Urgent: Transparent lyric video


I am new to Shotcut and would be extremely grateful if somebody could help me fix this lyric clip.

I need the background to be completely transparent for the video to be used on my website. This is rather urgent, since we have a release soon,and I have read a lot and tried multiple suggestions found online, but I just can’t seem to make it! So I will be glad to pay a small sum of money for the assistance, if you like, too.

Is there a helpful fella out there? PM me ASAP please!! Many thanks in advance!!

Do you mean the background of the text?¨
From what I can see from your MLT file, it is transparent.¸

Can you share a screen capture of your entire Shotcut window and indicate what part you need to be transparent?

Yes, there needs to be nothing behind the lyrics. Thank you so much for the fast response!

when I export though, the backgound is black :frowning:

What is your operating system?
What is your Shotcut version?
Go to Help > About Shotcut to find out

ok, I have installed version 23.05.18 …

@AMP if you want help to find a solution to your problem, I suggest you answer the questions you’re asked…


Maybe this tutorial is relevant: Tutorial: How to export a video with transparency

I am not sure if you can use transparent videos on a website.

Not what MB asked I’m afraid. Why did you upgrade your version midway through the project? That probably won’t be an issue, but it is always recommended to complete a project with the same version it was started in.

I can assure you that on this forum there are some very helpful members and it won’t cost you a cent! However, you will need to help us out by answering the questions previously asked. So to that end, the first and most relevant question is this:

Did the @MusicalBox tutorial @Brian linked help solve your transparency issue?

If so, then no need for any further investigation and congrats. I will wait for that answer before proceeding further.


Well, I guess that answers that (or not, as the case may be)! Obviously not so urgent after all. Go figure :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
