Low quality after exported (Newbie asks)

Hi All

I have some problems with the quality after i have exported my video. When I
compare the original and the one i have edited, the original is in much better quality.

Any suggestions?

Best regards,

We need some more info, otherwise we can only guess?

What was the input video from? Which codec / video mode/ resolution?

What are your export settings and the video mode in Shotcut? (Settings - Video mode).
Also look in the ‘advanced - codec’ tab of the export setting and look für “quality”. You can set this up to 100% for nearly lossless video quality but with very large export file. Set quality to 55…65% for a reasonable result (good quality but not too big file size).

The input video was 1920X1080 30 fps.

The export settings are 1920X1080 30fps. Codec are h264_qsv and the quality is 55%

If you used Hardware Encoding, don’t. You get better quality with software encoding. Try setting quality to 65%, which is “visually lossless”, meaning you should hardly see any difference in quality from your original clip.
