Shotcut 14.11.01

A handy and very easy to use video editing application for Mac OS X that allows you quickly process, convert and stream video files.
Shotcut is a powerful video player and editor that is able to work with a wide range of audio and video formats thanks to the FFmpeg multimedia framework. At the same time, Shotcut is able to deal with popular image formats (BMP, JPEG, TGA, TIFF), and can also playback content streamed in the network.

Quick to install media player and processor

Right off the bat, the Shotcut application can be used as a simple media player: open videos via drad and drop actions, and control the playback via an intuitive slider bar. In addition, Shotcut provides support for multiple hotkeys, so you have the opportunity to manage the playback entirely through your keyboard.

However, even if the application enables you to hide the top toolbar, the slider controller remains present at all time (even in full screen mode), which might prove to be distracting if you intend to use Shotcut as your default video player.

Process videos in no time by applying built-in effects

Via the Shotcut top toolbar you can easily enable the app’s properties panel and visualize details about the video codec, frame rate, format, or aspect ratio. The same area displays data about the audio track, and allows you to see the assigned metadata.

To actually edit the video, you must open the Filters panel and apply one of the included audio or video effects. Note that each filter comes with adjustment options, so you can modify the effect until it matches your needs. Moreover, Shotcut also offers you the possibility to use the FFmpeg capabilities to encode  and transcode the video content to various formats.

Versatile, easy to use, and well organized video editor

Shotcut offers you the possibility to visualize, encode and transcode a large number of video file formats. Furthermore, Shotcut also comes with a collection of audio and video filters that can help you apply various effects to your recordings with a minimal effort.
