Redoing won't restore the filter

What is your operating system?

Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS
What is your Shotcut version (see Help > About Shotcut)? Is it 32-bit?

Can you repeat the problem? If so, what are the steps?
Apply a filter! Delete the clip from the timeline! Undo! Redo multiple times! See that the filter won’t be restored!

The Undo Redo feature is not available yet. It’s number 1 on the roadmap.



To what exactly? Most people most of the time attach filters to clips but they can also be added to the track or Output. I will assume clip for now…


At this point the clip that you deleted is removed again and so do the filters on it as well too. That is by design. I do not understand what you expect. In case the filter was added to a track or Output, I do not reproduce it.

I can only apply filters to clips in the timeline. I have no idea about having a filter to a track or output. So you assume correctly.

What do I expect after deleting a clip from the timeline that had a filter? I expect to restore the filter if I redo. This is what redoing means - recovering every step. Otherwise, we deal with data loss which is critical.

works for me

As I test it now, it works for me, too. Maybe I did describe an unrelated scenario, id est there was another procedure for this anomaly to appear. I think I didn’t click the clip again after the first redoing and so the filter seemed to have disappeared for me. If I meet it again, I let you know. As for now, the alert’s down.

The alert’s up again. It wasn’t removing the clip nor filter. I was hitting ESC while being inside the filter. That just rendered all the changes for this filter obsolete and they aren’t restorable.
