Exporting videos for YouTube
on Nov 27, 2013 at 5:34:16 am

Hi there!

I shot some video in 1080i/60i and am trying to export from FCPX and then post to YouTube.

How should I export the video to get the highest quality possible but still have it be small enough to fit on YouTube?

I've been using Compressor 4 and defaulted to 1080 YouTube, but the quality is lacking!

Is it smart to upload a ProRes 422 video to YouTube? My video is about 2:30 and is 2.8 GBs.

Thanks for your help in advance!

I use QT7 and export h.264 codec at 10,000kbps. Am happy with the results and the file size is about a tenth or so of the original file size.

Will be interesting to see what other people do though.

I've always had very good results exporting to youtube directly from FCPX. But youtube doesn't always show the full quality depending on the internet connection, at times it defaults to a lower quality. Check the settings in the viewer.

I use Google's YouTube guidelines.

For me,the Vimeo/YT presets (with a few minor changes) in FCPX and Compressor have worked quite well. As an experiment, I've tried uploading a Pro Res file; IMO, it wasn't worth the extra upload time…at least for that one test.

Episode Pro, x264-option, 1080p 50 mbps. Looks great.

Another option is uploading ProRes. Also great quality but 2-4X the bandwidth. I'd recommend having a balanced mix and normalizing the audio as well.
