When you have finished editing, you can render your project via the Render->Export Timeline menu. This brings up a dialog, which allows you to choose your export format, export options, and filename to save as.

Export Profiles[edit | edit source]

When you click the File->Export Timeline menu item, a dialog will show you a list of possible formats and parameters which you can choose for the video file to be created. The items on this list are the export profiles. The stock profiles offered by Kdenlive are some of the most common ones, but you can create a profile of your own if you need a video with special properties, such as a certain screen size or video codec tag.

Be aware that this process can take a very long time (perhaps a few hours for a full DVD image of 4 GB)
