What is your operating system? Windows 10
What is your Shotcut version? 21.10.31
Can you repeat the problem? If so, what are the steps?
- Create a project that includes a video file.
- When exporting, point to the file used in the project.
- Shotcut will try to overwrite that file, rendering it useless
If you don’t have a copy of that file to repair the damage, the project is ruined.
That’s a dumb thing to do, I agree, but mistakes appends. When exporting, Shotcut should not be allowed to overwrite a file that is used in the project.
