How do I keep my video quality when uploading? If you’re watching this video, hopefully, it’s because you want to post the highest quality videos that you possibly can. Maybe you’re tired of your footage looking so beautiful and crisp UNTIL you hit Export or Upload. There are a few tricks to working around the compression algorithms of sites like YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook and Instagram, but in order to do this, we need a more in-depth understanding of what exporting is, and how to choose the best settings for exporting a video in Adobe Premiere Pro. This is all going to start, at the end - there are a ton of variables when it comes to exporting, and different options with each file type. So let’s go through each step of this process. The two most common video formats are H.264 which is an .mp4 file, or Quicktime which is a .MOV file. For most streaming services like YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo and exporting video drafts, we are going with H.264. Don't forget to select Render Maximum Depth, as well as Render with Maximum Quality. PERFORMANCE: HARDWARE is a very fast and powerful encoding but SOFTWARE encoding is far more consistent and produces higher quality. When we are working with such high-quality video files now, we are best to stick with the HIGH Profile. LEVELS Our levels are like presets, they are set to help guide our processing - according to our desired file size and bitrate. Notice that as you change this, it will change the size of your video. Now that we understand how large our bitrate should be, let’s discuss the different ways that it processes. Under out BITRATE SETTINGS, We have 3 options here: CBR - CONSTANT BIT RATE 100BMPS (80,60) It will be a MASSIVE file It will be compressed by youtube VBR 2PASS is Recommended Target will be AVG Bits Per S Max is for the intense scenes For 4K Exports set 60 Target, 100 Max - Exporting AUDIO in Premiere Pro AAC is the most universal encoding, so let’s make sure that it is selected. Click on “info” Most Camera Mics record in 41000 or 48000 Hz in Stereo Make sure your audio quality is HIGH, because there is a minuscule difference in file size if any. And then 320BIT audio will be plenty - most songs that we stream are on 128 Spotify 160, Soundcloud 64-128 so 320 will be great. QUEUE vs EXPORT Adobe Media Encoder is amazing for making multiple versions of our export and we can still use Adobe Premiere to edit while Media Encoder Exports, but Exporting from Premiere goes a bit faster.
This is exactly what I needed, just finished editing an 1h 24min video i did for a dj of his mix and all export sizes were around 80gb 🤦♂️ with this i went down to 24gb and went from 4h export time down to 2h.
So i'm willing to buy a software like this, but I'd much prefer something that's not a monthly fee. Any recommendations?
My goal is to upload quality WAV audio files and 1440p Resolution.
whats the shortcut to pre render on MacBook ?
I want to hug you brother ! Thanks
Is it possible to have an external plug-in or something like that? integrated in a video editor? that makes the rendering better than the original software? I mean let's say and I'll be premiere. pro has its own render, but maybe there is a different plug-in o something like this, that you can integrate into Premier Pro, and make the rendering match, better process in quality and time, is that even possible, or every software has its own one unique and only rendering machine?
Thank you very much for such a detailed explanation of all this. Even though i knew about most of this, i still found out few interesting and very useful tips for myself here and there. Thank you!
I uploaded a 2k video on youtube, but it doesent automatically goes 2k, its just standard hd...
love the fact that you explained what each setting does , Thank you !!
this video was extremely helpful in understanding what all of the different settings mean and why you set them the way that you do. Thank you :)
You saved me hours of crying! 😜 Thanks homie!
Great video! Liked and subbed. Will definatly check out you videos on how to make quick edits for social media since I really want to start making videos on Instagram and Facebook as well. One thing I felt you missed to say in the end is what you showed in the beginning of the video. The preset option in p.pro/ P.Pro rendering. Lets say I go with P.Pros preset of YouTube 4K render, will it be almost like all the settings you choosed here or will it differ a lot? Could I choose the 4K preset and just tweak a couple of settings and then save that as a custom preset?
Bro my Videos have a length of say 3 Hours and 900Mb - takes between 10-30 Hours to render.. usually i render Videos with 900Mb in 10-20min. why is that
Absolutely amazing video Colin! Thanks for this, I really appreciate this and the Render and Export Faster!
Hey Colin, does the Bitrate affect the Rendertime? So higher Bitrate higher Rendertime? Thanks for your Video :)
thanks, such great detail delivered so straightforwardly, i have learnt so much!
Hi how do I export in HD when video clips shot in 4k?
I am exporting for YouTube in HD/4K and seeing some compression when I upload. I am a travel vlogger with a lot of motion in my videos but the pixelated areas are strangely mostly on our faces and bodies, not the surroundings. I am exporting: H.264 format, 3840x2160, 29.97 frame rate, square pixels, render at max depth, VBR 1-2 pass, 80 bitrate, use max render quality. Every single upload I also get stuck in the "HD processing" for days (on 11-15GB files) so it takes a long time to even see that it's compressed and then I have to reupload and wait again. I have a video I've been trying to upload for a week so I am getting backed up on trying to post weekly without sacrificing quality. Any tips for either battling compression in HD/4K and/or getting HD/4K videos to upload faster without sacrificing quality?
I watched a mass of videos on this topic but this guy is so thorough, good job man
