This is a reminder for myself. I thought it could be useful to other people too, that's why I put it online.

  1. Record in 1080p, at 60 FPS, unless you want to go fancy and do 4k.
  2. Download Kdenlive.
  3. Using VLC, Tools > Codec information, check the framerate. All videos must have the same frame rate otherwise you might encounter issues.
  4. When creating a new project in Kdenlive, make sure to use the very same frame rate and frame size. This can be changed later in Project > Project Settings but it is not advised as it will shift clips randomly (I experienced it). There, also enable Proxy clips for videos larger than 1000 pixels.

That's about it!
