Shotcut Shadows

So I’ve been wanting to put this type of shadows in my videos in shotcut. Can it be done?

Yes, just introduced with Shotcut version 20.09.01 Beta.
The Pillar Echo filter

There are several reported bugs with this version, not specifically with this filter. The bugs are being addressed before the next full release. You can read that discussion here:

With the current release of Shotcut you can also perform the same thing with various different filters.

Filters Used

  • Rotate & Scale to scale the video/image up
  • Blur Filters (4 blur filters to choose from)
    • Blur: Box
    • Blur: Exponential
    • Blur: Gaussian
    • Blur: Low Pass

And from our YouTube channel

Oh thanks! one more thing though, how do I add the shadow that he uses? I want to make it kinda stand out
