4k video export settings

Hello,

I found this resolution settings

4320p (8K): 7680 x 4320
2160p (4K): 3840 x 2160
1440p (2K): 2560 x 1440
1080p (HD): 1920 x 1080
720p (HD): 1280 x 720
480p (SD): 854 x 480
360p (SD): 640 x 360
240p (SD): 426 x 240

To export a 4k is just set as below or do I need a minimum bitrate or frames/sec , coded, or any other settings update ?

thanks in advance !

This is depended on the codecs you use and the color pattern and the bit depth (4:4:4 (not used) or 4:2:2 (good quality) or 4:2:0 (standard)).
So far I know currently AV1 with 4:2:0 will give you the best bitrate.
For VP9 (youtube) and h265 and most other codecs you can add the quality settings.
VP9 offers around 2Mbit @ FHD with good quality. On Encoding you specify the Bitrate als encoding parameter.

Shotcut’s default usage of quality-oriented VBR in export defaults and many presets automatically adapts to resolution and frame rate for most codecs thereby avoiding the bitrate question. All you need to do in Shotcut is choose an appropriate Video Mode starting with “UHD” and you’re basically done.
