How to export an H264 video with 2-Pass conversion and Wave audio?

Mar 31, 2013 1:48 PM

Tags: #export #h264 #wave

"QuickTime" format allows you to export an H264 with wave audio, but with a single pass conversion.

"H264" format allows you to choose the 2-Pass VBR compression, but force you to use the AAC codec for the audio.

Is there any way to export a video using the H264 codec with a 2-Pass VBR compression, without compressing the audio?

    MXF is the only way you'll get Uncompressed with H.264.  It is Master quality, you don't really need two pass.

     

    What resolution is the original?

    It is possible that Sorenson might have a solution.

     

    It's worth checking, just in case.

    Since it is a DSRL video

     

    That would be 1920 x 1080 original cropped to 1920 x 800.  My recommendation would be to just use the MXF format and accept the attendant black bars.  It'll give you all the quality you need at reasonable file sizes.  I can suggest a method to lose the black bars and keep the quality, but the file size will go up.

    Nope, if that works for you, go with it.
