HD To PreProCS4 TO YouTube Does not look good
Has anyone used the You Tube Widescreen HD preset in Pre Pro CS4?
I tested that out and it does not look good. Video was lagging, jumpy a little.
Played it with QT.
I did the same footage with Vegas Pro and it look good.
I modified their preset to 1280x720, 2-pass 3mbps, 4mbps max, level 3.2
The output looks great on YouTube.
I tried your settings and they played the same way with QT, a little sluggish, but I played them with VLC and it looked great! I also went back and played the others with VLC and they looked good too. So I think the issue is playback in QT. Can you tell me if you have seen this? I haven't tried to see how it plays from YouTube yet.
Just to ask, I'm working with some fast moving Girls Softball video from HV20 1080i and need to put it on YouTube. What settings do you suggest in Pre Pro for the project settings? And what settings to export for Youtube widescreen HQ? Are they the same as you previously mentioned?
In Sony Pro, I needed to set the project settings for Deinterlaceing to Interpolate and rendered with simulare settings as yours. For the fast moving softball video these setting worked out great.
thanks again for your help.
I am using Adobe Premere Pro CS4. The export is through Adobe Media Encoder in H.264. The project settings should be based on the footage you shoot not the target video. So if you shoot in 1080i , then edit in 1080i timeline preset.
To export interlace footage to web, you will need to deinterlace the footage.
