Recently I’ve got to really, really like Shotcut - it’s so easy to use - when you’ve learnt how!
I’ve been trying to use the WebVfx.js movie credits type thing in Shotcut version 21, and the Overlay HTML Overlay filter is no longer available in my latest version of Shotcut.
I’ve read online that HTML Overlay doesn’t work with the new version, but that it does work with Shotcut v20 and have got it working there, but is it possible to get it to work in Shotcut v21?
I’m afraid not - see here for other options:
There are several “use cases” for WebVfx in Shotcut. Some of which can be replaced using keyframes instead e.g. simple scrolling credits, both vertical and horizontal. Other effects cannot easily be replaced by keyframes, such as complex text animation, image (de)fragmentation, explosion/implosion and filters that manipulate the video frames, like “persistence”, “sniperscope” and other WebGL operations such as transitions and so on.
For me there are two main options to work around the fact that…
There is a scroll option on both the Text: Simple and Text: Rich filters, the latter can accept a subset of CSS to style the text.
Thanks for this information. Elusien.
I’ve done quite a bit with Text: Simple, but I cannot find the “scroll option” on it in v21. Am I being stupid?
I will certainly have a look at OBS - when I’ve. time. I presume that you use both OBS and Shotcut (SC)?
Also, can you direct me to a good tutorial on “keyframes”? I don’t understand these at all.
Your website certainly contains other things I could look into!
Yes, I record the HTML animation in OBS and use the clip in Shotcut. There is a good OBS tutorial here:
Text: Simple and Text: Rich can be scrolled by clicking on
Preset when in the filter then choosing what type of scroll or slide you want.
@bentacular has a good tutorial here:
My most requested tutorial is done! How to use keyframes in Shotcut. Enjoy!
There is also a very good tutorial on many features here:
Here is a “Shotcut Tutorial 2021” I just published on YouTube yesterday, 01-18-21, using the current version of the software, and covering a full tutorial (video editing, transitions, text, shapes & colors, effects, green screen, keyframes…). A user (BungurTube) kindly commented “Great tutorial - you must share it to shotcut forum”. Thanks! So here goes…my first post, let see if pasting the video web address works…
Thanks for the shout-out!
@Elusien - Thanks brother!
thanks for your advice. I haven’t yet looked at the OBS, or the Shotcut Tutorial 2021, but have looked at Bentacular’s vid.
It explained “keyframes” brilliantly! I understand these now. Just one improvement I’d suggest is that on ShotCut v21 “Rotate and Scale” is now called “Size, Position and Rotate”.
I also looked at some of Bentacular’s other vids and the Star Wars crawl one helped me to do my end-credits scroll using Key Frames - so thanks to Bentacular - again!
