Hi guys,


I got a question about encoding timelapse footage.


Usually I render my edited timelapse film with adobe premiere pro to an h.264 encode format in 4K res. Resolution and everything is great on my the PC, but uploading it to YouTube or Vimeo makes the quality very very bad due to the compression.

I have seen great and sharp quality timelapse videos on youtube and vimeo, but I have no idea how they get that result... Some kind of encoding program may be the solution?

Need some advice on shootinga short video in a low-light bar and pub. I have a Cannon XF-105 HD Camera, what would be the best setting, ideally? Any lighting techniques? There will be talking heads and I'll have them on wireless mics - talk show feel. Any advice would be amazing, thank you. It's been a long time since I've shot - cheers!

We all love to make video, right? Either as a hobby for fun, a business for income or a documentary for a cause. But once you're finished with your masterpiece, it's not finished until someone views it. So how do you get your audience?

There are many places to share your video, do you use YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion or something else? Are there any tips you would like to share to make the process easier for those who are new to the video sharing game? What are the methods you use to get your message out there for all to see?

Please let us know.
