Creative Cow "VIDEOS-REELS" Upload Failure?
on Mar 18, 2011 at 9:37:36 pm

I have been attempting to upload a short video to the Creative Cow "VIDEOS - REELS" page and failed with every attempt and every format. It is a 960 x 720 59.94 fps 3:29 minute video. I am outputing through FCP 7.0.3 using Quicktime Conversion. I set it to the H.264 setting and I've gotten it to a manageable size (less than 500MB---455MB). After a few hours of "loading" a message comes back "No file found in upload". I have output this same file using "Program Stream.mpeg" (408MB), which I thought was an acceptible format.
Any suggestions to get this video to successfully upload? I had this same problem months ago and finally gave up. I attempted more format variations at that time and failed with all, so I am loosing faith with failure coming so regular. I would really like to post this and get feedback from the CC community.

There is a demo reel forum that is the place to post this question: http://forums.creativecow.net/demoreels

500mb sounds really big to me. How long is this video?

It may seem big, but the VIDEOS/REELS pages says tha tis the max acceptible size. It is a 3:29 minute piece. It doesn't have ".H.264" as an ending, but the format is in that form. The other does have the ".mpeg" in the title.

I did not see the "Demo-reels" forum. Overwhelmed by the variety. I posted there now.
Thanks for the suggestion and help.

[Daniel Monskey] "3:29 minute video."
Hi Daniel,
500 MB for a 3' 29" video clip is simply CRAZY.
That data-rate is huge for any H264 or MPEG-2.
Which data rate are you setting?
Which K-frames are you setting?

From FCP I "export using QT Conversion"
Leave the setting at QT Movie
Compression Setting is: H.264
Compressor quality is at "Medium"
Key Frames is; Every "24" frames
Encoding: Best quality (multi-pass)
The Dimensions are set to 1280x720 (1248x702)
Audio is Integer 48.000kHz 16 Bit Stereo
"Prepare for internet Streaming (Fast Start)"
On a 3' 29" video it compresses an output file of 455.1MB.

That is the settings. I always try to maximize my quality since I hate the pixelating at lower quality.
Perhaps I need a lesson on output procedures.

OK.
Move the Quality Slide to High and set:
- Key-frames: AUTO.
- Data-rate: "Restricted to: 12.000 kbps".
- Set the audio to AAC (256Kbps) instead of PCM.
Export and your movie will look great and much lighter.

Wow Rafael---Thanks for the help!
How can I learn how to make all the different settings and adjustments and which compressions to make? If I don't do this all day every day it seems like a lot to learn for the varying needs and uses. What would be the most helpful source from which to learn?
