Disable The Smart HDR Option 

If you’ve enabled the Smart HDR option in the CapCut iOS app, it will automatically adjust the brightness and contrast of your video.

This often ruins the quality of your project after you export it using the app. 

To avoid this, turn on the Smart HDR option in the CapCut app with the given instructions: 

  • Open “CapCut.”
  • Select “New Project.”
  • Choose the images/videos you want to import and tap “Add.”
  • Edit the video and tap “Quality (1080P).”
  • Toggle off “Smart HDR.”
  • Export the video and see if this resolves the bad quality issue. 

Disable Voice Tone Change Feature 

You might have enabled the Voice Tone Change feature on your video while editing it in the CapCut PC app, due to which the audio quality is ruined after exporting it. 

To fix this, turn off the Voice Tone Change feature on the audio track by following these steps:

  • Open CapCut PC app.
  • Import your video or images and start editings the clips.
  • Add audio by recording or importing it to the CapCut app.
  • Drag the audio on the timeline and select it. 
  • Click “Speed” in the “Audio” tab.

CapCut Mobile App:

  • Open “CapCut.”
  • Tap “New Project” to import your video.
  • Tap “Audio.”

Export your video to your PC, and hopefully, CapCut won’t ruin its audio export quality now.

INFO: If you are recording the sound in the CapCut PC app, enable the “Echo Reduction” option to get good audio export quality on your videos. 

Free Up Some Storage Space

CapCut requires significant storage space to encode the video and process it for export. But if your mobile device or PC runs low on storage, the app won’t function properly, leading to dropped frames, reduced resolution, or even problems during export. 

To ensure optimal export quality, delete unnecessary files, apps from your mobile device or PC or drafted projects in CapCut to free up some storage space.

Clear CapCut Cache Data

CapCut stores temporary data, such as thumbnails, previews, and other media files, to facilitate faster and smoother performance. 

However, if this data becomes overloaded or corrupted, it might cause audio synchronization problems, distorted visuals, and low quality after you export the video. To avoid this, clear the CapCut cache data in the following way:

CapCut iOS/Android App: 

  • Open “CapCut.”
  • Tap “Settings.”
  • Tap “Clear Cache.”
  • Select “OK.”

Update The CapCut App

Updating CapCut might improve the app’s overall performance and add new features and bug fixes to enhance the export quality. To do this:


  • Open “Play Store/App Store.”
  • Find “CapCut.”
  • Tap “Update.”


  • Open “CapCut.”
  • Click “Settings.”
  • Select “Version.”
  • Click “Check For Updates.”
