Version history / Release notes / Changelog

Fixed number of digits for seconds in the Timer video filter when using Format > MM:SS.SS.
Fixed compositing completely transparent areas of alpha channel darkens output.
Fixed some generators (Color Bars, Ising, Lissajous, Plasma) not working correctly in Timeline.
Fixed Settings > External Monitor > DeckLink/Intensity can stall when Settings > Realtime is enabled.
Fixed making project folder if a parent folder does not exist.
Fixed New Project > Start does not save a .mlt file until you open media and save.
Fixed launch on some Linux (e.g. gentoo) by including libselinux .
Fixed crash when undo Playlist > Remove All.

Fixed the color accuracy of the Color generator.

Changes and Improvements

Improved color accuracy of internal RGB-to-YUV conversions.
Changed Quality to 100% when using the intermediate/ProRes preset.
Added 16:9, 9:16, and 1:1 aspect ratios for transition wipes.
Moved Properties > Reverse... from the overflow menu to a button.
Changed Properties > Reverse... to use project folder if used.
When Reverse job completes, automatically open it and add it to the Playlist
Start playback from the beginning if you play when the play head is at the end.
Improved speed of the Text and Timer video filters.
IMPORTANT: The Text and Timer filters saw major changes. Please test thoroughly!
New Features

Added Preset to some more filters:
Audio Gain/Volume
Blur
Brightness
Opacity
Added Preset and simple and advanced keyframes to the Balance and Pan audio filters.
Added a Levels video filter with simple and advanced keyframes!
Added Properties > Color Range for video clips.
Replace the Mask video filter with 3 new filters:
Mask: Simple Shape
Mask: From File
Mask: Apply
The new Mask: Apply filter is important, major new feature. It makes it possible to mask filters without using multiple tracks! Use Mask: Simple Shape or Mask: From File to start the filter mask followed the video filters to be masked followed by Mask: Apply to apply the mask to the filters in between. Filters before or after the mask filters affect the entire video frame. One can still use Mask: Simple Shape or Mask: From File to affect the alpha channel for multitrack compositing as before. This makes them compatible with existing information and tutorials that suggest using multiple tracks as well as enabling collage/montage or transition effects when the tracks do not use the same clip.

The new Mask: From File is a powerful new video filter offering 3 modes:

wipe transition (stock or custom)
Channel > Brightness from a video or image file (File > Custom...)
Channel > Alpha from a video or image file
Moreover, Threshold can be animated with simple or keyframes, which is especially nice when used with luma-wipe image files (stock or custom). Not only can you wipe on a masked filter but also you can use this as an alternative way to make a wipe transition using multiple tracks (instead of same track transition).

Review by VSB2 on Jun 2, 2018 Version: 18.06 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10




Probably one of the most stable open-source video editors out there for Windows.

However, Kdenlive has more features than ShotCut. However, ShotCut has better cross-platform support with binaries for Windows.

Review by Nick on Jan 22, 2018 Version: latest OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value for money: 5/10 Overall: 2/10




I have been using ShotCut for Linux for a while now and I consider it the best legally free NLE currently available (never tried it on Windows) for the hobbyist. Blender has more advanced editing features but Shotcut is easy to use and figure out and works with every format I have thrown at it. The comment the other poster made about "no editing without re-encoding so instant uninstall" is nonsense, by defintion if you edit a video you have to re-encode. With ShotCut you do have the option of a lossless export which you can then feed to your favorite encoder or you can encode from within via x265, x264, vp9 or whatever else you want.

Highly recommended.

Excellent tool, especially for one at such an early stage of development. Timeline editing is still a work in progress but as a simple playlist or fast single track editor, this little tool is superb. Tons of potential here.
