I just started using Shotcut. It is a great program. Thanks!
I have been trying to select multiple clips and apply different things to them. However, it seems that Shotcut is not capable of doing this at the moment.
I am aware of the “Track” filters, but that will not work.
For example, I would like to add a filter to multiple photos. I added the filter to the first photo. Then I copied it. Then I selected the remaining photos in the timeline. Then I tried to paste the filter. It only pasted to the first selected photo. This means I have to paste to each photo individually. That is a lot of clicking and it is not very efficient.
Is this possible in Shotcut?
If not, is it something that can be added?
Also, adding or copy/pasting transitions to multiple clips this way would also be a great feature.
it does work! I had the same idea and suggestion
You have to apply the filter to the track head (V1, V2,…) and make sure the whole track is selected, by clicking in the free area of the track head (not the text V1, otherwise SC thinks you want to edit the text).
This way all filters of the track are applied to everything on that track, may it be images or video clips.
Keyframes are relative to the beginning of the filter, but the track filter is not repeated for each clip in a track even though it may appear that way to you. It is one filter whose duration may be greater than the filter’s first clip. The filter duration is subject to its own in and out points, which by default are pinned to the start and end of the object to which it is added.
Got it. I just confirmed this with a test. So if one needs to repeat what a keyframe is doing on multiple elements on the track, it ends up being one long keyframe across the span of the track. You would need to set the keyframe at a starting position, then ending position that matches the first element. Then set it to starting position again, and so on and so forth
