A few minutes left, and the project is finished! Click the Render button (or go to ProjectRender, or press Ctrl+Enter) to get the dialog shown on the left. Select the desired output file for our new video with all effects and transitions, choose MPEG4 (works nearly everywhere) and a bitrate of 2000k (the higher the bitrate, the larger the output file and the better the quality – but since the bitrate for the input clips was 2000k already, using a higher one would not improve quality and is therefore unnecessary), and press the Render to File button.

After some seconds rendering will be finished, and your first Kdenlive project completed. Congratulations!
