Shotcut is an open-source, cross-platform, non-linear video editor written in Qt. For smaller jobs, it might be a good enough alternative to commercial applications like Corel VideoStudio Pro.
After adding a new video track and inserting the picture, play with the
Rotate and Scale filter.
You can't. Speed is set through a clip's Properties, meaning you must either apply this to the original video in the timeline and before editing, or do this for each and every clip in the timeline.
In the timeline, drag and drop the last segment over the previous segment.
As of release 18.01.02, Shotcut requires using a third-party picture editor to create the background as a bitmap, and import it trough the Playlist into the Timeline between the two clips.
To add text, select this new item in the Timeline, click on the Filters button, select the Text feature, and change the text + location.
Add audio track, add audio file
Click on the + sign in the Export window on the left hand-side > Add Export Preset.
Must click again on Source tab.
"When it comes to Export settings, the biggest factors are: Deinterlacer (if used), Interpolation, Parallel processing, and Video Codec." (source)
Try this (Export > H.264 High Profile > Other):
Right-clicking displays no Export option, only Goto, Insert Cut, Open as Clip, Remove.
Select the item in the Playlist, click on Export, and set the From field to "Playlist".
After opening the Export section, it's set through the From field: Timeline, Playlist, Each Playlist Item, Theme.
There's no way to cancel a selection: At best, you can drag the In and Out points to the very beginning and end of the clip in the Player.
Next/Previous Frame: Right/Left arrow
Shotcut seems unable to move frame by frame: The smallest increment is by 1/100th of a second.
Use the industry standard shortcuts: J, K, L
To move one bit left or right, hold down K, and use either J or L. You can also use the left and right arrow keys.
To move by one second, use the Page Up/Down keys, which can be complemented with either Shift (two seconds), Ctrl (5 seconds), or Shift+Ctrl (10 seconds).
Seek Next/Previous Edit: Alt+Left/Right
Those shortcurts are used to move the playhead to the previous or next cut point in the timeline.
Besides the mouse, you can use the I (input, ie. start) and O (output, ie. end) keyboard keys.
You can then add the sub-clip ("cut") into the Playlist ("bin") by clicking on the Playlist icon, and clicking on the green + sign. When you're done, clicking on Export will re-encode the list of clips in the Playlist into a single file, ie. there's no need to paste them into a timeline at the bottom of the application if you don't need extras like transitions or additional tracks.
Settings > Uncheck "Scrub Audio"
Click on the Source or the Project tab. Esc is the keyboard shortcut.
Theme > System
Shotcut doesn't do support this. Use AviDemux.
As of 18.01.02, it's not possible.
As of 18.01.02, it's not possible.
The Mask filter was introduced in release 18.03.06.
In addition to the Blur filter, there is the Mosaic filter.
It's a good idea to the project every time you make a significant change.
What is keyframing?
No way to split multiple tracks in one go ? Must use S to split each track separately?
BES Battle Encoder Shirase
CTRL+A doesn't work, neither does selecting first/end + SHIFT. Must click "-" repeatedly.
J works for rewind, but L only plays the video in the player, ie. L = space
File : List most recent files
Export window: "Clear all" instead of having to remove each and every job individually.
Speed up whole video track in timeline.
