I joined the forum here because I wanted to report a constant crash that I have been experiencing regarding the circular drag handles
that appear when either using the fade in and fade out filter or for simple keyframes. I read on the forums that a new update is coming on the first of August so I hope the developers can read this and get to fix it before then. If not, I hope that the update can be delayed for a day or so that this can be taken care of. I do enjoy using Shotcut but this bug is really getting annoying.
I was getting crashes very easily while trying out the simple keyframes by just sliding the drag handles back and forth and thought
that maybe it had something to do with the simple keyframes feature itself but then I experienced crashes using the drag handles for the fade in and fade out filters. I’ve done some tests with the advanced keyframes and so far haven’t experienced crashes like these so it seems that the issues has to do with the drag handles themselves regardless if they are being used for fades or simple keyframes.
The crashes are caused by simply moving the drag handles at length back and forth and sometimes just moving it forward will be enough. They are so buggy that they are very delicate. I have had crashes by doing this with file types of all kinds and sizes so it wasn’t limited to one kind of media.
I made a video that shows the different kinds of crashes that I get by using the drag handles using two different types of media. One video and one picture. I did different demonstrations such as doing both the fade in and fade out filters, simple keyframes and also simple keyframes with settings applied. I wanted to be as thorough as I can so that’s why there are several attempts shown in the demo with both pieces of media.
I am not sure if the drag handles are intended to be moved very slowly but I don’t think speed should matter. As you can see in the demo, it crashes way too easily by just moving them around and doing nothing else.
Like I said, I get this no matter the media but just as a point of reference, the video and picture that I used for the demo here are:
