17.12.03 version is warning me that I only have 41Gb of space available on the drive when exporting an edited short clip of which the source file is only 115Mb in the first place.
This seems unnecessary.
Is this warning too soon do you think?
Shotcut does not try to predict the output size of the file it is writing (could be export, reverse, convert, etc.). With that said, even if the new file will fit, if the drive is low on space, it is not a good idea to keep using it. This was added directly in response to people complaining that there hard drive was filled by Shotcut. I am not changing it at this time to be smarter or configurable as there is more important stuff.
