I was going to upload some stock footage to Pond5, and noticed that they prefered motion-jpegA. The quicktime presets in AME are limited to standard def, and I don't know if changing the size (px by px) would make it true high definition. I was wondering if someone could tell me how to set up a preset to export full hd (1920x1080 progressive scan) from adobe media encoder, or if this means I need to buy quicktime pro or something to actually get those capabilities.
P.S. I have used MPEGstreamclip to do some of the files, but I really want to be able to export this from premiere through AME, I don't really want to have to compress the videos twice.
...and I don't know if changing the size (px by px) would make it true high definition.
While there are other technical facets to it, the primary differentiating factor between standard definition and high definition is frame size. So, yes, changing the pixel dimensions to 1920x1080 with square pixels will give you "true high definition." Set your frame rate and field order as necessary according to your footage, and select MJPEG from the codec dropdown. There is no need to change any of the other codec options. Use the Quality slider to set the compression level; this may take some experimentation to find the sweet spot. Setting Quality to 100 is going to create a massive, unwieldy file; lower Quality settings will decrease the file size, but you will need to find the minimum you can go to and maintain an acceptable image. This will vary based on the content, largely.
Thankyou for the info, I just adjusted the dimensions and changed the aspect to Square Pixels (1.0) to match my footage. Turned out great, left the quality and 90 because the files are going to be used as stock footage, and they're just 30 second clips.
Once again, thankyou for you help.
