Johnny HarrisCan't get my bitrate above 5,000kb/s for final render

Hello,

I am preparing a animation cut for a client who wants to publish a 720p h.264 .mp4 to vimeo. Vimeo would like at least a 5,000kb/s bitrate for optimal streaming. I'm having trouble getting that.

Some information about my AE comp: 1080 23.976 using lots of vector assets. I output the renders in Media Encoder as 1080 h.264 format with the target bit rate at 30,000 kb/s with 2 passes and best render quality checked.

I then edit the renders in Premiere and export the final cut as a 720 h.264 format with target and max bit rate at 20. I even have tried to go higher and higher with that bit rate slider. No matter how high I go, the final cut comes out with a 4,767kb/s bit rate.

Any help on this?

I bet you can do it in Adobe Media Encoder.

Dave,

I am using AME for all of this

Did you make a custom preset for it? You can.

Yes. Made a custom preset with the high quality settings I could muster and still I can't get a final cut bit rate that is above 5,000 kb/s

What profile are you encoding as? Can we see a screenshot of your AME settings?

Using "High" profile with VBR 2 pass and "use maximum render quality" checked




And scrolled down on video tab:


Thanks for any help!

How does the end product look? If it looks great, go with it.

Here's the thing, if you're using vector-based images with large swaths of color that's identical, the H.264 compression is going to crunch the heck out of the file size without losing much quality because a lot of the color information is redundant. It may just not need to use up information for that.

If you really want to bump up the number for some reason, you could try constant bitrate instead of variable.
