          16. Allows you to insert clip(s) into a video that references the same timeline.

            Just like there is a video tape insert, that one is digital.

            This allows you to produce a video that maintains the encode of the unmodified part(s).

            Example: On a 52min video you need to edit a part from 00:26:00:00 to 00:26:30:00, just export that part from

            your timeline that will have a start timecode of 00:26:00:00. Add the master file and your video inserts to the file

            list and then start the function. The algorithm will automatically insert the clips from timecodes without any

            compression.

          This option changes original video duration.

        5. Drop
        6. Removes extra frames without changing it's duration.

          It has to be a multiple of 2 for best results ex: 50i/s to 25i/s conversion.

        7. Blending
        8. Blends two frames to make a new one and achieve the selected framerate.

          This option avoid video stuttering with framerate conversions and it's fast to compute.

        9. Interpolation
        10. Creates new frames by using ffmpeg minterpolate filter to achieve the selected framerate.

          This is the best option for small framerate changes on quality side.

        11. Ultra-slowmotion
        12. Creates interpolated frames to the selected framerate then plays it to the original framerate.

      22. Force to progressive

        - TFF: Top Field First (most common)

        - BFF: Bottom Field First

        - x2: Doubles the fields ex: 50i to 50p conversion

        This option is usefull when video is interlaced but metadatas shown as progressive source.

      26. Force interlacing
      27. Encodes your file(s) with interlaced metadata.

        If your input video is in 50p (or 59,94p or 60p) it creates a true interleaving, odd frames via the first image,

        even frames via the second image to output a real 50i (or 29,97i or 30i).

      28. Force fields inversion
      29. Allows you to switch from BFF to TFF fields.

      30. Enable alpha
      31. Keeps the alpha channel if available from your video input.

        Make sure the output container supports it!

      36. Generate format
        1. OP-Atom
        2. Creates medias for Avid Media Composer using hexadecimal naming and bmxtranswrap tool.

          The destination can be directly outputed to "Avid MediaFiles/MXF/1".

          If a new card is detected from the files list, numbered folder will be incrementeded.

          When you'll open Avid Media Composer, an .mdb file should appears in each folder to drop it to your bin.

        3. OP1a
        4. Creates OP-1a format files with .mxf extension.

        5. AS-10
        6. Creates AS-10 format files thanks to bmxtranswrap with 8 audio tracks.

    17. Empty the list when process complete
    18. Files are removed from Shutter Encoder's list after process completed.

    19. Action at the end
    20. Allows you to choose between closing Shutter Encoder or shutdown your computer when all process are

      completed with a 60 seconds timer. This option is not saved when Shutter Encoder is closed.

    21. Set GPU decoding
    22. This option is only for decoding and it's on "none" by default because it can in some cases be slower than

      only using CPU.

       

      Pros:

      - When you select to decode by GPU it only works on specific codecs: MPEG-2, H.264, H.265, VP9, AV1.

      If the input codec is different, you will not have any problem, it will just not use it.

      - Less CPU consumption because of GPU processing.

      - If you're using GPU encoding without any filters or corrections, you get a significant boost to use GPU

      as decoding also.

      - You should get pretty good advantages when using GPU decoding with editing codecs like DNxHR, ProRes etc.

      (because GPU decode and CPU encode).

       

      Cons:

      - CPU has to always send datas to GPU, so if you're using some corrections (like color correction, denoise or

      whatever) the result could be slower because of CPU transfers + CPU filters.

       

      To conclude:

      - It should be a good option to set on "auto" if you're using Shutter Encoder to create editing codecs

      as output, without extra options.

      - In other cases keep it on "none" or experiment it.

    23. Set scale mode
    24. Allows you to choose the scale algorithm.

      - fast-bilinear is the fastest but bilinear offers a better quality for a very small difference in rendering time.

      - bicubic is the default because of the right compromise between speed and quality.

      - I recommend to use lanczos for the best scaling quality.

    25. Set screen recording framerate
    26. Set the screen capture framerate.

    27. Set input device framerate
    28. Set the input device framerate.

      Make sure your device supports this framerate!

    29. Set number of used threads
    30. Allows you to set the number of threads for your cpu according to FFmpeg capabilities.

      By default 0 use all available threads, but using the value 1 can preserve CPU loading to not freeze your computer.

      Max value is 16, otherwise it will not works.

    31. Set still image duration
    32. Set the default duration when a still image is processed into a video codec.

    33. Set black detection
    34. Set the threshold for the black detection function.

    35. Set theme
