I had bad results with h264 compression done via quicktime pro on PC After rendering an uncompressed .mov file from after effects, I used QuickTime pro to encode a H264 movie.

It turns out that X264 also known as H264 2 could give better results. But after installing the codec on my PC I couldn't find the codec option in my quicktime pro export options neither in after effects.

Is there any intuitive way to encode a X264 quicktime movie on PC?

Use Adobe Media Encoder to Render .H264.

-does adobe media encoder generates better h264 than quiktime pro?
have you tried the comparison?

-regarding the tutorial, this only wok for Mac, I already doenloaded the X264 codec and when I open quicktime pro in windows it just doesnt list X264 in the export options.
