I am sorry. I should have been more specific. This is my first post, and I have been trudging through that project for so long now I wasn’t thinking big picture when I asked the question. Under Settings>Project>Video It looks like it is set to Non-broadcasting 640 X 480 4:3 NTSC. I don’t recall choosing this.
I tried exporting it both ways using Hardware encoding and without out with similar results. h264_qsv and hevc_qsv are checked under the configure menu.
I tried exporting it multiple times. Originally I just used the default (I am sorry, don’t know what that was now). The latest one I used these parameters from a suggestion online about getting a high quality output).
So I guess I did change it from the original for the project. Is there a way to fix that?
The text and animated motion for the pictures were created in shotcut. They are high quality jpgs with fade in, fade out, and one of the presets for the Size, Position and Rotate filters applied.
Thank you guys for your fast response.
