[AE Render Output + Process] Best Format & Video Codec?

Hi,



This is a 3 part question I have in regards to my specific needs. I'll keep this as clear as possible:

Please let me know if there are better ways of accomplishing this goal (as I'm still a beginner)



- Goal: To create motion graphics animation videos (+5 min) by using AE to create a Composition with 5-10 sec scenes. (Windows PC btw).



- Take this Composition, and render them using Render Queue into a LOSSLESS format, since my goal is to take these video clips and create transitions for them through AE or PR and render out the FINAL video clip (which will be +5 min long).



Q: What is the best Format and Video Codec I can choose under Render Queue > Output Module settings? (for my situation)



- Then, I'll go back into AE, in order to create more scenes / compositions to complete the rest of my final video.



- After rendering out these separate scenes, I need to add transitions between these individual rendered video clips. I've heard a good method is working through PR in order to create the transitions within the PR Timeline and rendering out the whole video through there, but what if I need to create AE-based transitions?



Q: What's the best workflow you could recommend to compile/combine all of these video clips together into a final video? (in my case)



- After I have completed editing the entire video and need to upload it to YouTube, I need to choose a Video Format and Codec.



Q. What is the best Format and Video Codec for rendering out the FINAL video clip for YouTube settings?





Thank you,

Kevin.

On a win machine, I'd look at DNXHD or DNXHQ codecs. They're great, and because they're not using the lossless settings, the file sizes are a lot smaller. Typically, lossless is overkill.

There are YouTube compression presets in Adobe Media Encoder made just for that purpose.

Thanks Dave~

I've been doing some research in the meantime and was also looking into DNXHQ and see it as a very viable option for me.
