Filter Sets

Filter sets first appeared in version 23.05.14.

A Filter Set is a collection of filters. A few examples are included:

  • Glow Intensity
  • Obscure With Blur
  • Obscure With Mosaic
  • Text Simple with Gradient Back

You can create your own from all enabled (checked) filters by clicking the Save a filter set button in the Filters panel.

This opens a window to let you give it a name. If you do not give it a name, the filters are copied to the clipboard.

To use a filter set, after clicking + to add a filter you can either search or click the Sets category to browse them.

To remove a filter set that you created (stock ones cannot be removed), go the Sets list and right-click the custom filter set you want to remove.

How to install a Filter Set

In the Forum Resource section, you will find many Filter Sets created and shared by members of the forum.

They are usually contained in a ZIP file and, once unzipped, they need to be moved to a specific folder on your computer.


  • Download the ZIP file containing the filter set and un-zip it.
  • In Shotcut, go to Settings > App Data Directory > Show to open the filter-set directory.
  • In that directory you should see a filter-sets folder. If it is not there, you will have to create one (use that exact name: filter-sets).
  • Open the filter-sets folder.
  • Move the unzipped Filter Set file in that folder.
  • Close and re-launch Shotcut.

To find your new filter set in Shotcut, go to Filters panel > Sets
