hi, im a user and primary school teacher who teach Video Editing for 10-13 y/o students, and i’ve been teaching Shotcut for more than 1 year (thanks for the Tutorial), and for last 5 years, im using MAGIX (formerly Sony Vegas Pro).
i have to say, im extremely happy to migrate from my previous video editor to Shotcut because the learning curve is not as steep as other opensource video editor. but somehow, my teaching process is limited by these questions from my students:
- Why cant i drag and drop my file straight to Timeline (more than one video)?
(which they need to drop the 2nd video in center of the player, then drag it to the timeline, then drag it to make a longer timeline, then split 1st video into the same length with the 2nd video, then drag the 2nd video into the empty space in-between 1st video)
i think this one is a great feature to add, which make them easier to drag and drop anywhere in the timeline and Shotcut can split the 1st video where the 2nd video drop it automatically.
- i cant split the videos!
(actually, what they mean is they want to split it straight from the video/audio track and not need to click the timeline metric, and anywhere they click on the video/audio track, that will be the line to cut)
this one is a feature from Sony Vegas that i, personally like it. i hope developer can implement this feature with their magic coding.
- Everytime i drag it, the video wont follow my cursor…
(its the lag)
i know some of the topics in this forum already address this matter.
thank you very very much! your hardwork really meant for me and my students
