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
Review from past trainees.
“Compared to individual YouTube tutorials, this course lays out in a menu-like format all you need to know about the software, which makes it so easy to know where you are, where you’ve been, and where you’re going.” ~ André
“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. Thank you for being thorough and taking the time and effort needed to make it comprehensible for me. I was completely overwhelmed and intimidated by the Shotcut interface until watching you first two video chapters of this course.”
