I am confused why my video is big (or not)

I don’t know if my video is too big, it takes 4 hours to fully export the video. Can someone help me?

Your video is 1 hour 35 minutes long. Depending on how powerful your computer and graphics card are, how many and what type of filters you have applied over how much of the video 4 hours is possibly a reasonable amount of time for it to take to export.

20+ filters

  2. showing stuff

This is my installed ram:
my computer is normal but a bit powerful, roblox doesnt crash whenever i set my graphics to max

Not to mention that using a 60 fps framerate will considerably affect the export time.
At 30 fps for example, you’d save a lot of time and disk space @Mobo_FromDoomed

After doing what you said, this message still shows up

Did you export the entire project when you were at 60 fps? If so, how big (in gigs) was the exported video?
Shotcut is warning you that the drive you chose is almost full. That doesn’t necessarily mean that there is not enough available space.

How do i check how many gigabytes it has while its exporting?
so i can show the gigabytes difference between 30 fps video and 60 fps video

You can only see the size of the file after it’s done exporting.

Tommorow i will try exporting it

Many shotcut filters are very resource intensive, they all depend only on the CPU (unfortunately shotcut lacks GPU acceleration of filters). If you need a fast result - reconsider the filters you used, there may be some that you can refuse to make the final rendering faster. For example, in my case, using the SPR filter on a 4K 60 fps video increases the rendering time of this fragment by 10 times, I still don’t understand why this happens.

I’m currently rendering my gameplay videos, which are about the same length as yours, and it took somewhere between 90 and 120 minutes with hardware encoder enabled. Without hardware encoder, it would have taken 3 to 4 hours.

Hardware encoders render really fast, but it double the output size.
My original recording was 1080p at 60 fps, but I render in 2K using the default settings (65% quality), and the output size is always above 20 GB.

If you have hardware encoder enabled and only render at 720p, it shouldn’t take more than 2 hours, unless maybe you don’t have a dedicated GPU?
