Export: Data Rate / Bit rate is reduced

Hi There,

I’m a total noob in regards to video editing but wondered if someone can enlighten me?

I’ve just installed Shotcut on my PC. I opened a new project, added a file then exported it. The original is an mpg4 is a 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) at 30fps (H.264). I left Shotcut export at its default values.

Having compared the original to the newly exported file I see that the Data rate has reduced from 100069kbs to 78688kbs and the Total Bitrate has reduced from 100454kbs to 78691.

Is that normal, should the export not be verbatim of the original?


This is normal. No, the export is not that same as your source. It is something completely different.
