Hello, I’m trying to export cropped video without any success. Shortcut version is: 22.12.21
I tried both:
Adding clip + filter Crop: Source then Settings → Video Mode → Automatic // this returns original resolution and removes crop ( it remains with weird values but video is not cropped ).
Creating project + adding clip then filter Crop:Source and Settings → Video Mode → Automatic
No matter I do it does not seem to work properly. This should be simple why it’s not working?
All the time in export resolution is 1080x1920. What am I doing wrong?
Video mode should be the final resolution you want.
If you want vertical video then choose 1080x1920 when you start the project (from this point on you never change this anymore).
Then you add your videos to the project and you’ll see black bars, this is where you use the Crop filter to choose what to show and what to hide.
I did that but if I try to export movie it’s with that bars + resolution is not changed to crop it’s still 1080x1920.
A few screenshots would help out as at this point I could only start guessing.
Does the video look right in the Shotcut video area?
This is a relatively frequently asked question, and searching the forum reveals a couple of solutions:
Using Shotcut, how do I remove letterboxing (those black frames / bars at the bottom and top of a video) from a video?
That’s one way, but crop:source should work, you just have to use a CUSTOM video mode after cropping, and set it to the same dimensions as the cropped video (automatic video mode will not work).
See this post for instruction on how to perform the cropping you are trying to do:
When someone needs to export a cropped section of a clip (or entire project), the process is not very intuitive. It involves several steps that are not obvious to a new user.
Many will think that using the Crop: Rectangle filter will do the trick. Others will think that it will work by changing the Resolution settings in the Export panel. This comes up quite often on the forum, including a few times in the last couple of weeks.
So I wonder if it would be possible to add some sort of Project Cr…
If you do not need to do any video editing, then I recommend
Handbrake for this simple cropping operation.
I think one piece of information that’s probably confusing right now and might help you figure out the steps (along with the links provided in other comments) is that you
need to know in advance what your final resolution will be and you will need to change the
Settings -> Video Mode -> Custom -> Add to that value (type the same numbers in resolution and aspect ratio).
So you must decide if you want vertical video in HD (then type 1080x1920) or if you want square video (type 1080x1080) etc. Automatic video mode will not help you here,
Here is what you need to type if you want a square video of 1080x1080 resolution.
After this change, use the Crop:Source filter to crop videos around in your project and just export with default settings (export resolution will automatically match your project resolution - you probably never want these to be different).
Hello, I know many tools ( ffmpeg, avidemux etc…) to crop it outside Shortcut but I thougth that this is so simple case that should be supported inside this application :).
Mate see my post here a few days ago.
Yes its something that could be greatly improved
