Hi, new user here, after experimenting for months with Lightworks but getting very frustrated when I couldn’t save my work!!(and also having lots of unexpected things happen whilst editing)… then recently I found VSDC, but tore my hair out when I tried just to put in a simple dissolve transition - !! So I discovered Shotcut - Great! Just what I was looking for, really enjoyed trying it out, I need to be able to do complex things but it seems so easy to implement everything.
BUT: I’d like to merge 2 video clips together. Clip one will be a tranquil seaside shot, and I’d like to have a few seconds of war action overlayed with it (OK I know, sounds a crazy idea but it’s for a video to go along with some music I composed…).
I added a second video track which appears above V1. V1 is set to composite, V2 is not. The 2 clips have been placed at the same starting point on the timeline. However, when I hit play all I see is the V2 video. Can I merge them together so I see both playing, and can I alter the mix of the two to make one stand out more (or less). Grateful for any help. So far it’s an amazing program, keep up the good work!
