Hello all. I am relatively new to all this and have been enjoying playing with shotcut. What a great resource!
I’ve stumbled over something that I just can’t seem to figure out or find an answer for, so I really hope someone can help and it’s just me being dumb and missign something simple.
I ma tryingot add text centrally at the bottom of the video. It seems OK, but then when I playback to view changes, (or export and playback) the video, the text realigns to the left.
I have triedvarious things such as updatingot latest shotcut version, adding rich text to a new video layer with a colour block instead of over the video footage layer.
If anyone can show me what i am doing wrong, i’d be so grateful/ Here is a link to a screenshot. Left shows screen while editinghe filter. Right shows what the result is onc I have clicked of the filter editing. As you can see, it hops back to the left, and this is what is exported.
Hi. Thank you so very much for your help, and for the link tothe other post which is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately, mine is set to 100%, so it sounds like I might be out of luck this time as it seems there is no fix.
Ah well. Time for a time-consuming workaround I reckon!
It does indeed! I did try this yesterday (not usingthe colour block layer), and it didn’t work for me (background transparency or something maybe?), but since I have discovered the colour block, that works perfectly along with the simple text. Thank you so very much.
In Text: Simple, with the Background setting you can also create a color block around the text.
It is set to transparent by default (Alpha channel : 0) but you can set it to any color and increase the Padding to make the block bigger.
Just to clarify: I’m using the latest version is not accurate enough.
For example, at the moment the latest stable version is 22.06.23.
But there is also a newer version available for testing: v22.09 BETA
There are many differences between these two versions, That’s why it is important to specify what version number you are using.
