I am fairly new to Shotcut and have been using it to edit a 6 minute extensive video for work. It has been going well and I was in the final stages today. I always save it within Shotcut as I work. When I would close Shotcut, and then open it to work on it later, it always appeared in “recent projects” as the mlt file, I would select it, open it and continue to work. No problem.
I worked on it most of today, closed but did not power off my laptop. I just opened it to continue working. Opened Shotcut and for the first time NOTHING appears in “recent projects”. No mlt file.
I can’t find it anywhere. I tried restarting shotcut, restarting my computer etc. Nothing.
I tried to search for an mlt file in the start menu and one shows up but I can’t open it. I also believe it may be an older version…I’m not sure. Do I try to move that mlt file into shotcut somehow?
Please I’m desperate. It has been months of work.
