Hello hello. I’ve been using ShotCut for my video editing, but I’m hitting some limitations in my workflow, and I’m not sure if that’s because I’m missing things (I’m pretty new to video editing) or if there’s features ShotCut is missing.
I have tried searching for these and found some discussion, but nothing that solves my issues. So maybe y’all can help me?
Issue 1 is locking/linking one clip to another. Essential I have a video track and an audio track. When a video clip looks at say an anthill, the audio clip should say “ooh anthill”. Even if I’m moving other clips around, cutting bits, adding transitions, etc. I always want that anthill point to stay sync’d. Is that possible?
Issue 2 is about transitions. On my timeline I might have 50+ “clips”. Each of those needs to transition to the next. Currently this means click-drag every individual clip (and try to get them to move about the same each time). I’m assuming I’m missing something here and there’s maybe a shortcut to do this?
Issue 3 is also about transitions, but more about customizing them. Is there a way to create your own transition, or add a specific sound to your transitions? Or even change what the default transition is (maybe for x video I want fades, but y video needs more cross-swipes for example)?
I’m finding other things, but those are my big sticking spots right now. Any help at all is greatly appreciated! Many thanks!
