I'm trying to compress my videos to get them on to youtube with Premiere 6.5. I'm editing miniDV footage which is about 13g for an hour. I'm only trying to put 3.5 to 4.5 minute videos but they're still way too large. What settings should I use so that the audio still synchs up with my video once youtube processes it and so that my video qualitiy's not complete crap. Thanks
Kenneth - Cool intros! However the footage looks very choppy? What was the Frame Rate set to during compression? It should be 29.97 fps
For UTube footage I would make a few tweaks to the settings in the tutorial link Joe provided. Bump up the bit rate to 500 Kbps and use the video codec = Windows Media Video 9 since they will re-compress it anyways.
For wakepics keep the codec at ISO MPEG-4 Video or Windows Media Video V8 to allow a wider audience to watch your videos.
at the 4 second mark... How did you do that effect. I'm thinking you exported the frame screen shot and edited the background out in Photoshop. Imported the new photoshop file into the time line and did a slow gain in size?
