I was very happy with Shotcut. was.
Then today I opened a folder on my desktop (I’ve got windows 10) and I realised that my operating system doesn’t recognise the .mlt extension opens with Shotcut. So, I double clicked on my .mlt project file, then windows asked me to pick an app to open it with, and I chose Shotcut. And then, everything happened as it should…Shotcut opened…my project loaded.
But after this, my editor playback window suddenly becomes really laggy, I mean like 1 frame every 10 seconds. It was fine yesterday, my project even had more layers yesterday.
It’s tricky to find fixes for a generic problem like this, even on your own forum. I was hoping to get my project done by now,.
I went on youTube and saw a video on Shotcut stability.
It suggested changing the ‘Display Method’, to another option. Now I don’t know if my machine has a gfx card or not, but hey, I thought Id try changing the display method and if it doesn’t work, I could always change it back, right? WRONG!! straight away, Shotcut closed with an error box appearing with gabelde gouk in it, something about the settings being wrong.
Now when I try to load Shotcut I get the same error box popping up and Shotcut doesn’t even bother to load.
So I reinstalled Shotcut….
same error box…
so I remember my friend doing a trick with the registry (yeh he talks like it’s supposed to be common knowledge), I found a key(?) sure, named shotcut but the entry is blank.
I don’t know what to do.
I’ve really enjoyed learning new video editing stuff with Shotcut so far, till today.
