I've got a video that has some slight grain/colour breakup in the highlights/midtones, and it looks fine upon my regular Match Source - High Bitrate H.264 export, but as soon as it's uploaded to youtube, this grain is brought out to look terrible. I assume because of the fact that YouTube recompresses everything uploaded.
I've tried Youtube presets, massive bitrates (45), but every time the grain is still made to look incredibly more obvious than in my export. You can see the upload here:
, and it's most notable at 0:00 and 0:15.
Can anyone please advise how I can solve this as soon as possible? I didn't factor these issues happening into the release schedule and would really love to sort it out today.
