Video Editing Made Easy With Shotcut Video Editor

Learn How to Create Videos Fast with Shotcut!

Get started editing your videos with Shotcut Video Editor.

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

This is what you will learn in this training.

  • A quick overview of Shotcut’s interface and tools, what they’re for
  • Basic edits like how to trim, split, rearrange and join video clips.
  • How to add and adjust transitions from one scene to another.
  • How to add text, titles and annotation to your video
  • Adding images and overlays to your video to create watermarks or logo
  • How to add, remove and adjust audio like music and voiceovers
  • How to create motion like pan and zoom with keyframes
  • Multi track editing to create Picture-in-Picture and also green screen effect.

Apply as you learn.

Each video lesson is kept short so that you can zoom into a particular lesson in the event you forgot how to create a certain effect. That way you save time without having to watch a lengthy video just to get to the part you want.
You should be able to create your video in about 60 minutes even if you are new to making videos. Once you are ready, there are also more advanced lessons to show you how to create videos with more effects.

Review from the lead develop of Shotcut.

“As the lead developer of Shotcut, I reviewed the entire course, and I think it is very good. James clearly and accurately explains many thing from basics to more advanced techniques such as picture-in-picture, chroma keying, and using custom HTML.

The lessons are sequenced in a nice progressive manner, but you can also directly visit specific topics ~ Dan Dennedy

Absolutely loved the class. Very detailed and I learned a lot from the class. James is very knowledgeable and goes through all the topics in detail. ~ Shakir Mohaseen

“Okay. I'm thrilled, so far. Your videos are bite-sized, allowing me to comfortably learn without overwhelming me. I am so happy I bought this course.

    Course Curriculum

    Dave Easley
    “…I have never used a video editor before and was afraid it would be extremely difficult to learn ShotCut because there is no manual and very little training
    material available. It is very difficult to search for exact details in the forums.
    Your course is worth more that the modest price.”

    “For the cost, it's worth it in frustration avoided! With the help of his tutorials, I was able to produce a very professional appearing video with many
    sophisticated effects.”

    Hans Lourde
    Randomly walk through video editing tips on the web and lucky me found out
    this piece of art ... Perhaps the best $30 I spent so far. I'm working on my first project ever and pretty excited about all the possibilities shortcut ,for instance, have to offer. this course will show you that editing videos is not as
    complicated as you think and will give you all you need to get started.”
    “I was skeptical after a bad experience with paying for E-learning. But as I was really frustrated about my results in learning Shotcut, I took the risk and paid the price for this training. What should I say: I am totally convinced by this training!” – .

    Shotcut made easy for PC dummies

    An Excellent course. Well organised. Easy to follow and understand. Tutorials in bite sized chunks. I've gone from knowing nothing about video editing to being very pleased with the projects I have subsequently created.

    Helpful software, easy to use

    I've used Shotcut for a year now and find the software very helpful to get my video's up and running. Not only to adjust and modify existing video's but also to make video's myself. The key to the software are the courses by James. He makes complicated and challenging matters seem easy. Thanks for the program and also for the help I received by E-mail.
