Slow motion mode


Ok I understand that we already have a way to make clips slow but I want to have a button that can make everything as slow as you want so you can edit in slow motion. this would help with doing editing that require slow motion to do like if you want text to appear right when someone says a word then you can enter slow Mode and have a much easier time.


Right arrow, or Left arrow key.
Can’t get much slower than that.:rofl:


Is there a audio cue when advancing frame-by-frame such that you know when a word is spoken?

@Captain_Sammich42 When I’m lining up visual cues with audio cues, I try to use the audio waveform to see when a word is being spoken. This doesn’t always work, depending on file formats / Shotcut versions / hardware specs, but when it does, it works pretty well. The slow-motion-mode sounds useful, have you used a similar feature in other editors?


Not quite frame by frame, but when you put up text or a text graphic, it’s easy enough to adjust on the new layer. You have to have Scrub Audio on.


i do that aswell but my friend talked to fast. i do look at the waveforms but it wasn’t helping me enough.


as you can see I cannot see when my friend said “Run” image


Yeah, that does look like it would be very difficult to differentiate between sounds!


Well you can’t hear audio when you just go frame by frame


Hold down the arrow key. At 60fps, it takes about 1 frame to get sound, at least it does with my computer.

With free software you’re not going to get every idea you come up with. You just have to work with the tools you have available.


IK theirs just no way i can track when he says ‘‘run’’ because its so fast


Have you tried to use the “Audio Waveform Scope”? You can enable it in the menu. It shows the audio waveform for each video frame.


A picture is worth…



This was a problem introduced in 18.05 that is fixed for the next version.
