How to build

Warning: building shotcut should only be reserved to beta testers or contributors who know what they are doing.

Qt Creator

The fastest way to build and try Shotcut dev version is probably using Qt Creator.

From command line

First, check dependencies are satisfied and various paths correctly set to find different libraries and include files (Qt 5, MLT, Frei0r and so forth).

Build Makefile:

qmake PREFIX=/usr/local/

Compile shotcut:

make

make install is partially working.

Best way to tesst shotcut is to execute it from source folder:

./src/shotcut
