CapCut Export Quality – Potential Problems & Fixes 

Have you spent hours editing your project on the CapCut app only to find that the audio or video export quality is far from what you expected?

This article will walk you through the reasons for this worry and provide effective fixes to ensure your projects are saved on the device with the best audio and video quality.

Why is CapCut export quality bad?

  • The storage space on your device is low or insufficient.
  • Noise reduction or Voice Tone Change feature is enabled.
  • The smart HDR option in the CapCut iOS app is activated.
  • You’ve set low video resolution and frame rate settings.
  • The CapCut app is not up-to-date.
  • The CapCut cache data is bulky or corrupt.

How do I fix CapCut export quality problems?

Increase The Video Resolution And Frame Rate

CapCut Mobile App:

  • Open CapCut.”
  • Tap “New Project.”
  • Select the elements you want to import to CapCut.
  • Tap “Add.”
  • Edit the video in the timeline and tap “1080P.”
  • Drag the slider below “Resolution” to “1080P or 2k/4k.”
  • Next, set the frame rate to “60fps.”
  • Tap “Export.”

CapCut PC App:

  • LaunchCapCut.”
  • Click “New Project.”
  • Import your audio, images/video files and drop them in the timeline.
  • After editing your video, click “Export.”
  • Select “1080P” from the drop-down menu next to “Resolution.”
  • Choose the “60fps” frame rate.
  • Click “Export” and check if the problem still persists.

NOTE: Changing the Bit Rate and Codec in the CapCut PC app might also help you get rid of this annoying glitch.

Disable The Smart HDR Option 

If you’ve enabled the Smart HDR option in the CapCut iOS app, it automatically adjusts the brightness and contrast of your project, leading to poor export resolution. 

To avoid this, turn on this feature in the 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.”
  • Download the video and see if this resolves the issue. 

Disable Voice Tone Change Feature 

  • Open the CapCut PC app.
  • Import your video or images and start editing 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.
  • Toggle off “Voice Tone Change.”

Save your CapCut video in the designated folder on your computer and check if the problem persists. 

Turn Off The Noise Reduction Option 

While noise reduction in CapCut is a helpful tool to remove unwanted background noises and improve the overall audio quality, it often adds distortion or changes the tone of the sound when you download your project to your device.

So, try disabling this feature in the app with these steps:

CapCut Mobile App:

  • Open “CapCut.”
  • Tap “New Project” to import your video.
  • Tap “Audio.”
  • Select the sound/audio you want to add and adjust it in the timeline.
  • Select the audio in the timeline and tap “Reduce Noise.”
  • Toggle off “Reduce Noise.”
  • Tap “Export.”

CapCut PC App:

  • Open “CapCut.”
  • Click “New Project.”
  • Drag & drop your file or click “Import” to add your video and audio.
  • Drag the video and audio to the timeline and adjust them.
  • Click the audio track in the timeline. 
  • Uncheck the box next to “Noise Reduction” in the Audio tab on the right side. 

Save your video to your PC, and hopefully, the issue won’t bother you anymore.

INFO: If you are recording the sound in the editor’s PC app, enable the “Echo Reduction” option to get good audio on your videos after editing and saving them. 

Free Up Some Storage Space

CapCut requires significant storage space to encode the video and process it for download. 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 the download process.

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

Clear CapCut Cache Data

CapCut iOS/Android App: 

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

CapCut PC App:

  • Launch “CapCut.”
  • Click “Settings.”
  • Select “Global Settings.”
  • Click the “Delete” icon next to “Cache Size.”
  • Click “OK.”

Now save your project to your device and examine the export quality to see if it got better this time.

Update The CapCut App


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


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

If this doesn’t work, your only bet is to reinstall the CapCut app on your device. However, doing so will remove all your drafts from the editor, and you’ll have to start working on your project from scratch.


In this detailed guide, we’ve explained why your video and audio quality is bad when you export them from the editor and explored 7 solutions to fix the problem quickly.

Hopefully, you can now confidently edit and save projects on your device without worrying about the poor outcome.
