And this is with a different clip selected, but the playhead (I think that’s what it’s called) is still at the same position. It basically only displays the text of whatever clip i have selected, regardless of the playhead’s position.
Try this: select all of the text, and change its color. Often this happens because somehow it became a transparent color. Otherwise, it works for me, and there is not enough information. You can also use Text: Simple or make your text in another program saved as PNG.
I fixed it. I think the problem was with the track I was on.I added a new track with the transparent color thing and then applied a text filter, and it worked just fine. It wasn’t a layering issue, though. It might have been because there was no actual video on the track I was putting the text on? It was just an audio file, but I had it in a video track.
To answer the questions though, I’m on Windows 10, installed Shotcut via the exe, and I used a font I had made myself.
This is the core problem. I was going to ask when I saw .ogg in your screenshot, but those could also be Ogg Theora video. In any case, a video filter modifies video, and so it needs a video input. You see the text when the filter is selected because the video filter is set inactive, and the UI element for the editor is shown. Glad you figured it out!
