I have a bundle of media files which are progressive and YV12 4.2.0 color space.
Once I have finished in Sony Movie Studio, I have 2 key goals ...
#1 they are encoded as H264 in MP4 container (720p)
#2 they maintain YV12 color space
#3 Audio will be stereo AAC
These are for on-line streaming sites.
Previously I would have just used Render as > sony AVC/MVC
However there is very explicit statement on Youtube & Vimeo that the optimum format for upload is H264/MP4
Just want to check that the AVC codec is a standards compliant H264 one.
