I do know what happened to the image of your screenshot, but I saw it last night on my phone. It says it could not find the required cairoblend frei0r plugin. That is bundled in all of the official builds through our download page, but it failed to load on your system for some odd reason.
Here you can see that it is working for me in a clean new virtual machine running Windows 7:
You should verify that the file Shotcut\lib\frei0r-1\cairoblend.dll exists. If it exists, there must be some other missing DLL or a system conflict. I suggest to:
uninstall/remove Shotcut before attempting to run it
try running again
If that does not work, it is possible an environment variable or a DLL installed in your %PATH% environment variable such as C:\Windows\System32 is causing a problem, but that can be difficult to diagnose.
You can also install the previous version to see if it works.
Thx you very much for your answer mate
I 'll check if the `cairoblend.dll is there (i’m not sure of that but where can it be found ?)
I already tried to reinstalle the last version and the previous one but it ain’t change a thing
I seem to be having the same problem. I tied to download the programme yesterday on a Windows 10 64 laptop and got this message. I am not sure how to load the plug in as the programme won’t ope up at all.
Error: Shotcut could not find the cairoblend frei0r plugin on your system.
Thank you for sharing your update and resolution.
Quite likely the upgrade was not able to update all the files perhaps because some of them were locked. This will definitely happen if you have Shotcut running. Don’t do that! But also there are times when Shotcut failed to exit completely and there is still a zombie process running in the background. For that you go to Task Manager > Details, sort by name, look for shotcut.exe, and kill all of them. Or, a reboot takes care of that.
As for my “fix” I could not determine the root cause. Rather, I made some changes to try to avoid it. Maybe it was checking too soon for that plugin in the startup sequence. I changed it to when a video track is added because that is exactly where it is needed. So, even if you could not use Timeline, at the very least you can still use Source, Playlist, Filters, Keyframes, and Export. But also I added a fallback plugin for track compositing that does not support a blending mode selection (alpha over only).
