New to shotcut... all was going so well!! i made a video and then exported it... fine! then afterwards i realised that i would like to put some credits at the end of the video so i re-opened my shotcut file and went about my mission of adding credits... however! when i started doing this i realised that the whole layout of the software had changed for some reason and also the timeline was now in a standalone box of its own which you can drag around etc whereas before it was just attached to the same thing as the preview bar and all just as one block. confused i continued anyway but now playback was unbearably glitchy whereas before it was smooth. also the video looked really blocky and not clear as it should be. anyways i thought well il just stick these credits at the end and then export it anyway as it may just be the playback and the actual export will come out clear and with my added credits. but now everytime i export something it takes a very long time... and then gets to 97% and fails and says something like 'qmelt quit unexpectadly'. i have no idea what a qmelt is... it sounds delicious but what does this have to do with shotcut?
any help would be great. il try and attach a photo here of how my screen now looks... with this new layout which has just appeared from nowhere... and with it has also come many many problems. ok so as ive just opened shotcut to grab a screen shot the layout has once again changed since writing this ha ha... the timeline is now at the top of the page but its once again attached to the whole program as it was when times were good... but its now at the top and still a very different layout to when i started. not too fussed about the layout but its just all the other problems that seem to have somehow come with this... which alas are still there.
