Presets For Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram

Shotcut has a preset for Youtube but I’ve seen other editors that also have presets for Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter and even Instagram. How about adding presets for those platforms for the next update?


It’s all the basically the same. Also, the defaults work for all of them. These sites all want to take as much video as possible. So they are actually not very picky about what they receive.

Okay. What is the default export preset that Shotcut is set to before a selection in preset is made? Is that just a general preset? From what I see, the only difference between that and the Youtube preset is that “preset=faster” is “preset=fast”.

The defaults do not have a preset, but you can return to them by clicking the Reset button in Export.
YouTube preset also significantly reduces the GOP size.

Right but what I meant is that if the default preset is meant as a sort of an all purpose export setting?

Yes, which is why I am going to reorganize the Export panel to move almost everything into an Advanced area. The primary view will be the From field, presets, and Export File buttons.
