I don’t particularly have problems with the UI at the moment, but when I was just starting to use shotcut back at v16.9, I couldn’t figure out how to add things like text where there wasn’t any other video playing.
I now know that this isn’t possible and I am forced to use a cheap workaround by having a black image which I add text to.
Making filters such as text and audio visualisation into objects that aren’t attached to any other file would as well as making the use of these filters easier, also add the capability to add filters to them (for example adding a fade-in to an audio visualisation. (This currently doesn’t work and I need to do cheap workarounds))
In my opinion, this design just makes more sense than the current design.
I’ll quickly photoshop a concept
Edit: the reason that I put this as a feature suggestion rather than a bug is that it isn’t an issue, it is just an area in which improvements can be made
