Hello everyone. I have have a video project that seems to export at 640x360 no matter what resolution I choose. The input source files are 4k resolution. I’m not sure what’s the cause here. I restarted Shotcut and it didn’t fix the issue. I also looked at other project files and they have the correct resolution. The main difference between tthis project and the other project I did is that this project is fairly long (about 40min compared to the 2min of other projects)
(For some reason I keep getting an error when I try to add a screenshot)
Still no change. I turned off proxies and preview scaling and I get the same result. This video is getting published in mid November so there’s no rush. If all else fails I can redo the entire project with a new file
Look at the video file names that appear all over the window in various places when you have the project loaded. Do they look like your source file names or some random collection of letters and numbers (proxy file name)?
From the release notes for latest version 22.06:
Fixed repairing a project with Settings > Proxy > Use Proxy on saves proxy file paths into repaired project file.
I got the hint because when I go to export and clicked Advanced, I see the resolution set to 640x360. I would change it to a higher solution, but the quality remains the same. Funny enough when I look at the codac info for the video in VLC, it says 3840x2160
Your Settings > Video Mode is wrong. Open the project and then change it. Then, use Save As to save with it a different name in case that went wrong. You might also want to check and change Video Mode when NO project is loaded to see what it will use for the start of your next project.
The .mlt file shows 640x360 for the profile but 3840x2160 for the consumer. So when we do the Output test like @Elusien did:
…and we get the 3840x2160 response:
…does that mean Output is showing us the consumer, which is not necessarily the same as the profile/Video Mode? Meaning we cannot check Output properties to deduce project resolution reliably? What sequence of events causes profile and consumer to have different resolutions? The OP didn’t say they were overriding resolution in the Advanced panel to create 3840x2160, but it’s the only thing that makes sense to me so far, except for the Output properties part.
