Motion graphics on the web
on Oct 11, 2011 at 5:52:59 pm

Hey guys,

I recently completed a short 1 min or so football game highlight reel, and uploaded to Youtube. Video looks great, but motion graphics done in Motion 4, not so great. I am doing my editing in FCP 7 and integrating my graphics by dragging "motn" project files in to my FCP browser and timeline. This method typically works best for me. (Graphics look good even in FCPs canvas)
However with youtube, graphics look pretty sub-par. My method from FCP is send to Compressor, use custom H264 compression, and upload to Youtube. I have tried multiple custom settings, but no dice. Hopefully I'm missing something simple.

My Motion 4 project settings are set to NTSC DV, is that where the problems lie? My video is SD NTSC though. Not sure here...

Do you set it to Best when you exported out the file from Motion?

Yeah, I did. Compression issue possibly? Should I use something other than H264?

I think the problem is exporting it to mp4. Anyway see if this helps. http://fcproducer.com/2007/03/converting-final-cut-pro-movie-for-youtube/
