I was wondering how to get my videos to look crisp and clear after posting them on the web. I use APP 1.5 to edit and a Sony dcr-trv530 (digital 8) cam. After exporting and uploading to sites such as youtube the video appears very grainy, I have tried to play around with the frame size and aspect ratio but still get the same results. I’ve used youtubes recommended settings (640×480) and still no difference. A few of the videos in the short video contest used the sony dcr-trv730 cam (best senior video, best documentary, best comedy) which is a step above my camera and the video quality is worlds better so I don’t think it is my ancient camera causing the problem. Any suggestions or solutions would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

it’s not the frame size and aspect you need to worry about so much as the codec and bit rate of compression. take a look at a program called super, it will encode very well and has very adjustable parameters.

yes, google super, it’s a free app, and no sorry, I don’t have any suggestions to help you out with Adobe, I don’t use it.

Youtube sucks. Go to exposureroom.com
They allow you to upload a video of any size. And any number of videos. However, I’d hold back from uploading your own “youtube” videos, for example, cats falling asleep, the sneezing panda, that dude who tells people to leave brittney alone. It seems to be a professional environment. So try to upload only serious videos.
As far as settings for your file: I always export my video out of Final Cut Pro to Compressor. Then I select the H.264 codec. Have all the setting at the highest quality. I usually make my video size 320X246

Adobe Prem Pro .. that your using is fine exporter .. you don’t need anything else as well as adobe video encoder all good software .. … I use that all the time exporting to the web .. its the fact that video sizes have to be so compressed to be played on the Internet and quality suffers .. you’ve compressed it once from APP then You Tube have also converted it for play out .. and squished it even more …. and the video quality will suffer with every downgrade … Compression is a pain on video …

so how is it that some videos look clear on youtube? are those users just uploading uncompressed videos?

This may sound silly but I actually use Windows Movie Maker to downcovert pieces made on Adobe Premiere Pro.
Here’s I do it:
1) Export the finished Adobe timeline as a movie.
2) Import that movie into Movie Maker. Be sure to uncheck the automatic clips box.
3) Drag the movie you imported into the Movie Maker timeline or storyboard.
4) Under Finish Movie, click save to my computer.
5) Give it a title and destination and click next.
6) Check “Other Settings” and select “High Quality NTSC” from the drop down menu.
This has given me a good balance between size and quality.
See mascenicmedia.blogspot.com for examples.
