"Mirror" animated text title effect - utilising filter sets

Create this mirror text effect at breakneck speed! In fact, in half the time it takes James Galway to play The Flight of the Bumblebee!

Zipped filter set files:
JR-mirror text Filter Sets.zip (1.5 KB)

This uses the “filter sets” feature - you need Shotcut version 23.05.14 (and up) to use filters sets.

Method -
Unzip and install the two filter set files into the Shotcut AppData folder*

On the timeline - add two transparent tracks - 6 seconds or more.
Apply JR-mirror-text-TOP-V3 filter set to top track,
Apply JR-mirror-text-BOTTOM-V2 filter set to bottom track.

*If you don’t know how to do this, @musicalbox gives clear instructions in this post:


A classic! Well done @jonray, it looks pretty darn good :+1:

By the way, I can play The Flight of the Bumblebee much faster than that on my kazoo :rofl:
