I made this editable text animation that can be imported as a MLT clip in other projects. What’s special about it (for me at least) is that the complete animation fits on a single track, in one clip…
This means that after I export the MLT, I don’t have to apply a blend mode when I import it in another project. It doesn’t matter what color the text and line are, they will stay opaque and the background will be transparent.
Another advantage is that it’s faster to export than if the same animation was made using 2 or 3 tracks.
Merci @Namna Je ne comprenais pas non plus pourquoi ça ne fonctionnait pas en mettant les filtres Mask: Apply et Mask: Simple Shape dans l’ordre habituel. Le masque refusait tout simplement de faire son travail. C’est après plusieurs minutes de manipulations que j’ai découvert que, dans ce cas en particulier, ça ne fonctionne qu’en inversant la position des deux filtres.
I didn’t understand either why the usual position of Mask: Apply and Mask: Simple Shape didn’t work. The mask simply refused to do it’s job. After many manipulations I discovered that, in this particular case, it only works when the positions of the two filters are inverted.
Example: projectxx.mlt .mlt is the extension Shotcut gives to a file when you save (not export) a project.
So when my animation is saved as a project, it can then be imported (opened) in another project, as if it was an ordinary image or video.
See this video tutorial by @bentacular. He talks about this Shotcut feature.
A severe reprimand? That sounds a bit dickish, because in the scheme of things it’s a relatively minor mistake. Whether you call it “MLT,” “MTL” or in my instance “.mit” as long as we can determine what it is we’re actually talking about it doesn’t particularly matter.
