It’s great to see all the stuff showcased here! Thanks to everyone for posting - very inspiring.
I got into videography and editing as a hobby after I bought a drone and wanted to do something with my footage. My laptop is not a bad spec but Shotcut really is the best balance between performance and functionality. I like doing stuff with in-camera transitions and most of my stuff is filmed on my phone or my drone but I’m pretty happy with the results so far!
My first real adventure into a short film/travelog was my “Dromahair” video
which uses a lot of Shotcut features and there is also a hours of custom chroma masking and keyframing in there.
My most recent one is simply drone footage of the local school but it has a nice “sky transition” at the marked point here which took me a good bit of time.
It could be a bit cleaner but it is still a nice effect. There is another nice masked transition starting around 1:51 which I think looks good too…
If you like these then this is a playlist of my better stuff!
Everything apart from “The Murrough” was produced using Shotcut…
I mostly use ShotCut for my micro sUAS videos of late, so basic things like PiP, audio, levels, corrections, etc.
Prior, I mainly used Serif MoviePlus X6, so many of my older videos were produced with that.
Here’s the video that made me start using ShotCut because I read an article about how amazing it’s color correction/grading controls are, especially within the world of FOSS NLEs (they were comparing it to DaVinci Resolve’s controls, so no small honor!):
Here’s one of the first times I used ShotCut for a composed video (As a bonus, you can see my wife laugh at me when I crash):
Here’s one of the more recent micro sUAS videos:
I also have been using ShotCut to edit/clean up videos of myself practicing my Theremin to send to my instructor, and having the various histograms/level meters in the GUI has been absolutely… instrumental for that.
Hi, I’m Riven editor of Randomised Gaming a YouTube packed full of video games from retro to modern and I’ve been using shotcut for just about every video on the channel, bar some of our really early ones.
Been a little while since I posted here on the forum, but wanted to show our latest video where we use a large number of tricks in Shotcut to do split screens and other tricks all the movement in the video with the banners is also Shotcut, using the size and position filter, along with key frames in the time line
The zoomed split screens were rather tricky to do, requiring a mix of filters including Crop: Source, Rotate and Scale finally Size and Position. Even then the nature of these fliters wasn’t ideally and the fact there not perfectly aligned is due to them not been able to do what I exactly wanted, but it was close enough. I’m amazed I got them to work together as well as I did. Shows what you can do in the editor, once you understand it.
@stgtravels - Stefan, that was one of the most entertaining and informative videos I have ever watched! Bravo. Background music choice was excellent and just the right volume. Your enthusiasm for the flight was infectious! (Flanned Plight time!! priceless!)
Hello, I am downloading and starting to use Shotcut for the very first time. I’m coming from NCH Videopad, which is great software, but I’m really looking for something with more color correction and grading features. My YouTube channel is here: http://www.youtube.com/c/RickScheibner
Just got round to catching up with this thread. I loved this video. The music is so upbeat and the simple way you’ve created this teaching aid is brilliant. Did you use keyframing to move the highlighter? Do you plan to release more?
Nice job guys! My grandson watches Minecraft videos, so I recognize some of the spoofing you did with this. Some of your edits and cuts are well done. Also, kudos for spending your stay-at-home time so creatively. I know that all of this time out of school hasn’t been easy on so many of you. Keep up the good work!
