Still using CS4 for uncomplicated edits.

When I output timeline to Adobe Media Encoder CS4, the conversion
to MP4 lacks the clarity of the original footage. I use the h264
settings. Any easy way to improve the brightness and clarity of the
output? I believe I output the highest quality settings. (I think.)
i.e. How can I avoid a kind of "muddy" look.

Thanks

What bit rate did you use?

Hi Chris,

I set the bit rate to VBR, 1 pass
Target Bitrate 3
Maximum Bitrate 6

I "volunteered" to do a short YouTube piece for some folks and
it stutters online. Also YT says these are their standards...

Video codec: H.264
Progressive scan (no interlacing)
High Profile
2 consecutive B frames
Closed GOP. GOP of half the frame rate.
CABAC
Variable bitrate. No bitrate limit required, though we offer recommended bit rates below for reference
Chroma subsampling: 4:2:0

Don't understand some of this stuff. I did h264 on 16:9.

Any help very gratefully appreciated.
Thanks
Bill in Toronto

Well it could be stuttering on youtube because of the buggy implementation
of html5 on firefox. (if they were viewing it that way)

Chrome plays youtube videos much smoother.

anyhoo, whenever I do youtube or other online videos
I always do a 5mb target, 5mb max vbr and the quality
of picture is usually great.
