Also @smehta if you’re like me, it’s possible that you’re running this on a laptop which comes with multiple graphics cards in it, like my Dell XPS which has both NVIDIA as well as Intel Integrated graphics. I’ll copy/paste some of my response from another post here, partially to help out but also so I can get up to the correct number of posts so I can actually upload BOTH images required to help folks workaround this problem.
The fix is pretty simple. Even though it’s selected as default, right click the Shotcut icon and then explicitly select the correct graphics processor (might require you to experiment). In my case, the weird thing was that even though Intel Integrated graphics was my global default, Windows wasn’t launching it on that card. To fix that, go into the same menu as last time but click “Change default graphics processor…” and set it up in the next window that comes up. Here’s a screenshot (unfortunately as a new user, I’m banned from two images in a post): https://imgur.com/uYqPe01
No problem, sorry about that. I just deleted the other post. The initial post was the one that came up in google search results. Then, apparently according to the forum software, posting multiple images wasn’t allowed for new accounts.
Good idea, just didn’t think of it at the time since I wanted to have the images go with the flow of my explanation. No worries… just an unusual restriction that I’ve not seen before. It works fine with just the one image for now.
