Hey, so I have built my new computer a month ago and have been working on video projects now. It’s great having a much stronger machine and working on my big slideshow projects is a lot easier!
In my first two videos, I noticed some “glitching” between still photos. It doesn’t occur every time but happens a lot. I have many photos in order that have a size/position filter preset applied. When it transitions from one photo to the next, often there is a bit remaining of the old photo for a split second covering areas that would be black bars because of the different proportions of the photos or from the size/position change.
It’s easiest to see for yourself. I have 2 short clips of my videos here -
I loaded this in Shotcut and slowed it to 1/4 speed and I could see that it’s more than the old photo remaining a bit. It seems to flash there, meaning the video had fully and correctly transitioned from one photo to the next, but then parts of the previous photo reappeared for a fraction of a second. It is a disconcerting effect.
This occurred only in the exported output of Shotcut. It did not do this when playing the timeline of my project within Shotcut. I created my project in video mode UHD 2160p 29.97 fps, but I exported to both 3840x2160 and 1920x1080. I see the issue in both exported versions, but it occurs more frequently in the 1920x1080.
Any ideas on this? I’d like to fix whatever this is before I make my next one. I know my Shotcut version isn’t quite the latest. Did anything change that might affect that? Am I doing something wrong with the video mode or exporting? I put this under Bug but I’m not sure.
I appreciate any help!
