How to make youtube videos look clean?
on Dec 16, 2008 at 1:02:46 am

I shot some footage with the red camera and now I'm trying to upload my footage onto youtube.

My final product was 1920x1080. So youtube says to compress your video to 320 x 240. Only problem is my footage on youtube still looks horrible.

Here is my footage.






I want to get a great clean look like this.

The footage you linked from 599 Productions isn't very clean but they are one of the premier RED shooters around. So I know how clean the source was.

You can upload to Youtube now at 1280x720. I'd suggest doing that with a bitrate around 6 Mbps and see if you like what you get. Here is something I shot and uploaded today:





Go here to see the HD version (be sure to select watch in HD):

Actually, should I use the h.264 streaming Setting?



And how do I change the bit rate?

I've updated my YouTube articles on Ken Stone's site:

It includes a couple of Compressor presets that you can use as a good starting point for encodes bound for HD display on YouTube.

Cheers.
