Project settings

Hi there, I am using Shotcut onky for a few days, and I really like it. Just one question, I think it is important not to waste time with wrong settings. Shotcut will define the video and audio settings matching with the first clip I open? This means, when I import all my clips from my camcorder ( 1080 p or what ever) the settings automatically will be correct for editing and exporting as well? Normally I don’t need to change any setting? Just import the clips and that’s it. Thanks for your patience, but I already have tried out other programmes and the settings issue often was a mess…

Basically, the answer to your questions are “yes.” You can read more here

Just for clarification. Should you select the settings based upon source footage or the desired output?

The desired output. These settings are effectively the output format of the timeline.
