Hi, thanks for the reply.
I’m using Shotcut version 22.12.21
My source file properties:
And my recording settings:
I use Bandicam to record and had to choose AVI because I have problems with MP4 source files. The frame would freeze for a couple of seconds at each split point. The freeze doesn’t happen if I convert to edit-friendly first, but man, the converted file size is way too big. It’s like 4 times the original size, even if I don’t touch the slider.
So I just tried extracting the audio and putting it back.
First, I disabled the video by exporting it as MP3. After the job has finished, I detach and delete the original audio and replace it with the newly exported MP3. It seems to have worked since there’s no more crackling sound.
I suspect there’s something wrong with the codecs that Bandicam uses.
Do you have any suggestions for what app I should use to record videos? Maybe something that’s highly compatible with Shotcut?
As Dan already told you here it is probably variable frame rate or very long GOP. If you provide a screenshot of the properties panel in Shotcut we can see if Shotcut detects the variable frame rate. But Shotcut can not always detect it.
I know some people use OBS and they are very careful to configure the record settings to ensure that it uses constant frame rate.
