Hi all,
What's the most efficient, and least lossy way to go from XDCAM 1080p 30fps footage to YouTube. I need to be able to upload the files quickly with as little loss as possible, and have tried everything I can think.

I mostly use Final Cut Pro 7 and Compressor, so if you know of some Compressor settings or a better workflow I should be using that would maintain most of the quality and not take 2 days to get a video up, please let me know. If you can help, you will be making a miserable man very happy.

**I'm on an updated MacBook pro with a 240GB Solid State, 750GB Scratch where my optical bay used to be, 8GB memory, running the latest version of Lion. But it's still limited by the older elements of the 2009 MBP.

Thank you Bob! Exactly what I needed. I'm going to create a Compressor Droplet based off what I find. If anybody wants it, let me know and I'll create a public dropbox link.

Since Vimeo and YouTube use 720p. I would switch my camera settings to 720p, if that is your only output.

I would invest in the new Adobe Production Suite CS6. The Adobe Media Encoder has presets for Vimeo and YouTube. It's really fast.

Final Cut is dead. Compressor is sluggish and outdated. It takes forever to encode. It mike take 20 minutes to an hour to transcode in Compressor and it only takes 5 minutes for the same transcode in Adobe Media Encoder.

It's worth the investment and a huge time saver if you do this alot.

Thanks Brent! Do you think CS5 will work or does it have to be CS6 because I have the CS5 media encoder, just haven't used it. Will let you know how it works out because you're absolutely right about compressor. I've always known it had a terrible interface, and even though the new Compressor is faster than previous versions, it's still pretty slow (faster to transcode in VLC).

I'll think about shooting in 720p. Problem is some of what I'm shooting may be broadcast bound, so I'd like to have those extra pixels for source files. YouTube says it accepts 1080p, but after as many failed uploads as I've been having, I'm beginning to have my doubts.

Since YouTube is basically serving as a reference video, I wonder if it would be quicker if I compressed to 720p though.

If you have any other thoughts please let me know.

Much appreciation,
Michael
