Hello. I am currently using Shotcut after having used everything on the market. Shotcut was my favorite on windows.
First I want to thank you for the work you have been putting in this FREE OSS program. I am in a bad situation, lost everything and living/eating for less than 50€ per month (in 21th century looking for a job, having an internet connection is a priority over food sadly), I sold everything of value, kept only my cheap laptop and converted my full workflow to open-source and free software. I can still try to work efficiently even if I am broke.
So thank you and to all the OSS devs, from everyone you have ever helped indirectly.
First. I have read the forum and gathered some information. I could understand that realtime filters is a priority (fast processing).Yet I want to digress and propose you add some resource heavy filters that we could use for export. The aim of these filters would be to propose intensive algorithm to shotcut users, even if they cannot be processed close to realtime.
They could be labelled as “EXPORT / Reduce noise : BM3D (not realtime)”. This would allow shotcut to be used as a frameserver, and bring a new crowd to the app.
I am currently looking for a BM3D motion compensated denoiser algorithm, and if you could add it to shotcut it would be perfect.
Second, would be to add “fractional decoding” for wavelet based codecs. Now that I use a low power laptop, everything counts to save processing power, and using Wavelets/cineform proxies has given me the best performances of every codec I ever used. I think wavelets codecs are the future, and this feature would set you on par with paid program like resolve, and push wavelets codecs on the spotlight. But I think this would be very intensive and not feasible by a small team like shotcut.
But I think you should REALLY focus on denoising, if you could create/add something that rivals Neatvideo or Resolve Denoiser you will be on top of everything (and probably become the most used video app). Some people are paying 299€, only for the denoising feature in resolve !
I wish you the best and hope I could help make shotcut better. If not, I was very happy to talk with you. Have the best day.
PS. I want to thank Austin for his vaguedenoiser.zip plugin for shotcut. I started using it over the built in one and I want to say it’s excellent.
