Failed to open file. HELP

What is your operating system?

What is your Shotcut version (see Help > About Shotcut)? Is it 32-bit?

Shotcut version 22.04.25

Can you repeat the problem? If so, what are the steps?
(Please be specific and use the names as seen in Shotcut, preferably English. Include a screenshot or screen recording if you can. Also, you can attach logs from either View > Application Log or right-click a job and choose View Log.)

Hi @Tink_Fortin

Instead of sharing a capture of this blank Shotcut window, it would be more helpful to see Shotcut when it tells you that it failed to open your file(s)

Do you get this?

Or this?

You used % in the name of the folder.
Not sure if there is an easy fix, but that is the problem.

I can duplicate.
Windows 10 Home
Shotcut 22.04.25

I renamed a file folder with % in between letters.
Shotcut will not open any MLT.

I think this has come up before.


no missing file warning

i think you have fixed for me. thanks a lot.
