I've been trying to use Pitivi to edit videos, but so far have been completely unable to persuade it to render them at anything like the source file quality
For example: Source file 1 minute length, bitrate 13.5Mb/s, file size 116.6MB.
I have tried numerous settings on Pitivi and no matter how high I set the bitrate it flatly refuses to go above a bit less than 4Mb/s - file size around 19MB.
I'm happy for the output to be .avi, .mkv, .mp4 or anything similar(but not .mov!).
Is Pitivi really incapable of producing high quality videos, or am I missing something?
