I’m new to Shotcut and video editing in general, but I’m really enjoying learning and I’m very grateful for this amazing tool and community all being totally free!
I was wondering if anyone knows how I could add a “progress bar” on the bottom of a video. This can be seen often in Instagram videos such as this one:
It’s just useful for keeping the audience engaged as they know how much longer the video lasts. I had an idea of making a solid color bar and placing it at the bottom of the video, then adding a filter to make the image gradually appear from left to right over the duration of the video, but I couldn’t work out if this was possible.
Hopefully we can solve this and help some people with the same issue as me
