Open-source video editor Shotcut now with better 4K support

The developers of the Open-sourcevideo editor Shotcut made some huge improvements to the application and it gets better 4K support.



It was already possible to handle and edit 4K video with Shotcut, this wasn’t a really simple process. But that has changed now with the latest update.

“Shotcut has been able to do 4K for a while now if you made a custom video mode or correctly use automatic mode. However, there were a few things we wanted to do before making it official. First, you really need to be using a 64-bit build, and we delivered that for Windows in the previous release. For this release, we added 4K video modes to the Settings menu and extended our support for Blackmagic Design 4K SDI & HDMI devices,” according to the Shotcut developers.
