How to have different fonts in text filter?

I feel like the basic text filter is bland… and I kinda want my videos to have colorful poped text, I already know how to color it but is there any way to add more detail or no…?

Photoshop > PNG with alpha transparency > Add to new video track > Enable composite

Wait so I would use the fonts from Photoshop, not from the video recorder…

You mean video editor?
The point is, Shotcut has limited font effects, you want more then use a raster editor such as Photoshop to create your effects then import the PNG image into Shotcut.


Kinda fixed it using bold effects, also personally I think it would be a pain to export the text in from Photoshop, but thanks.

Suit yourself, but it’s very common practice and normal workflow to prepare assets for use in Video editors.

You can get creative with text by layering (using multiple video tracks). This video shows what I mean:
