exporting AVCHD to mp4 from final cut for uploading to youtube (apple prores, .MOV, h264, x264, handbrake)

Hello everybody,

I Edit 1920x1080 AVCHD in Final Cut 7. Working with apple prores to export video to mp4 and then upload it to youtube. The goal is obviously the least quality loss in the process and to get a file as light as possible. Which of these three options is correct?

1. Export to mp4 from Final Cut (using quicktime conversion): h264 codec and bitrate 8000 kbps.

2. Export to .MOV from Final Cut (using quicktime conversion): h264 codec. Then, use handbrake (mp4 / x264 ).

3. Export apple prores sequence to. MOV from Final Cut (using quicktime movie). Then, use handbrake program (mp4 / X264 codec)

thanks a lot!

None of the three!

Export a reference movie from your timeline and then take the reference file into compressor.

Hi Bill,

I finally took the reference file and took him to compressor. I installed x264 and got one .mov very heavy, so I had to use the handbrake to get less weight and get mp4.

I did the same operation in streamclip and got a mp4 file (x264) with same size than .mov (compressor). So in both cases, if I want the less size I have to go on 2 steps (first compressor or streamclip and then handbrake ..)

any more suggestions?

thanks.
