Exporting For Internet
on Aug 9, 2011 at 2:10:23 pm

Hey guys..
I hgave a question that has been boggling me for a really long time now and I hope someone here can help me.

I use Final Cut Pro 7.

When I export a video that I know I'm going to put on (for example) Youtube. I use the
Quicktime Conversion
Compression: H.264
Quality High
Key frame rate: 24
Frame recording: Yes
Encoding Multi-pass
...etc...

These are the settings that I am told to use for internet streaming with minimal quality loss, HOWEVER when I do use it and upload to youtube.. I am nowhere near pleased with the outcome. Here is a link to a video I did using these settings.







-Now I often see videos from local production companies who make videos.. put them on youtube.. and they look really crisp and great... exaxmple in link below..







Bottom line is, if anybody can tell me how to export my video to look crsip and smooth like that, I would be really appreciative.

-Thank you.

Have you tried the Compressor Preset (not with a QuickTime intermediate) through Send to Compressor?

So you are telling me to send to Compressor?

What "preset" should I use? I have extremely minimal experience with the Compressor.

Type Youtube in the search box of the presets and use that.

What if it isn't specifically youtube, but general internet streaming? Should I use the same "Youtube" preset?

It depends - there's no "simple" answer here.

Very little on the Internet truly streams, but rather, progressively streams. The youtube setting is 'good enough' for vimeo, youtube, blip.tv etc.

Could they be better settings? Yes - it's a tradeoff of size of upload against quality (to a degree.) Most of those sites will (possibly) recompress your media and will certainly do so for downconversions.

Hosting it privately, again, mostly likely progressive streaming, is optimized when you make assumptions about your clients connection. Your encodes should be about .5-1mb/s for SD, 2-4 for 720 mb/s , and 3-8 mb/s for 1080.

But Compressor is where it's at - not QuickTime exports.

Using Compressor rather than inFCP compressor did not make a difference in quality at all.
