I could not find a forum on here that is dedicated to Imovie (the program I use) so I thought I would drop by over by here and see if you could help. (if there is another forum or place I should be in just let me know and I will head over there)
I do gameplays and commentary for videogames and have been for about a month now; however, recently I seem to have a problem with exporting. This problem only started happening on my most recent videos and it is really becoming a problem. (as seen in video :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25XuBaOp3Mo)
the problem seems to be a loss of pixilation or loss of frames in the screen becasue when the camera moves the picture gets filled with large boxes to, I guess, fill up lost frames or space. This does not show in the preview file but only after exporting.
I tried to change export options to sync up perfectly with my originial footage settings.
Original footage settings: 17,000 kbps is what I capture at, 1920x1080 H.264,AAC codec total bit rate: 11,505 and the size per clip is about 151 MB
Export settings: MP4, H.264 codec 20,000 kbits/sec date rate FR: 30 key frame: 24
AAC-LC music 320 kps and it will export into a file about 1.6 GBS.
So I exported to the media browser and found that it had the same problem. I also tried to export as a FLV but I got an error called -32766 and I think I need a third party software to convert it. Also I took a look at the video frame by frame (the part it losses quality) and found that it was perfect before exporting. So I am guessing this is a conversion issue.
I am ready to record the segments necessary over again if need be.
