Shotcut on Pop_os

I run Shotcut on pop_os, but I never figured out how to install an icon in the Gnome dock to start it up, so I just run it from a shell in the terminal app. For decades on various Unix and Linux systems, I’ve always gotten rid of “logging to the terminal” using the idiom:

% ( shotcut 2>&1 >/dev/null & ) # stderr dup’ed stdout and stdout to bit bucket

But Shotcut must do something like open /dev/tty for that logging, and the above doesn’t work. How do I get it to NOT fill my terminal buffer with a line of text for every little thing it does?

You need to redirect stdout before stderr: >/dev/null 2>&1
The way you have written is that stderr is redirected to stdout file handle and then the stdout is redirected to /dev/null but then stderr will then still have its file handle.
