All features

Complete settings for the most advanced

Shutter Encoder has a panel containing a large number of settings, in order to define your own choices based on your files and perfect your video or audio output.
Well-thought-out settings, with parameters predefined to create files quickly and easily.

Choose your start and end

With the parameter "Input and output point" you can choose a portion of a video or audio file to extract and use only what you need. You can choose your input and output point by writing your own timecode, or via the frame-by-frame button. You will have displayed in two separate screens the start and the end of your file.

Calculation of bitrate and size

You do not know what video bitrate to choose? You have a size not to exceed ? You can use the bitrate calculation tool to see the size of your final file that is defines on the duration of your video file.

Quickly crop your images

By using the "Image" function you will have the possibility to quickly and easily crop your images as well as your videos. You can define your frame precisely by writing directly your values in pixels.

A real video cropping

Much better than simple black bars, this tool available with the H.264, H.265, WebM, OGV and WMV functions allows you to to crop your videos to the format you want. Whether by pre-setting or manually, you will find the right ratio.

Add a logo easily and accurately

With the "Add a logo" checkbox accessible for H.264, H.265, WebM, OGV and WMV functions you can choose your logo or image to add to your video. Several settings allow you to perfectly adjust its position, size and opacity.

Download what you want

With the "Web Video" function download your videos or music by recovering the web link and paste it into that window. You have the possibility to choose from the different formats available.

Automatically detect your cuts

You need to recover the cuts from a video file, that you no longer have the editing ? Use the "Cut detection" function that will do it for you, recover an ".edl" file to integrate it into your software or to export the cuts without performing compression.

The simple and powerful renaming

When you need to rename a large number of files it can be very long. By right-clicking on the selected files, you can rename as easily as quickly a very large number of files.

Create subtitles simply and efficiently

The "Subtitling" function offers you the possibility to create your subtitles easily from any video. Use shortcuts to maximize your closed caption speed.

Burn your subtitles to your format

You can add .srt subtitles format with ease in multiples video formats. With a simple and clear overview you can define font, color and size.

A render queue to stop waiting

There will come a time when we want to release different formats with different files. This queue accessible from the "<" next to the "Start function" button will make your happiness.

Record, create, share your settings

When you are satisfied with a setting, save it with the keys "Ctrl + S" to PC or "Cmd + S" to MAC, you can reuse your settings by selecting it. You can contact me if you are missing a video or audio codec, i will provide the file to drag in this window.

Send your files to ftp server

By right-clicking on a file in the Shutter Encoder list, you can send your files to a remote ftp server. If you enter the ftp parameters before a conversion, once your file converts it will be sent to the server. You can choose to receive a confirmation e-mail if you wish.

Check your file information

By right-clicking on one or more files, you will have access to all informations about your files and you can easily compare them.

Essential parameters

Because post-production is a very demanding domain, I propose different parameters to answer the best to the requirements of your workflow.

Automatic Updates

The Shutter Encoder software checks each time if a new version is available. You will be able to install it once the download is complete and take advantage of new features and settings.

Shutter Encoder takes a step closer to perfection since integrating mpeg1 exports. The speed of the software is only matched by its reliability and ease of use. What you could not do with other encoding software, you can still do better, easily and quickly with Shutter Encoder, in addition to perfectly master all types of classics encoding.

You can even change the language of the software now !!!! And much more ...

It only misses the possibility encapsulation in Quicktime Reference as well as a preview of fast timeline preview to touch the "stars of the encoding".


Shutter Encoder fait un pas de plus vers la perfection depuis l'intégration des exports mpeg1. La rapidité du logiciel n'a d'égale que sa fiabilité et sa simplicité d'utilisation. Ce que vous ne pouviez pas faire avec d'autres logiciels d'encodage, vous pourrais le faire encore mieux, plus rapidement et surtout gratuitement avec Shutter Encoder, en plus de maitriser parfaitement tous le types d'encodage classiques.

Vous pouvez même changer la langue du logiciel désormais !!!! Et bien plus encore...

Il manque seulement la prise en compte des encapsulation en Quicktime Reference ainsi qu'une timeline de visualisation rapide pour toucher le étoiles de l'encodage.

Shutter Encoder is an excellent audio / video software that is aimed not only at an amateur audience looking for simple and fast features, but also at audiovisual professionals who are looking for complete and accurate tools to complement or replace the built-in tools in editing software (Avid, DaVinci Resolve, Premiere Pro ...).
Quick and easy integration into Avid's "MediaFiles" workflow is a major and indispensable asset.
Free, PC and MAC compatible, updated regularly ... Perfect!

Shutter Encoder est un excellent logiciel audio/vidéo qui s'adresse non seulement à un public amateur qui recherche des fonctionnalités simples et rapides, mais aussi aux professionnels de l'audiovisuel qui recherchent des outils complets et précis en complément ou en remplacement des outils intégrés dans les logiciels de montage (Avid, DaVinci Resolve, Premiere Pro...).
L'intégration rapide et facile au workflow d'Avid "MediaFiles" est un atout majeur et indispensable.
Gratuit, PC et MAC, mis à jour régulièrement... Parfait !

Review by smrpix on Apr 25, 2019 Version: 12.5 (.6) OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

This is a great encoder that is very intuitive and easy to use.
It has some amazing features such as the ability to choose from 61 LUT's to add to your footage as well as add your own, image stabilization, change the luminance output to 16-235, in and out cutting without re-encoding, frame rate altering, slow motion frame interpolation and many more.
For in/out cutting, make sure you have the latest VLC player 64bit.
My favourite feature is the many codecs you can encode to including DNxHD, DNxHR and Prores. Very handy for creating proxy files for editing.
All in all, a great package packed with features and all for FREE.
Thanks to the developer, Paul, for creating this amazing software for us all to enjoy!
