So, basically, still the text editor is the solution. Me I looked in the .mlt for opening tags
which - for that 10hr project - I have 1966 occurences
One more thing: browsing the forum, I’ve observed @Elusien is a member (I should have expected!) to whom I owe a big, special thanks for his JS and tutorials about how to create nice rolling credits in Shotcut, so I post below an older clip to show the result.
I’m not a big fan of visible ostensible use of filters, rather I prefer to use them discretely in order to enhance the story. From this point of view, this clip is the most “filtered” to-date: alongside slo-mo, fade-in/out, dissolve, HSL adjustments, overlay text, there is:
old-movie effect, at 1:33; tried to create the 1920’s, manual cranking movie look from a “making of” with the writer’s room clip: so alongside the old movie effects combined, the clip is also a bit sped-up, a bit blurred, reduced contrast, applied an white alpha overlay, together with a sepia tone.
scrolling credits over slideshow at 2:26: here I made a dissolve slideshow where images are a bit glowed, darkened, aligned to the left and a vignette applied in order not only to create a Rembrandt-esque dark look, but also to make room on right for Elusien rolling credits.
Bottom line, I really liked how the ending got. Like in “resurrection” above, the YouTube subtitles (CC) I made them using SubtitleWorkshop.
Again, thanks a lot - to both Shotcut devs and Elusien!
I like what you did with the filters - subtle yet effective.
Thanks for your comments. I spend more time these days “adding value” to Shotcut, with filters and frameworks, than actually using it to edit videos!
It’s great to be able to use my rusty old programming skills to produce something that is useful to so many people - glad to hear you are one of them. It has given me something to do here in Cyprus while waiting for the rain to stop - wettest winter in 100 years but summer is finally here!
It’s too bad the PTB at Fox cancelled the show. TSCC was a fine show.
Long may it continue, @elusien! Keep 'em coming!
Really nice scrolling credits, @AmperSand. Good work…
I began to create Tutorials for German users, because german and new Tutorials of SHOTCUT are very rare, especially for the nowerly latest Version in 2019.
Enjoy and hang on!
