Clubhouse promotions using Shotcut


#1

Hello all,

I want to start putting a few promotions up onto an existing large SmartTV we have up on the wall in our clubhouse.

I have access to videos and stills, and was wondering if Shotcut is the kind of platform where I can create something where the videos are playing continuously on 2/3rds of the screen, whilst I set up a slideshow kind of feature on the remaining 1/3rd showing latest offers, news and features of the club.

Thanks in advance.

Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,
Probably this tutorial could help you to get the expected results:

Wow. Thank you both. And this is all free? It looks incredible.

Yes, all for free :slight_smile:
Incredible: Yes, it is!!

Shotcut does not play something continuously indefinitely. However, you can make what you want to show, export it as a video file, and then play the exported result in a media player that can loop indefinitely.

@JonathanR Shotcut is a fantastic editor, however if you need more scheduling and things of that nature and have a spare PC I’ve had excellent results mixing videos from shotcut with Risevision(https://www.risevision.com) at the free tier as a signage platform(I’ve found smart tv’s lacking for a lot of things…)

Once again thanks for the answers on this. I have been having a watch of some of the tutorials and I am going to have a go this weekend at setting something up.

You also might want to look at VLC Media Player https://www.videolan.org/index.html
You can create play lists with VLC if you’re looking something that’s free.
