I am using Shotcut 22.01.30 to export a video made out of other videos and images. When I run the export through Shotcut, everything works as it should. When the export runs, I understand that Shotcut creates a temporary XML mlt file and calls melt to process that. I made a copy of the temporary mlt file and noted the command line arguments Shotcut passes to melt.
When I try run the exact same command through a DOS prompt with the same mlt file I get different results. For one thing, the images specified in the XML file do not show up in the video but I only see blank time instead.
Does anybody have any idea what is the cause of this?
