First, I quite like this program. I’m just getting into video editing but Shotcut is wonderfully straightforward with no convoluted learning curve. I’m still getting the basics down but I’m glad this program exists.
That said, I can’t do any voice overs with it. I follow the steps… I have my project open, I go to Open Other > Audio/Video Device > Audio Input… I select my mic, which Shotcut sees, but all I get is the error "Failed to open dshow:audio=Microphone.
My version of Shotcut is up to date, my pc runs Windows 10 and the mic works on other devices, it works on the pc when I test it over the speakers but it just won’t open for Shotcut.
I’m thinking that it’s because the desktop is actually fairly old and it’s actually time for a new one. Maybe my mic, Shotcut and the RealTek audio just don’t get along but if there’s a way to fix this that’d be great because right now I’m recording voice overs on my cell phone and then transferring the file to my pc.
