Exporting Footage: How do I get the Best Quality?
I have a somewhat broad but nonetheless nagging question to ask. What is the best format/settings to export a final video to be used for high quality playback?
For example If I have some 1080P HD footage that I want to export for playback on a computer (to be played on a DLP projector). What is the best format to preserve all of the quality but still be playable? Formats like apple animation preserve quality but will bog down almost any machine.
Specifically I use Adobe media encoder but I am up for any suggestions of other software.
This is what I am currently outputting all my video as:
Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Field Order: Progressive
Pixel Aspect: Square
Bitrate Encoding: VBR, 1 Pass
Target Bitrate [Mbs]: 7
Maximum Bitrate [Mbs]:8
Keyframe Distance: 24
I look forward to all of your input,
I think your preset is just fine. I would only change “Bitrate Encoding: VBR, 1 Pass” to 2 Pass, it really improves your video and “Keyframe Distance: 24″ to1.
