I want to add short subtitles (3 – 5 s duration) at various time positions over the base clip(s), so they get baked in when rendered. Haven’t tried it yet, but I can probably manage that with a transparent PNG carrying a text filter on track 2, copying that to another position, changing the text, &c.
But I saw that Shotcut has a File > Open Other > Color option which would be more elegant. Yet when I do that nothing much happens, while I was expecting a (kinda virtual) uniform color clip to appear in the playlist or on the (selected) second track.
Am I doing something wrong, or does said option work differently than what I expected?
Thanks for your help,
