Chain text without splitting video

It will be nice if there was a option to add text in different frames of a video without splitting the video multiple times.
Other than that lots of love for shotcut.

You can already by going to Open Other and choosing Text. That opens a transparent clip with the Text: Simple filter already applied which then you use on an upper video track.

Watch this tutorial to see how to do text in Shotcut:

thanks :slight_smile:
also
is there a way to add word by word without splitting too much

Experiment with either the Mask: Simple Shape or the Crop: Rectangle filters in a transparent clip with Text: Simple. You’ll have to keyframe them using the Discrete keyframe type.

Is this what you’re wanting to do?

No splitting, just multiple text filters.
As you put in each word per text filter, click on Keyframes and slide in/out the handles.
