New shotcut user here and new to video editing in general, so please bear with me.
As a starting point, I am looking to use shotcut to edit my table tennis league matches. In table tennis there’s generally a lot of “downtime” between points so a match becomes considerably shorter if you edit those out. I’ve quickly got the hang of this basic process of triming thanks to the lovely tutorials available. What I do is I drop the full match onto the timeline and then start trimming into clips by using the “split at playhead” and “ripple trim in/out” keyboard shortcuts.
Now onto my question. I’m looking to add the same basic fade in filter to all the clips, using the quickest way possible. I realise there’s a slideshow feature in the playlist that can almost do what I want (it uses transitions instead), but I couldn’t find a way to quickly move all the clips from the timeline to the playlist. One thought I had was to export all the clips from the timeline individually and then add them to the playlist, but that doesn’t look like it can be achieved quickly/ in batch either.
Apparently this is a pretty simple and quick process in a program like adobe premier using this method, so hopefully there’s a quick way to do this in shotcut as well.
Any suggestions? What would you do to achieve this as quickly as possible?
