Hi Guys,

New to the forum and really need some help, here is what I am trying to do. I am trying to make video's for my new web site with my Panasonic HSC-SD9 and host them on Youtube in HD.

I have had tons of problems.

I have took the video's on the Panasonic's HX recording mode which I'm sure its 9 MBPS. I then opened adobe Premiere CS4 to edit the video's.

Below are the settings I had Premiere at when I edited my video's:

General
Editing mode: AVCHD 1080p square pixel
Timebase: 25.00fps

Video Settings
Frame size: 1920h 1080v (1.0000)
Frame rate: 25.00 frames/second
Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square Pixels (1.0)
Fields: No Fields (Progressive Scan)

Audio Settings
Sample rate: 48000 samples/second

Default Sequence
Total video tracks: 3
Master track type: Stereo
Mono tracks: 0
Stereo tracks: 3
5.1 tracks: 0
Submix mono tracks: 0
Submix stereo tracks: 0
Submix 5.1 tracks: 0

The only problem I had at this point was the video was very jerky, but the main problem I am having is I don't have a clue what would be the best format to export it in so I can upload it to Youtube HD. There are so many different formats on Adobe Premiere CS4 that I don't know where to start.

If any of you guys can help out with what would be the best format to export in that would be a big help or even if you can let me know if I have went wrong anywhere else.

Thanks,
Kerri

On the weekend I rendered and posted a video to YouTube and got a great result. My source files were Canon HDV's. I use PPro CS3, set the project up as HD but in the 720 size - and then rendered to the H264 option. Actually, I tried mpeg first and it was REALLY bad, then tried the H264. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPRmlPpsVeI

Wow, great quality Bruce, even at full screen.
Did you change any of the default H264 settings in the Adobe Media Encoder?

This says a lot for sticking with a format that is native to Premiere.
The conversion is so much cleaner that way, nice job.
