Are you looking to export a high-quality video from Shotcut? Look no further because we’ve got you covered!

Step 1: Select the Export Tab
First things first, let’s open up Shotcut and select the timeline with the video that you want to export. Once you’ve done that, navigate to the top left corner of the screen and click on “Export”.

Step 2: Choose Your Export Settings
Now that we’re in the Export tab, it’s time to choose your export settings. You’ll see a bunch of different options available such as “YouTube”, “Vimeo”, and “Custom”. For this tutorial, we’re going to select “Custom” so that we can have full control over our export settings.

Once you’ve selected “Custom”, you’ll see a bunch of different options for your export settings such as Codec, Quality, and Resolution. It’s important to note that the higher quality settings you choose, the larger your file size will be.

Codec: The codec is what determines how your video will be compressed. For this tutorial, we recommend using H.264 or H.265 as they are widely supported and offer great compression without sacrificing quality.

Quality: Quality refers to how much detail is retained in your video. For high-quality videos, we recommend setting this to 100%.

Resolution: The resolution is essentially how many pixels are in your video. For high-quality videos, we recommend setting this to at least 1080p (1920×1080) or even higher if possible.

Step 3: Choose Your Export Location
Once you’ve chosen your export settings, it’s time to choose where you want your exported video to go. You can do this by clicking on the “Choose” button next to “Export File”.

From there, you can select the location where you want your video to be saved and then click “Export File” to start the export process.

Step 4: Wait for Your Video to Export
Now that you’ve set your export settings and chosen your export location, it’s time to sit back and wait for your video to finish exporting. The length of time it takes will depend on the length of your video and the settings you’ve chosen.

Once your video has finished exporting, you should have a high-quality video ready to share with the world!
