I just tried out the possibilities of creating a video out of many pictures. For that you have to add the first picture in to the playplist, open the properties and then select the “Image sequence” checkbox.
This works perfect, even if you have houndreds of pictures. But on my computer (Windows 10 1803 with Shotcut 19.01.24, Shotcut in English, Windows in German) it doesn’t work when there’s a special character in the path. If this is the case, Shotcut will not create a clip out of the image sequence and will crash after the next action (click) after you enabled the “Image sequence” checkbox.
The following path leads to this crash (notice the “ü” in Kappelbrücke):
I:\DFS\Filme\Archive\Hotel Balances 26.01.2019\Timelaps\Kappelbrücke Freitag 1445
With this path it worked:
I:\DFS\Filme\Archive\Hotel Balances 26.01.2019\Timelaps\Kappelbruecke Freitag 1445
Thanks to Dan and all others for creating such a great and free software and I hope this can be fixed in a further release.
