I’m in the middle of a ShotCut project. I want the small video seen moving from the lower area to the top-left to slide over the main video, not under it. I can’t figure out why it’s doing the move underneath the other one instead. I’m using keyframes with the Move and Resize and Crop Rectangle filters.
When asking questions like this it is always best to include a screenshot of the whole Shotcut window. That way we can see what the track setup on your timeline looks like, rather than having to ask questions about what your track setup is.
OK, now the problem is quite easy to find & solve: There is missing one keyframe at the beginning of the crop filter. You have to move this filter simultaneously to the resize filter, otherwise the juming jack slides into the crop box and that looks like it would be sliding underneath the main video.
The other option is to apply the crop filter first and then resizing and moviing the cropped jumping jack.
Cropping AND resizing is always a bit fiddly.
