Music video edited with OpenShot

Postby trimbonz » Tue Sep 22, 2015 7:39 am

A music video edited entirely within OpenShot. No titles or fancy transitions, but the project file comprised nine tracks and 56 source files, with effects such as reverse, slow motion, crossfades and colourize put to use.

Thanks :)

OpenShot seemed to handle the large number of tracks that I threw at it, in several different formats, without significant slowdown.

The biggest challenge was the clip resize tool which, while very useful, would cause the program to lock up about 50% of the time. I became very proficient at hitting CTRL-S before each editing step.

This was with OpenShot 1.4.3. Looking forward to 2.0...

Note that there is the community fork libreshot that offers some new features and bugfixes now until Openshot 2.0 is released.
When the program freezes it basically means your computer performance does not meat your editing requirements. You can try working on low resolution clips before you export the project. Before rendering you open the project file in a text editor and replace the entries with the high resolution clips.

Thanks for the tip.

I did find playback within the editor slow on my dual core AMD 6600+ workstation, so I wish I had thought of working with low resolution copies. I will next time!

I did find the plain-text project file format that OpenShot uses very helpful in that I could edit it directly when small tweaks needed to be made, and can imagine creating a workflow where the filenames could be automatically changed to their high-quality counterparts at render time.

"filenames" did you mean "directory" to switch for final rendering?
If I understood the trick is working with low resolution files and render it with the hight one.
If so it will be easy to do, but who convert hight to low resolution files?

You mean "how"? This is the command I use:
Code: Select all
ffmpeg -i $FILE -vf scale=-1:620 -strict -2 -b:v 600k $outFile

Thanks for the suggestion.
So the answer to my question is: The user.
This involve a very hight number of different situations to manage. Or force the user to follow a straight procedure.
Sorry for my English.

I could imagine having a button "Switch to transcode view" on the preview window that then prepares the transcoded versions of the clips.
