Hi @conteudoAnimal.
Here’s a DiagonalBar filter set transition.
Create a 1 second transition between the 2 clips.
Choose transition: Diagonal Top Left, Softness 60%
Apply the filter set.
Select the Color Grading filter to change bar color.

You can also create a bar with Glaxnimate (944 Bytes)
-How to install this effect :
Open Shotcut > Settings > App Data Directory > Show > filter-sets folder
Unzip the archive and drag the selected transition files into this folder. Then, close and restart Shotcut.


You beat me to it @SergeC :rofl:

I just finished doing this. Since we use different methods, I’ll post it anyway, as an alternative.

@ConteudoAnimal, this will work on a 1080p, 30 fps project.
It is a Filter Set to animate a diagonal bar. (642 Bytes)

If your projects have different dimensions and/or frame rate, you will need to edit the size of the diagonal bar, and/or the values of the keyframes.

  • Create a 1-second transition between two clips (let’s say on track V1).
  • Make sure the transition is selected, go to the Properties panel and choose the Bar Horizontal option.
  • Set Softness to 0.
  • On track V2, add a color clip. Any color of your choice. This will be the color of the diagonal bar.
  • Change the duration of that color clip to 01:12 sec.
  • Center it over the transition


  • Select the color clip.
  • Apply my Diagonal-bar-transition Filter Set.



Sorry :smiling_face_with_tear: :frowning_face:. I had this filter set in stock. Your way works good. :+1:
Désolé :smiling_face_with_tear: :frowning_face:. J’avais ce filter set en magasin. Votre méthode est très efficace.
