I've previously used VSDC for video editing, but I seem to keep getting bad output files with it, so I'm trying to learn how to use Shotcut. With VSDC I could manually change the resolution of the project I'm working on. Is there a way to do this in Shotcut as well? I have a video that is 608x1080 and I want to rotate it sideways and change the resolution to 1080x608. I've figured out the rotation part, but can't figure out a way to change the resolution of the project so that the video fills the screen top to bottom and doesn't get cropped on the sides.

Settings => video mode => custom => add ; then you can make a custom setting project (timeline) setting. Then you can apply rotation and scale filter
Alternatively , if you have a compatible container such as mp4, you can batch rotate them with metadata using ffmpeg (no quality loss, stream copy) . eg. portrait will display as landscape in most video players ; and shotcut also reads rotation metadata
Currently there is no way to disable autoscaling of imported assets in shotcut. But if you had a 1920x1080 timeline, that's 16:9 aspect ratio, just like 1080x608 is 16:9 (or very close to). So if imported a 608x1080 (with rotation metadata so it displays as 1080x608) onto a 1920x1080 timeline, it would automatically scale up and fill the 1920x1080 . Similarly , if you had a 640x360 project (also 16:9), it would scale down the video to fit
