Okay so I feel kinda stupid asking this but my default background colour for videos is black and I’d like to change it to white. I often work with cropped videos so you see the background a lot. Unfortunately couldn’t find any help on this topic elsewhere…
Cropped videos have no background unless you are using the cropped version as an overlay to a larger resolution video.
Perhaps what you want is to create a coloured background first using File>Open Other>Color then use your cropped video as an overlay.
thanks for answering. i do use overlays hence why i want the black background gone. how do i put my videos over the white colour? can i move the video track to the bottom somehow so that it acts as a background to all the clips?
Steve_Ledger, I used your tip to change background color to chroma key green. Then “exported” the resized image to MP4. I opened a new project. Opened the MP4 (with green cropped area) and a new background and executed the chroma Key filter. It worked, but may not be the most efficient way to accomplish resizing of green screen image over new studio background. Can this be done in a single pass in Shotcut? I think it would require three video tracks. Your thoughts? Thanks.
