I am new to Shotcut and very excited to be here. I have already played around with the software and figured out quite a bit.
There is one problem though that I need assistance with and can’t find an answer here on the forum.
My harddrive failed a while ago ( don’t ask about the backup !! ) and I managed to rescue the largest part of photos and videos. However, a number of videos were saved as stills, lots and lots of stills. I would like to use Shotcut to recreate these videos ( without audio ), but am having trouble with the correct fps and adjusting it so that it plays smoothly. I know that I have to load the first still to the playlist, adjust the duration and save it. After that import the rest of stills and they will have the same “new” duration. I still can’t seem to find the right setting. For instance, I set the fps in Settings to 24fps and the duration to 1sec 23 fps, but still no luck. Tried the same with higher fps, still no luck. I read on here that the duration 00:00:00:00 is in fact hour:minutes:seconds:fps. Is this correct?
Has anyone here recreated videos from stills that originally came from a video?
Then, you do not want to import each image separately. Open the first one, go to Properties, and click the Image Sequence check box assuming your files are named with a number sequence. If not, then use your file manager to bulk rename them, and it should add a number.
If you are not interested in an image sequence then see
