I don’t understand. The vid is not made so how would I share it? Maybe I was not clear. I’m making a video out of still photos with music. I want to put the lyrics on the phtoos in the video. The tutorials I see skip steps…are just not clear and most are with older versions. I’m using v22.
There are many different ways to add text or captions to your video. I can’t guess what happened in the video you watched. If you share the video you watched, we can work through it to adapt it to what you want to do in your video. This is what I meant.
The best way to use text is to create a Video track and have it be the top most track. Create a transparent color clip. Open Other → Color. Drag that clip to your timeline on the top most track you just created. Apply Text: Simple or Text:Rich filter to that transparent color clip.
Ah, I see. Yes, the video tutorial I watched. Duh, I should have known. Sorry.
Based on the screen recording you just made me, I think I understand.
Let me see if I can follow these steps. What’s a mystery right now is how to drag the text down into the video track. But experience is what I need. Thanks very much
Another way is to create a subrip file, a very simple text file containing the subtitles and the time they appear on the video, and use a utility I created to add these to your Shotcut project. See below for more information and a tutorial on how to do this:
