I have recorded video mp4 in FULL HD. If I render it with the same resolution 1080p - looks great.

However, I have a requirement to convert my videos to 720p. If I select to render to 720p in Kdenlive in advanced options, my text gets blurry.

I have went through so much googling and did not find the answer how to keep about the same visual quality when rendering from 1080p to 720p.

 ffmpeg -i lunch_worker-2019-05-12_19.52.19.mkv -vf scale=-1:720 -c:v libx264 -crf 45 -preset veryslow -c:a copy MyMovie_720p.mkv

Please advise.

    -crf 45 is a low quality level. Try half that value. – llogan May 16 at 16:42
