Are There Any "Easy-To-Understand" Tutorials For Shotcut?

Welp, the title pretty much states it: I’m wondering if there are any beginner tutorials out there for ShotCut but in a rather “condensed/easy-to-understand” form? (I know, there have probably been a few people like myself whom have probably asked a similarly voiced question before, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask anyway.) :man_shrugging:

BTW, for anyone wondering, for my particular use case, it’s not even something very advanced or demanding: I wish to use it for a music compilation video I’m working on, so nothing too fancy. And in case anyone didn’t see or notice my last post, I’ll give you the TLDR: Quite frankly, I’m a beginner editor that only knows some basics, but that’s it. I am able to learn from video tutorials out there, but I feel like some of the ones I’ve already watched are a little too advanced for me if you know what I mean…

With that being said, I would VERY MUCH appreciate it if anyone can help put things into a more simpler context for me so I can get started on my project & hopefully I won’t have any issues along the way. :slight_smile: Don’t forget to ask me any questions you might have & I will do my very best to answer right back! :+1: Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

I recommend our official training course (as mentioned on a few of our Website pages) here

I just checked out the link you provided, & appreciate it, but there is 1 small problem: For these courses, you do of course have to pay a certain amount in order to be educated on how to use it. Only problem is I can’t afford it due to my unemployment. :confused: Are there any free resources I can utilize in regards to my original question? :thinking:

The obvious choice is Help > Tutorials… in the Shotcut main menu, which leads to Shotcut - Tutorial Videos also listed at the top of every page in this forum.

@shotcut I’m aware of that. -_- I just want to know if any of your tutorials applies to what I want to do & if they’re in an easy-to-understand form? If not, then you could just SAY SO; there’s no shame in admitting it. :man_shrugging:

I have checked out some of your videos in case there was something I didn’t know when it comes to editing/using ShotCut. 1 thing I am curious about [And not sure if you touched on this in any of your tutorials. They are great by the way & pretty easy to understannd! :+1:] is how easy is it to add like some images or art to a video project? :thinking: With my project I have in mind, I’ll be adding the songs/tracks & then these art-pieces/wallpapers that I found. I assume it should be pretty easy to assign certain images to certain parts of the video? Man, I feel like I should have taken up video editing a LONG time ago, but better late than never given that this will be my 1st time…

And goodluck with your editing, its never too late to start!

As others pointed out, there is a lot of good material out there. I found this tutorial by Kevin Stratvert very helpful to get the big picture and get started:
