I’ve just started using shotcut for the past 2 weeks or so to work on a research video, and I gotta say that I really appreciate how quickly & stably the program runs on my 4 year old laptop. I don’t really use any of the advanced features that seems to be available in the program, but I’ve been surprised a few times at the lack of what I would think are basic control features. Among these…
- No way to multi-select & edit clips in the timeline
- No way to rearrange video/audio tracks in timeline. This combined with the fact that the new tracks are created on top , and the top-most track is displayed by default can be pretty annoying.
- No way to join clips in the timeline.
- No keyboard shortcuts to place start and end endpoints in the media view… this is annoying because if your playback tracker is at the perfect location for a cut, bringing an endpoint marker close to it will cause the tracker to stick magnetically to the marker and not the other way around.
All in all though, I’m really glad I found this program. Keep up the good work!
