About This Class

This course is designed for a beginner video editor to get started with video editing using Shotcut. Shotcut is a free, cross platform video editor. It is easy to pick up even for someone with no experience, yet powerful enough for intermediate video creators.

The topics that are covered includes:-

  • 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,
  • Exporting your video in high definition, HD
  • Multi track editing
  • Animated titles effects.

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

This class is over 1 hour and 30 minutes long and I've designed it in such a way you can choose the necessary topics to get started.

When you are ready to learn more advanced functions, you can learn the topics that interest you so you don't have to learn everything.

If you are new to video editing, I suggest you watch the lessons in Section 1.0 first.

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

Get your video clips ready and lets start.
