Poor quality exports
on Dec 9, 2014 at 5:49:47 pm

I'm getting bad quality exports when using the quicktime mov format, as well as the h.264. I feel like Ive tried everything but the image doesn't hold up compared to the source footage.

Take a look:

Footage was shot on the Sony A7s at 25fps 1080p. I'm exporting with Media Encoder CS6

Source footage:

This is the quicktime export:

Settings for this:
Format: Quicktime
Preset: 1080i 25 h264 aac 48khz (1080i is the only option I have available, no 1080p??)
Quality: 90
Render maximum depth checked
key frame every 1 frame
limit 10,000kbps
maximum render quality checked

This is the h264 vimeo preset:

Settings for this:
Format: H.264
preset: Vimeo 1080p 25
profile: high
level: 5.1
render max depth checked
vbr 2 pass
target bitrate 10mbps
max bitrate 12mbps
key frame distance 1
render max quality

PC Specs:

Windows 8.1 running CS6
i7-4930k CPU @ 3.40ghz
32gb RAM
GeForce GTX 770

Any advice/tips is massively appreciated!

Thanks that seems to have improved the color, however I'm still seeing a lot of noise in my exports.

Is there a way of getting a 1080p export from quicktime as oppose to 1080i?

Go down video tab and look under resolution for field order. Change that to progressive. If you select the 1080i preset you can make sure the resolution settings is already correct and just change the field order for progressive.
