So I used a movie file (VLC) and captured a collection of my favourite scenes (none exceeding 10sec). I compiled the scenes into Shotcut (no additional editing or filters). I have 30-40 scenes in total and the program crashes like crazy.
I’ve tried alternating between GPU Effects (on/off), exporting and then combining into smaller chunks, but most importantly… I’ve been exporting at 1920x1080 resolution despite a 720x404 input
I’ve also upped the aspect ratio to 16:9 (YouTube standard) and increased the quality from 60% to 90%
