I'm new to after effects and I'm trying to decide which preset is best for a composition comprised mainly of images, vector and text animation? Specifically, my choices for 1080p (with AE CC 2017) are either HDV, HDTV or DVC Pro and 24, 25 or 29.97 frame rate. Which specs are best with this criteria for the composition described that will just be launched on youtube? Thanks.
use a custom export settings. i would stick to 1920 by 1080 at 30 fps. (youtube has 60 fps support now but its unnecessary because of just photos and text.) when it comes to bitrate 10 to 12 is fine, as its easier for computers to digitally stream it. the bitrate on youtube for 1080p is 12 mbps anyway. you are using adobe media encoder, right? if you dont know how just click file export then add to adobe media encoder queue. from there you can adjust res, fps and bitrate.
