Really slow exporting

Hey, for some reason it takes over an hour to export a short 1080p60fps video, the video itself is about 7 minutes long. melt.exe is using only 6-10% of cpu and 1-2% of gpu.

Pc specs: Ryzen 7 3700x, 16gb 3200mhz ram, RTX 2080 super and 1tb nvme ssd

Update: It took 1 hour and 40 minutes, and there isn’t even video! :smiley: Just black and sound…

What are your export settings?

The only thing that sticks out is the odd frame rate.

Without knowing more about your project it’s a bit hard to help.

One speculation is your source file(s) has a variable frame rate. Shotcut tries to detect it, and if it does it would have asked you to convert it to Edit Friendly. Variable frame rate videos don’t work well with any video editing software. Which could explain why it is taking a long time in exporting.

Example of what it will look like in Shotcut if detected.
