New tutorial for video editing

Hi all, as discussed on #wptv SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at channel I finished the first “betaBeta A pre-release of software that is given out to a large group of users to trial under real conditions. Beta versions have gone through alpha testing in-house and are generally fairly close in look, feel and function to the final product; however, design changes often occur as part of the process.” of the new video tutorial about editing the video before submitting them to WordPress TV.

In a weekly chat we talked about the need for a new tutorial to unify the process and to make the tutorial more consistent because now we have a written tutorial for Windows users (here: Shotcut tutorial) and a video tutorial for Mac users (here: iMovie tutorial) using two different applications, Shotcut for the former, iMovie for the latter.

We chose to use Shotcut because of its easiness of use (at least in doing what editing for WordPress TV requires), and because it matches some important requirements such as open sourceOpen Source Open Source denotes software for which the original source code is made freely available and may be redistributed and modified. Open Source **must be** delivered via a licensing model, see GPL. code (link to GitHub repo), constant updates and cross platform binaries (it officially supports Windows, MacOS and Linux).

In this video I recorded the basic steps for cutting unwanted footage at the beginning and at the end, adding the intro/outro slides, adding the speaker’s slides when needed and exporting the final video.

I’ll attach to this post the video, the English script and the Italian script. The script are exactly the word I’ll say to explain the process in the audio of the video.

Please note that the video has no audio because I’ll record it when I have the final cut of the video with the improvements I’ll make with your help, so I recommend to watch the video keeping an eye on the script and please leave in the comment every improvement I can make to the video or if some steps are not clear.
