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?


Render Settings for YouTube

Time for a Render Bender!

Render settings vary from project to project, client to client, and enthusiast to professional in some cases. So, if a video’s final destination is YouTube, as it is for, what are the recommended best settings when rendering a video?

Hi all,

I'd like to ask your knowledge and advice here.

I shoot some travel videos, and recently found that some of my, as well as dozens of other's, videos were swiped on youtube by some scheister, who then re-edited them, threw his own name over them and re-uploaded them as his own.

 It takes someone with a lower double-digit IQ (not to mention a real pair of brass ones) to do that and upload them next to the same person you just ripped off - and think nobody is going to notice or care. Needless to say enough people complained that his account was killed.

Superman with a GoPro...need we say more?
