should not be able to read your own films."
