Much appreciate the effort of these Filter Sets MusicalBox and dimadjdocent. As these potentially increase in number I’ve decided, to keep track of the process of how to correctly add them to a track.
For me (Windows), I now rename them and give them the extension of .xml (that is what the files are anyhow). When they have the extension means that I can then add an XML comment to the file which gives instructions on how to add to the track. Saves me referring back to the forum to see how to do the transition or if I forget.
EDIT: Apologies, when I tried this it didn’t initially work. When I changed the extension to .xml and added the filter set it then added to the transition no problem. I’ve restarted Shotcut and tried to add the filter set to the transition with the comment still in there and the filter won’t add now. I’m not sure why a legitimate xml comment doesn’t work. Sorry for the misguidance.
Putting the comment at the bottom of the .xml file seems to be more reliable.
You dont really need to add the .xml extension.
You can leave the file as it is (with no extension) and simply add your comments right under
the <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> line.
Works for me.
I don’t know if that could be possible, but it would be a nice feature if Shotcut could detect
the <!-- COMMENT --> part of the file.
When hovering the mouse on a filter set, the instructions could be displayed in an info bubble.
