Shotcut is a free and open-source cross-platform video editing application for FreeBSDLinuxOS X and Windows. Started in 2011 by Dan Dennedy, Shotcut is developed on the MLT Multimedia Framework,[3] in development since 2004 by the same author.[4][5]


Shotcut supports video, audio, and image formats via FFmpeg. It uses a timeline for non-linear video editing of multiple tracks that may be composed of various file formats. Scrubbing and transport control are assisted by OpenGL GPU-based processing and a number of video and audio filters are available.[6][7]

Features as of version 18.07:


  • Frame-accurate seeking for most formats
  • Multi-format timeline: mix different resolutions and frame rates within a project
  • Webcam and Audio capture
  • 4K resolutions support
  • Network stream playback
  • EDL (CMX3600 Edit Decision List) export
  • Export single frame as image or video as image sequence


  • Audio filters and mixing
  • JACK transport sync
  • Tone generator
  • Stereo, mono, and 5.1 surround

Video effects[edit]

  • Video compositing across video tracks
  • HTML5 (sans audio and video) as video source and filters
  • Color grading
  • De-interlacing
  • Tools to fade audio and video from and to black
  • Video wipe transitions
  • Key-frames for effects


Shotcut was originally conceived in November, 2004 by Charlie Yates, an MLT co-founder and the original lead developer.[8] The current version of Shotcut is a complete rewrite by Dan Dennedy, another MLT co-founder and its current lead. Dennedy wanted to create a new editor based on MLT and he chose to reuse the Shotcut name since he liked it so much. He wanted to make something to exercise the new cross-platform capabilities of MLT especially in conjunction with the WebVfx and Movit plugins.
