Thank you for the suggestions. We appreciate the thought you’ve put into this. I’ll try to go down through most of the list and hopefully give you more info.
(roadmap) Reverse clips, maybe by negative speed
Not sure when this will be released, but a few tricks/workarounds have been posted here.
Make text move across the clip
Generally, I think the important part here is just clips moving on the screen. Highly requested feature, and first priority on the road map. Related forum topics are here (see keyframe events), and here. Although I’m sure you know how important this feature is, but it will take time to implement.
Add text as a seperate clip like Title in Premiere or at least make text go in front of everything (but keep the one we have now)
Actually already possible in Shotcut but slightly confusing. Read how here.
Blur faces and objects
Another interesting feature I’d never heard requested before. A blur filter exists already but that’s for the whole clip, not selected parts of it. Probably won’t be released soon though, because the of the “selecting” aspect of it. That would require a whole new complicated process in and of itself.
