Hi I’ve been editing 1080p 60fps footage through shotcut. I’m at my wit ends when it comes to exporting.
I’ve tried encoding settings below
60fps quality 70% 3gb ( too large to playback on most computers and tvs)
29.9fps quality 70% 200 GOP 3 Frames. 1gb.
(PLAYS well on my Samsung phone and windows media player but stutters/lags on vlc player and tv.
I can’t seem to win.
Possibly lost a big potential customer because of this stuttering vid.
Any tips would be very welcome because I’m ready for launching my laptop at the wall!
Forgot to mention I have lvl 0 encoding/exporting skills
Not an accurate statement…
I regularly edit and play much larger files @60fps and 50fps on my 10 year old PC
Fairly clear that the issue is with the host PC plus the best software chosen for the hardware it’s running on.
VLC might be a popular player, but it certainly isn’t the best. Try POTplayer (for example).
Also, re stutter/lag in VLC - read here.
What are the specs of your computer?
SSD or SATA Harddrive?
No. MP4 is a standard. But I would stick with Shotcut defaults.
Size of file is practically irrelevant as the entire file isn’t played all at once, it’s not a single image it’s a stream of images shown at 30 images per sec (30fps)
Smooth playback is device dependent.
