      Hi Sir of Geekoutdoors: I have a question for you. If I want to create a 10 minute long video in OPENSHOT, how may I set or adjust the timeline, so I can see all the minutes, and seconds, until the 10th minute, where my video will end.? Kindly appreciate your answer. Thanks. Jose.

      Hi, Can I ask you something? I notice there is a word ‘effect’ on your open shot but mine doesn’t have, do I have to pay to upgrade that? Thanks

      Thanks for showing people how to do this! I have been trying to do it on my own without luck! When it comes to lowering the duration of the footer text, you can just go to the camera scroll and adjust the mask to the makers that you set. It makes it so you can get everything precise. It's pretty cool.

      Basically, I had it all down, besides putting it in it's own layer/track. face palm

      Have you tried speech-to-text applications and then copy-paste texts to your videos instead of writing all the texts?

      I installed inkscape but open space software still tells me to install it and isn't directing me to the inkscape software I had already installed. Suggestions?

    • Geri Onderweegs

      Thanks you so much for your video but I have still some questions. I noticed that within OpenShot you can change the font or size of the text I wish to add to a clip but I cannot…Whatever font or size I choose, nothing changes UNLESS I use Inkscape.
      Second, I noticed that on top of your screen, you can click om the typed textlines, which you easely can copy to the timeline..In my OpenSHot there is no such line on top of the screen,. I am using version 2.5.1. Can you help me?
