Shoot in HD and to be honest, I think I have this project with the wrong sequence settings. Usually, I’m in ProRes 422. Oops. I used Program Stream MPEG-2 setting in Compressor and at first used the default settings. Junkie. Then I increased the Rate Conversion from fast to better and the Deinterlace from fast to better as well. This produced a better picture for sure but certainly not beautiful. The station approved of the test vids I sent so maybe I’m just being overly critical.
Would increasing my bitrate range give me a quantitative improvement of picture quality. Obviously, I’d like to see a noticed improvement compared to the amount of time it would take to compress.
Thanks for all your help as well. I just became a member of the community recently and this is a great resource to have.
