How do you encode for You Tube?
on Dec 30, 2015 at 1:38:20 am

I'm running Vegas 11 (build 701)
and trying to find the best encoding for You Tube.
My current render setup is:

Main Concept AVC/AAC
Internet HD 1080P
1920 X 1080
Progressive scan

In the encode box, I can only render Using CPU only.
If I try Automatic (recommended) or Render using GPU an error box pops up "An error occurred, the reason cannot be determined.

This set up works but the resulting encoded video is too soft, almost mushy.
(I'm shooting with a Canon Vixia HD HF G10)

Any advise on how to get better results?

What bitrate are you outputting at? Have you checked deblock filter? Are you doing two pass VBR?

Shoot the G10 at the max bitrate, and progressive, in the setup on the camera.

Use the Match Media button in the Vegas project settings, or match the project settings to the media being shot. "Media Info" utility can help to determine this info.

Rendering to YouTube can go a couple ways.

https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/1722171?hl=en

  • Google states that 1080P is limited to 8MBs. So if you shoot your camera at AVCHD 18MBs+, and then render to Sony AVC 16MBs+, you should get a nice image by letting Google toss the additional information.


  • You can also render to something like XDCAM-EX.MFX and upload the resulting file. YouTube will accept both. XDCAM is a fixed format and so does not need bit rate selection. XDCAM is also a professional format and supports more audio channels and embedded Closed Captioning.

Thanks Aaron, I will use your suggestions when shooting my next project.

Hi Shandeep,
I am using Variable bit rate, not using 2 pass or deblocking.
What settings do you recommend?

Thanks,
Diane
