I was working on a project for school when shotcut crashed. Well, nothing to worry about. I went back to my save file and loaded it: project is empty/timeline not appearing. Weird. I check my autosave folder, and I find it completely empty. I lost 2 hours of work, is there any known way to get my file back from here? I’m screwed, right? What happened? Has this happened to anyone else?
Some more details: I think I saved while it crashed, or the save was what crashed it, either way, the project appears empty.
The autosaved file gets deleted when you save the project. It looks as if the crash during/after save screwed up the save, so I suspect that unfortunately there is no way you can recover your lost work. See Shotcut’s reply to this thread:
