hi this is James and in this video we would take a look at a shortcut and this is a shortcut beginner tutorial to help you get started so let's dive straight into it so this is the screen that you see in a shortcut you will have a filters window on the left here and then here is a key where you can set your projects folder and your project settings things like video mode and your
00:31
project name ok and recent projects now if you are using a shortcut for the first time this place here would be practically empty now I've been using shortcuts so I have all these recent projects done there here is a hideo dop meters and as well as the reason files okay so if you don't see something like this what you can do is go to your view go to layout and maybe just restore the default layout okay now one thing to note is that sometimes the default layer may change slightly depending on the
01:03
developer of a shortcut and he may feel that adding certain screens so the default may be better or he may have some changes to that so this is based on a shortcut version 19.0 8.16 okay so let's continue so here is your project folder you can give your project folder and basically you are just selecting the directory where you want to your shortcut to save the files okay so let's say for example I'm saving into this raw
01:35
folder here so you go to here in my F Drive documents training shortcut wrong ok you can also name your project here as well so let's see why YouTube tutorial number one okay and another video mode is where you want to select your resolution whether you want to go for full HD half HD ultra high HD you can also do some custom modes as well okay for example if you're editing video for Instagram you can change it to say
02:06
taller than white okay so if you don't change it then of course the video mode will be automatic and when you import files into your shortcut or into shortcut then you actually set this from there okay so these are recent projects if I click on it you open up the recent projects okay and then here is the other recent files that I've actually opened up in a shortcut so if you want to close it any of this layer I can actually just go to the end and close it and then the window or that panel will be closed if I
02:38
want to open it up all I need to do is click on the tab at the top here then the recent files on the reason for the files that I'm open you will come up again so I'm just gonna close it now one other thing I want to show you is that if you prefer using a white screen for example a white background then you can actually change the team to say a system team okay so you have that bright background on the light and background so some people prefer to have the light background and some people prefer to have a dark background so you have that
03:09
option of choosing choosing the settings over there okay so they will under the system team there will be some changes or slight changes to the icons the shapes so there's something to take note of but it basically is about the same okay so I'm gonna start by importing some media that we shortcut you don't really important actually open file and shortcut will just open up the file and start playing it into the preview window here okay so let me just post it and you
03:41
have all these controls here to fast forward to play or go to the end okay that you can use all right so this is your window here so you don't really need to use the timeline to edit right so you can actually set the in and out points using by dragging this okay now like I mention a shortcut you don't need to import media into shortcut but you can actually place media into a playlist so I'm just going to open up a playlist
04:11
here and then click Add and basically this trimmed off clip is actually added on to the playlist okay now if you want to open several files into shortcut you can also do that so let's say I'm just gonna open these three files here this one this one this one okay there's three files click on open and all these three files will actually be placed on to the play list okay so you can also adjust the panel size here all right and
04:45
that's with the layout of a shortcut now down here it's actually the timeline and you prefer or use to anything on a timeline you can use that as well but if not you can also just trim off videos here and your sauce window okay so let's play some video onto the timeline and see how it goes from there so let's put this down okay down I'm just going to select this okay let's use this and I can actually drop this onto
05:14
the timeline okay so here you can also see that this video here has some waveform it has some audio as well there are several ways you can edit the video on the timeline you can just go to the back of the clip here and drag it and that you are actually trimming that video off okay so you will come to the new trim point there's another way you can edit which is actually to split the video so by pressing this icon here you have actually split the video into two
05:46
okay and then you can actually just drag the video to the left or to the right okay with your mouse okay okay so let's drag another clip down here okay now this clip here you can actually do transitions by sliding over here and then you have a transition between the first clip and the second clip okay so there are many other forms of transition but this is more like a cross dissolve
06:20
or crossfade alright so I won't cover too much of that here okay but this is just a basic tutorial now one thing to note is that there is this toggle snapping okay so now at the moment toggle snapping stand on so if I turn toggle snapping off alright so you'll be to sort of adjust this video alright now with the toggle snapping turned on it means that the clip would actually sort of magnetize and go back stick to the previous clip back to back okay so there
06:53
wouldn't be any gap okay so let me turn off that toggle again not even if you do not have that or maybe you have left accidentally left some space there you can use this to zoom in and so right click and remove the gap over there as well so if you have not done this toggle snapping on this okay you can actually do that as well with shortcut you can do multitrack editing so just right click and you can either add an audio track or add a video track so let's go ahead and add a video track
07:24
so now you have a video track that at the top so let's move this up okay so let's say you want to have this clip on top so now you have a clip here which is the deals and then of course here you have this go riding on that elephant okay so that's bit multitrack editing but you can also mix changes to it for example create some phase Chris on transitions between this half the first try and the second try okay so let's do
07:54
that so to do a transition you can just go to filters and say add okay select that tray add a fade for example okay so once we do that let's play this okay so you can see the fit of all day together audio track just right click and add an audio track so you have the audio track at the bottom here so you can add other
08:27
audio for example if you want to add the salt and voiceover you can do that okay you can also detach the audio from the video for example this audio and videos on the same track so let's do that and all you need to do is just detach the audio and you have an automatically new audio track and you can also turn off the audio here okay from each track so gives you a final control when it comes to anything with a shortcut the next thing let's take a look at
08:59
adding text to your video so let's add select this clip over here okay I'm just gonna add a text into this a video here so all you need to do is actually to click on filters make sure the clip is selected click on add and go to text so there are a few texts that you can choose from texts simple text HTML text 3d you're gonna use the text as simple so straight off over here you will notice that there is a automatic
09:30
timecode this I created okay so you can change the text here by saying there's two listen to it two years all right and of course over at the bottom here you can change it to say your font font size so when you want to change the fonts you have to make sure that your text is selected and then go to whatever font you want to use let's say let's use
09:59
x one okay so now the font have changed and you can also adjust the size of the text by just dragging the window and then placing it this window wherever you want to that text to go maybe somewhere here okay of course there other things will be whether you want to Center the text within that window or you want it to be at the bottom and you can also change the colors for example the font colors okay let's change it to say
10:32
pinkish purple alright okay does it look so good let's go to for orange can maybe we can see that better alright so this is the text over here and let's change it back to white okay so you have two years and the text is there okay now the next thing that I wanted to show you is using keyframes okay for filters or effects I have three frames you have this something like a clock so if you click on that then this this texture
11:04
would now have Efram created and basically keyframes allows you to create motion okay so instead of let's let's go back to the timeline so instead of the text just showing up for a certain clip right for it for example so now you have a clip with that text just comes up okay so what keyframes does is allows you to create motion for example you want to move this you want the text to move on screen for example okay so let's say at
11:36
the end here you want this text I'll move over to this side okay so let's play this now let's go back to the timeline okay okay so that's how you create keyframes and there are certain types of keyframes so here is actually the keyframe is actually a linear type you can have smooth or you can have
12:08
discrete as well okay and if you change it to smooth then the button here will turn into a circle if you change it to say discrete then it will be a square all right so let's go back to smooth so that it was smooth the change will be smooth okay so now all filters are not all effects will have keyframes what you need to do is to just click on the filter and see whether these things is available so if that is available means
12:39
that the keyframe is available within that effect okay so that's about using keyframes so let's go back to finally exporting your file so in order to export your file all you need to do is to click on the export tab view and you have a bunch of options that you can choose from okay on the presets okay so you have your stock you can have YouTube okay so when you click on YouTube then
13:11
you will have this option over here now basically the option is to export from your timeline you can export from the yes you can also export from playlists as well so it doesn't mean that you just have to export from your timeline now this just means that in certain cases you can just put files into your playlist let's say you put in say 20 images you can actually create a video from the 20 me just in within your playlist we don't have in to arrange it on your timeline ok so anyway we're
13:43
going to export from your timeline and when you click on advanced you'll notice that there are things you can choose ok of course here is from your timeline from your source or from your playlist and then you have your format whether you want and B 4 and B 3 are the types of formats across card for example here you get to choose your video resolution of course the aspect ratio as well the frames per second so you have all these options for you to choose from ok the codec whether you want to use lip
14:13
x264 lip x265 so you have various types of options as well as the quality that you want to export to ok and of course the audio as well now once you are done you can actually just click on export and a shortcut ask you ok what file to export to so I'm just see let's put it as Final Cut and test mp4 click on start click on save and then shortcut will ask you whether you want to export ease so
14:45
if you click on yes then the jobs panel will open up here under under on the right and then you will have the percentage as a shortcut exports that file ok so basically that's about so let me just pause this so basically this is a quick tutorial for using a shortcut there are other options as well there are lots of other tricks that make things easier work better so you can also just check out the cause I have a
15:15
cost for the full shortcut and the link is below this video so if you have questions please leave them in the comments below and I hope that this video helped you to get started using shortcut
