Firstly, what a great editor! Tried a few but this one seems to suit me great. Anyway …
I’m having issues when rendering my videos. The source material is coming straight off my video cards game capture features. The original files are in this format:
- CODEC: H.264 / AVC / MPEG-4 AVC / MPEG-4 part 10
- RES: 2560 x 1600
- FRAMERATE: 59.9727
- FORMAT: yuv420p
When I view the source assets I can clearly make out all the detail. The gamma looks fine when playing back in various players (VLC, Windows Movie Player etc).
I’ve then imported into a Shotcut project, done my edits and exported using various configurations. Same resolution as the source material. Using libx264 mp4 I’ve tried various rate controls VBR and Constant but the exports are always significantly darker.
I’ve also set my NVidia driver to make colour adjustments with the full dynamic range (0-255) but I’m still seeing this issue.
In Shotcut I have Settings -> Gamma set to sRGB (Computer) and I’ve not tried changing this yet.
What should I try next to rectify the problem?
