How to prevent video from shrinking when split from playhead?

What is your operating system?
Windows 11
What is your Shotcut version (see Help > About Shotcut)?
Shotcut version 24.04.28

Can you repeat the problem? If so, what are the steps?
the video plays normal until i split at playhead, where the video shrinks except at the second half of the project. Anyway i can undo this and prevent it rom happening again?

Hi @H3adTak3r

Apparently, you made the Split in the middle of a keyframe animation. That’s what is causing this shrinking behavior.

To prevent this in the future:

  • Move the Playhead at the position you want to make the Split.
  • Add a keyframe at that position.
  • Move the Playhead 1 frame forward.
  • Split.

Also is it normal for the zoom to go to 0.1%? this happened after closing and reopening shotcut

Si je peux me permettre … :sunglasses:

En faisant ceci, vous coupez le clip une image trop tard.
Je ferais plutĂ´t ceci.

  • DĂ©placez la tĂŞte Ă  la position ou vous souhaitez couper le clip
  • Reculez d’une image
  • Ajoutez une image-clĂ©
  • Avancez d’une image
  • Coupez

If I may… :sunglasses:

By doing this, you cut the clip one frame too late.
I would rather do this.

  • Move the Playhead at the position you want to make the Split.
  • Go back 1 frame frame.
  • Add a keyframe at that position.
  • Move the Playhead 1 frame forward.
  • Split.

Vous avez raison @Namna.
Un frame ne fait pas une grosse différence en général, mais si la position de la coupe est cruciale, il vaut mieux procéder de votre façon.

You’re right @Namna.
One frame doesn’t usually make a big difference, but if the position of the split is critical, it’s best to do it your way.

No, that doesn’t look normal. I reproduced it.
After re-launching the project, Shotcut adds a ghost keyframe at the very end of the left side clip.

Since it may affect the animation, you can remove that keyframe @H3adTak3r.
