Can anyone recommend a software, hardware or settings solution to improve the quality of videos exported from FCP as:
3 minutes duration
1280 x 720/29.97
data rate 3-4K
2 pass VBR
I've heard that we may need to keep our data rate at 5K or above for acceptable quality for 1280x720P H.264 MP4's but I suspect there may be ways to get it lower. Anyone have any suggestions that may help do that? Sorenson squeeze, etc?
