Sounds good. But Kdenlive will probably soon support XCF files directly.
What if I open and have to export. I would prefer an automatic solution.

Okay. Thanks.

My idea was:
* PAL resolution is 520x576: 1.25 ratio
* 4:3 resolution: 1.33 ratio
* 16:9 resolution: 1.78 ratio

In Gimp, I create a 16:9 PAL image, with the following custom settings:
X = 520 pixels
Y = 576 x 1.25 / 1.78 =  404 pixels

X dpi = 72 dpi
Y dpi = 72 x 1.78 / 1.25 = 102 dpi

It works quite well for large text, but not for small images, 
which are very slightly distored in Kdenlive.

Any suitable alternative settings?

Kind regards,
