M100 Export for You Tube
on Mar 22, 2010 at 7:28:42 pm

Perhaps this has been discussed in a previous post. We have attempted three (16:9) exports from Media 100 as a H.264 1280x720 self contained QT movie When we post these to You Tube it does not filled the specified viewer size. What is the best way to export these so they can fill the YouTube viewer? Any suggestions would be great appreciated!

Does your movie look stretched/distorted on YouTube or does the aspect ratio seem to be correct?

Basically when we post the video to YouTube the viewer pillar boxes the video material. The video was exported as a self contained QuickTime video at 1280x720. You can see for yourself by going to:







Fast forward past the black and white opening to clearly see the pillar box. We were thinking if it's shot in 16:9 and exported as 1280x720 it should show as such. Any ideas? Thanks!

One thing you might try is unchecking the "preserve aspect ratio" in the QT export dialogue box. I have found that it does the opposite of what I expect it to do at times. Also, here is a handy guide I found explaining HD uploading to YouTube. I hope you solve your problem.

Still having issues. I will try the HD 1280x720 16:9 export size next. Still am having the same "pillar boxed" issues. I am still open for more ideas.

What is your timeline setting? What codec are your source files in? Have you tried exporting to QuickTime first (e.g. to ProRes) and then to export from QuickTime player?

Floh,

Haven't tried that yet. All timelines for all programs are 16:9, typically ProRes HQ, SD 16:9. One program was in HD. I have found if I export the files out of M100 as 1280x720 16:9 HD they come out wider than if we do 1280x720 16:9. I am wondering if the file is tagged in M100, through the H.264 codec as not being true 16:9? I will try the export to QT and then out of QT Pro to see what happens.
Please go to YouTube jjorstad13 and you will clearly see the difference between the HD and SD exports out of M100. In all cases 16:9 was chosen. Thanks Flo, and to others to help sort this out.

Floh et al,

My current export is from a timeline in M100 that is NTSC 601 16:9. I tried the QT export as you suggested by the size is over the 2GB YouTube limit. Advice is welcome.

Hmmm, I thought you said you wanted to export 720p footage? If you use SD 16:9 footage, you can get into trouble with aspect ratios.
For SD 16:9 footage, export as by ref or self contained, and open the resulting clip in QuickTime Player Pro. Set the size to 864*486 NTSC or 1024*576 for PAL (in the extended settings, Command-J). Then export as H264 using the current image size. This should give you a widescreen clip with a nice quality, that you should be able to upload to YouTube.
Or export as a DV stream in 16:9 from Media 100; this should be fine for YouTube also.

Floh,

Thanks for the guidance. I went through QTPro and it worked just fine. I will continue to tweak as per your suggestion with M100. I have to admit it takes a bit of experimenting, however your guidance has been the best I've received to date! Thanks for your extra efforts in responding to these M100 questions. I really appreciate it, as I'm sure others do!
