More about this course

I designed this course to help you start video editing using Shotcut.

Shotcut is a free, cross platform video editor. It is easy to learn even if you have little or no experience. The software is powerful enough for intermediate level video creators.

The software runs on PC, Mac and Linux so you don't need to be concern about the computer you use.

These are the topics that in the course:-

  • How to get started quickly so you can start editing in a short time
  • Overview of Shotcut layout, and tools
  • Basic video editing like splitting, joining, transitions
  • Adding titles, annotation, and music,
  • Split screen
  • Exporting your video in high definition, HD
  • Picture-in-picture
  • Chromakey or greenscreen effect
  • Animated titles, 3D title scroll
  • many other cool things

You will be able to create your first video in approximately 60 minutes

Almost 3 hours of lesson designed in a way you can choose the necessary topics to get started. 

Once you know the basics, you can move on to more advanced techniques.

If you are new to video editing or to Shotcut, I suggest you watch the first few lessons. The title of the lesson will help guide you to a specific topic.

Towards the end of this class, I've included minor updates to Shotcut.

Even if you've never created videos before, this course will be able to help you get started fast. 

Get your video clips ready and lets start.
