A Shake Effect would be cool


Hello, I think an effect that shakes the source in X Y and tilt, (example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pebbB475Nas ) would be pretty cool and very useful. Also, parameters (like that in the example) that change the speed, amount and randomness of the shake is also something to think about. That’s all I have to suggest. also, I’ve been using Shotcut for quite awhile and I absolutely love it. keep up the amazing work


How common would it be to want to de-stabilize video?.
Seems ridiculous to me. :smiley:


Agreed. I don’t think such effects are trivial to program though.

There appears to be already a way to add a little bit of shake:

There is a way to use the stabilization data of a shaky video to falsely stabilize another video. Here’s how to do it in Kdenlive:

It’s probably a similar process in Shotcut.


Most people want to De-Stabilize a video to add rage emotion to a clip. Works well with see through red too.


The Stabilize filter asks you to save a .stab file. After making a stab for clip A, adding the Stabilize filter to clip B and click Analyze to create a .stab file for it. Save the .mlt project. Open the .mlt file in a text editor and search for the .stab filename. Simply change the filename to the one used from clip A. Save and reload the project in Shotcut.
Maybe someday we can use this approach to generate random data in .stab file to make it easier.
