I found a Bug in Kdenlive 24.05.2 and reported too but here is a workaround till it gets fixed

Hi Kdenlive team,

NOTE: This bug has been reported (Bug id 489985) Until it gets fixed… here is a the workaround

As I had to multitask on one system, I have to mute kdenlive while editing sometimes. so that… it wont interfere with Audio recording done by my friend on the 2nd Monitor. In this process I found a Bug in 23.04.3. But after finding the latest version (24.05.2) I wanted to check before reporting here. I can confirm even 24.05.2 too is having this same bug. Looks like it went unnoticed for some reason, maybe no one never mute Master while editing. Below are the details.

By the way I am using Standalone version of the software on Windows 11 Pro.

If we mute Master in Audio Mixer and save the project without unmuting and close the Kdenlive… There is noway to unmute Master after reopening the project

I had to open .kdenlive in a different editor and delete the Mute state of the master and save it back, to unmute it. please check the below image…

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Just open any project and click on the mute for Master in Audio mixer.
  2. Save the file and close Kdenlive.
  3. Start Kdenlive and open the .kdenlive file.
  4. In the Audio Mixer it doesn’t show as muted and there is no way to unmute it.
