I was edeting a video but than suddenly i couldn’t click on anything, every button didn’t work, not on my keybourd but on the screen, this hapaned . I couldn’t even quit Shotcut. So i restarted my pc. Than i tried to click on the project where i was working on under ‘‘recent projects’’ but when i clicked on it everythinmg was gone…
So my question is: can i get my video back, if yes than how can i get it back.
please awnser because i spent alot of time in my video.
Possible. You can look in the autosave folder. It doesn’t sound like Shotcut crashed though, so there may not be an autosave file there. But it’s where a look.
Since you didn’t state which Operating system you are using, refer to the FAQ to locate where to find the autosave folder location.
If there is no autosave file, then you’ll have to just go back to your last save.
Thanks for reacting.
Where can i find the autosave folder? Im pretty new wich shotcut so thats why i ask.
My apologies… I completely messed up my original reply, which I just corrected.
Look in the FAQ link above to find the location.
The location is different based upon which operating system you use.
Example… this is how it looks like in Windows 10.
In Windows version of Shotcut, I can also get there by doing this.
thank you, even though i just saw an older question and got my video back.
I was just working on a project and Shotcut locked up and crashed. The MLT file, which I had been routinely saving, just disappeared. I have been opening it up from the same location and it had been open in the application for days (working on it in between other work tasks). I opened the window, and started editing and noticed a video fade-in/fade-out on a transparent text-only video layer (use for captioning videos) was not working in the preview. Having experienced issues that fix themselves …
Thank you for your help
