Hello, i was wondering if there is any way to make this effect in shotcut
Try playing with lens correction filter
The shot below is the closest I can achieve using the lens correction as suggested above with X & Y set to 0.5 and both corrections set to maximum. Close, but no cigar, I know. It’s also not something you can animate to “bulge” either due to the lack of keyframes on the filter.
You can achieve something like your example in the Synfig animation package and likely some other NLEs but for now, Shotcut hasn’t go the exact facility you’re looking for AFAIK.
