I’ve been working on a video edit using multiple clips, and I am almost finished. The .mlt file would open normally, but after leaving it for a few hours, the program just says the project fails to open.
I’ve been told to edit it using Notepad++ but I’m completely clueless on how. Can anyone please help me??
Think about the versions you may have used and read this about the latest version 18.08.14:
If you do not understand, attach your .mlt file here and I will take a look.
I haven’t downloaded the recent update, saying that it might corrupt the file. I have also looked at the .mlt file using Notepad++ and haven’t found anything out of place.
I’ve also done some research, and found that moving the file or changing it stops it from working (neither which I have done).
I will upload the file. Thanks again for the help, I appreciate it.

You need to get the latest version of Shotcut. There was a bug that was fixed with the 18.08.14 release. You can read about it here .
There was some bad data on line 1854 of your mlt. Try the fixed file to see if it works.

The file now works! I will finish the project and then download the newest update. Thanks a million guys!!
When you’re finished with the project upload the video, if you don’t mind. I’d like to see it. From the contents of the mlt it seems interesting.
Sure! It’s a music video advertising a friend’s band, using a load of clips from futuristic/robot films. I only started with shotcut recently, so it’s not that good.
