Tutorial Recording Notes:

Disclaimer: these are the actual notes I used to record this video and are written in a language you may or may not understand. Hopefully, you find them useful or cool.

  1. Very quickly explain the source frame rate, frame size, and frame rate and frame size of the sequence and how that comports with what we want to think about while we export our video projects.
  2. This tutorial will assume you have shot your footage in at least standard HD, 1080p frame size.
  3. Set In/Out Points
  4. Show the YouTube 1080p preset
  5. YouTube recommended page: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/1722171?hl=en
  6. Don’t want to use uncompressed video unless you’re going to be using the video you’re exporting in other video projects (like exporting an intro or outro that you’ll use in your video projects)
  7. Explain the different areas with sizing, quality settings, bit rate, maximum render qualities, etc…
  8. CBR vs VBR constant being the same bitrate as specified for every single scene. Variable tries to pick out which scenes have more moving objects, blurs, detailed edges, etc… and allot more bitrate for those scenes while saving bitrate on scenes that it thinks don’t need as much. This is a pretty fast way to render, but you are at the mercy of the machine. Still, not a bad way to go for most projects. VBR two pass will pass over the video twice and do a much better job of picking out where the video can both save file size by reducing bitrate and increase the quality in scenes that need it by increasing the bitrate of those scenes. The down side? It’s two pass, so it takes roughly 2x as long to render.
  9. Audio settings
  10. Save the video settings as a preset in the dialog
  11. Show how to ship off a video to AME when you want to export multiple
  12. Videos
  13. Show a video exported at 3Mbps vs one at 16 or 32Mbps
