Have you observed any messages when this happens?
Have you checked the console logs in an attempt to determine the problem.

The software works for me on 10.9.2

The Requirements for Shotcut are WHAT?!

Using OS X 10.7.5 I've tried the most recent version as well as the earliest version (from February) on the developer's website and I always get:

"Error:
This program requires OpenGL version 2.0 with frame buffer object extension."

10.7.5 only has OpenGL v1.8.1, whereas 10.9.2 has v9.6.0. MacUpdate says Shotcut runs on 10.5 on up. No it doesn't! I'm going to have to assume it currently requires 10.8 or higher.

Well, the developer's site states: "OS X (64-bit OS X 10.6+)" and yes, MacUpdate currently has OS X 10.5 or later as the system requirement. I contacted MU to advise them of the issue.

The latest version of Shotcut will not launch on my MBP running 10.8.5, so I reverted to an earlier version (14.03.27) and that works. Earlier versions are available here: http://www.shotcut.org/bin/view/Shotcut/OlderBuildsOSX

I have been using this software for a few months now, and the only time it crashed for me was when I scrolled through a file with the slider. It converted my files ok.

My only negative comment is there is no way to pass back feedback on the site, so hopefully the developer will monitor this site.

Enhancement request, the ability to snap a frame to a file, preferably lossless

Please keep up the good work.

crashes on launch on my MacBook pro running 10.9.1.

seems it is trying to load a library from a path which probably only exist on the developers computer (user ddennedy ?):

Dyld Error Message:
