I added a text filter with “~” tilde character included.
It works fine on my Mac, however, the text rendered weird in my Ubuntu 16.04.
“~” is not rendered but also the font size and line break applied randomly.
I suspected if it is font issue, so I experimented with other fonts, but the results were same.
I do not reproduce this. Where did you get this Linux build of Shotcut, and how are you launching it? For some reason it is not preferring the Qt-based text producer and falling back to the GTK one, which has this problem. We can address that, but I also wonder why it is not using the Qt producer.
It seems that the problem caused because I used “melt” CLI executable to generate the video in Ubuntu Server in AWS EC2. (It’s not desktop computer with graphic device).
When I run “qmelt” on this server, it exited with the following error.
QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display
Aborted (core dumped)
So I used “melt” for video generation instead of “qmelt” executable.
Now I realized that “qmelt” use Qt-based rendering and “q” meant Qt.
Am I right?
If I am right, It seems that I should use “qmelt” for correct rendering of texts, however, is it possible to run “qmelt” in a linux server without display & graphic device?
