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

Review from past trainees.

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

“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.”

“This course got me up and running with Shotcut in no time” – Dave Ives

"Let's just say, within a day I was doing more with video than the goal I had set for myself. I started with one video prior to this course to over 30 plus, less than a week. Thanks for bringing a newbie into focus.” – Johnny Baker

    “…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.

    VALUE Right from the start

    James Woo super short detail oriented training is perfect for those of us working with SHOTCUT. Well I may as well review like I do for my Amazon Reviews or on YouTube. PROS: James Woo Training is like the skeleton key that truly unlocks your knowledge to the powers within ShotCut. It saves you hours of trial and error for newbies and intermediate editor users. (I fall somewhere inbetween) I love Shotcut and Jame Woo too as for $29 I feel I can now solve my editing challenges. CONS: Darn few actually none as my only con is I've realized in my quest to be 1% better daily that I truly had to learn the language of editing. James Woo actually does a great job of that as well as contextually you can figure out the meaning of just about any of the terms mentioned. Yes I'd buy this course again and recommend to friends. As James Woo does update things and your course access is for one year, rather than lifetime, or one time through I probably will update for at least next year and maybe the year that follows. COST WISE you can not do better than this course, believe me I've looked. Yes you probably could put on your pirate hat, but I would not recommend it as guys like James Woo are real, really out to help us, so we should help them too. It is the right thing to do. Great Course I'm on lesson 9 out of 75 already receiving value, and now hopefully I'm sharing it with YOU while your read this review. Don't hesitate just buy it now. Not only that you can even use your PayPal account to pay for the course. My only regret was thinking I'd just learn it all without getting this course right from the start.

    Very happy with the support

    The reason I wanted to try Shotcut was because I was getting tangled up in technicalities while using much fancier editing software called Adobe Premiere Pro. Shotcut was the third editing package I tried after Premiere and I was about to dump it along with the others when I came across James Woo's tutorials. As other people have said, they are very well-organised, clear and easy to follow, so that nothing seems overwhelming and unlike a lot of YouTube video series if you get lost or distracted, you can find all the previous steps waiting for you to go back to. I can't say I've mastered Shotcut yet because I'm still using Premiere for some projects, but the knowledge that with a little more effort I could make perfectly decent videos with this much simpler programme is very encouraging. And having James's intelligent, patient support at the end of an email makes all the difference.

    Excellent after sales support

    I am new to Shotcut and I have found the course very helpful so far. I have contacted James several times with questions and have received excellent and very prompt support from him. I highly recommend this course!

    Well organized, clear, and supported

    This is an excellent way to learn to use Shotcut. Each video is clear and sequenced in a logical way. I began the course already in the middle of a project, so I have skipped around in the videos and it has been pretty easy to find what information I needed. When I had a question, James made an explanatory video right away that was quite helpful. While I haven't been through all the advanced topics yet, I am looking forward to learning more editing techniques. Thank you to James for making such a helpful course.
