I have been wanting to switch my recordings to av1 instead of h.264 because of how much better it looks. it takes less space, and is royalty free and open source. It will probably also be the standard for video recording in a few years
Hitfilm doesn't support Av1.
Now, this is a feature request subforum, so, if you can, click the three dots next to the headline of this thread, select "Edit" and change your headline to "[FEATURE] Support Av1 Codec," your feature request is good to gi. You might want to change the body text as well.
Just in case your forum level doesn't yet allow you to edit posts, I'll tag @Stargazer54 @Andy001z and/or @triforcefx. One of them should make the change. Maybe even before you see this reply? Mods, this post is tagged as a Question. You might need to switch to Discussion to activate the Vote Up button. 👍
EDIT: Nope, there's the Vote Up. I'll click it.
@Semsau Funny I saw something on this today and thought the same, I wonder if Hitfilm will support this soon. Certainly seems like a win win.
