Bitrate problem on Compressor.
on May 2, 2014 at 8:53:07 pm

Hello,

I am trying to compress a .mov file to a .mp4 primed for Vimeo.

I am trying to adhere to Vimeo's guidelines, which state that a 1280x720 video should ideally be 5,000 to 10,000 kbit/s. (https://vimeo.com/help/compression)

Now, when I send my video to Apple Compressor, and use the MP4 setting, it seems the maximum kbps is 2048 when i choose the 'constant' option. It does not state the bitrate when I choose the "High VBR" option however...

Why can it not got higher when I choose the constant option?

The original video is Apple Pro Res 422 and is 2.38GB.

Thanks

Mayto

If you want a higher bit rate, you can customize the Compressor preset and do so. You need to save it under a different name before you try it.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the quick reply but this doesn't seem to work... I clicked the 'save as' button and gave it a new name, but the kpbs limit is still the same..

Thanks

I presume you opened this newly-created preset and changed the necessary settings, yes?

Hi Dave,

I opened a new .mp4 setting and am trying to change the bitrate to go over the 'constant' limit of 2048 kbps, but it won't let me.

Thanks

Instead of using the Mp4 setting, go to Quicktime settings and choose H.264. There you will find the settings you need.
