(I’m new to the application and forums, and apologize if the question has been asked before --even though I couldn’t find the solution in the forums myself).
I have retro-game gameplay footage (lossless) that I’d like to edit with Shotcut, and maintain the pixel perfect quality throughout the editing and to the output. Could someone look at my settings and see why the output is not like the input, despite me setting the same output-size as the input size and specifying h.264 with crf=0 (GOP and B-frames settings does not seem to matter in this case)? It seems like Shotcut shrinks the visual vertical area in output. Why? How to fix?
(if you zoom in, you will see that the output from the “test5.mp4” is not sharp and 16 colors only, like original)
BTW: I don’t care about the file-size at this point
How to get result, just as the original? Appreciate any pointers on how to achieve this
