So I have been asked by my client to deliver the finished video in these awkward specs:



Format : MPEG-4
Format profile : Base Media
Codec ID : isom
File size : 156 MiB
Duration : 2mn 56s
Overall bit rate : 7 413 Kbps
Encoded date : UTC 2014-09-30 19:46:29
Tagged date : UTC 2014-09-30 19:46:29
Writing application : Lavf51.12.1

Video
ID : 1
Format : MPEG-4 Visual
Format profile : Simple@L1
Format settings, BVOP : No
Format settings, QPel : No
Format settings, GMC : No warppoints
Format settings, Matrix : Default (H.263)
Codec ID : 20

After some research I realized that Premiere has the option for MPEG-4 export (different than H.264 export), but the settings are very limited. Specifically it won't let you make the resolution more than 720x576. So how can I export the requested file?

You need to play with Adobe Media Encoder more. It can most certainly make 1920x1080 video. Get busy.

Unfortunately the MPEG-4 option in adobe media encoder seems to be missing the necessary profiles to export the video I need (SEE IMAGE). H.263 encoding seems like a rare case and even though there are profiles to export HD video, Adobe premiere doesn't offer them, so I wonder if anybody knows a plug-in or maybe another software to achieve this encoding.

...and here I thought you simply mistyped: 263 instead of 264.

Those are VERY particular delivery specifications. For example, how on Earth can your client predict the file size of the deliverable when you haven't even completed the edit? I would be interested in knowing their origin.

There MIGHT be an application that can transcode to 1920x1090, 25fps, H263... but you're not going to like it. Telestream products can transcode to just about any media container & codec on the face of the Earth, but they're not cheap. Think a few thousand dollars, depending on what you get.

An alternative -- you create a high=-quality 1920x1080, 25fps file and let the client transcode it. With such a detailed specification, the client may very well have the software to do it.

Or just charge the client for the purchase price for the Telestream product.

It looks like the information you have was copy/pasted from MediaInfo, an app that tells you everything about an existing file. I would say they have this file and don't really know how it was made, but they want you to make something new that will work with their system so they gave you the specs from that older file.

Agree with Dave, just tell them you can't do H.263 and send them an H.264 with the other specs matched up, like dimensions, framerate and overall bitrate. It should be fine.

If they want a fixed target file size then the bitrate will have to be adjusted which I doubt is they really want.
