Best way to upload a motion composition to YouTube?
on May 8, 2020 at 8:00:55 pm

I have a motion composition in which I used audio behavior to animate a series of bars and emulate an EQ visualizer.

I used an interview audio that is 34 minutes long and I would like to upload this simple animation plus the audio to YouTube.

When I try to export the Composition as a Video I get an estimated file size of 3.5gb. I personally think that is a lot considering its just audio and a simple animation and I just want to upload the simple video to youtube.

Is there any other way I can export a smaller file? Or is there any other way to upload to youtube from motion?

What export settings did you use? I'd export using h.264 if you want to start with a smaller file size - it will be recompressed but should still be ok.

I did use H.264 and 1920x720 but it estimates 3.5gb

Well it's a long clip. You could try exporting as PRLT and then recompressing with Compressor where you have more options...

Notice the "est." at the end. Meaning, it's the estimated size. In other words "up to", but rarely IS that size. FCP/Motion merely wants to make sure that you're aware of how much free space you'll need worst case.

Other than that, Mark is right. Send it to Compressor and whittle the file down to almost any size you want. Just at the cost of quality, if that's even of any concern.
