I see everything works fine when hitting play, I see the spectrum
I have an audio file and select it.
Adding ‘Audio Light Visualization’.
When hitting play I don’t see any light coming from the music. Also if I play around with the filter settings It doesn’t seem to work fine. (Once the filter was working fine so I don’t understand why it doesn’t work)
You don’t need to do that. Apart from video and audio clips, filters can also be added to the audio and video track heads to affect an entire track and they can also be added to the Master track head to affect everything in the timeline. You could have the video with the audio in an audio track and add the Audio Light Visualization to the Master track head. This is the Master track head:
When you do that, the Audio Light Visualization filter will pick up the audio and affect the video accordingly.
Furthermore, if you just want the Audio Light Visualization filter to affect only a certain section of the timeline you can go to the Simple Keyframe window for the filter and use the trim handles to specify the section of the video that you want to have affected.
There’s an issue with adding the ALV and ADV filters to the master track.
Put an audio file on an audio track. Add a color clip or image to a video track
Add the ALV filter to the master track. Save the project.
Do a File > New. Re-open the project. The filter does not work
If Shotcut is re started and the project is opened the filter works.
Every time you start a new file and open the saved project the filters do not work.
