    Best render settings for DSLR footage - Thoughts?


      Hello everyone,


      So I have been into Premiere for a while now, not too long, but I know the program pretty good. However, I don't feel like my footage come out as crisp as a lot of other footage out there on the internet.

      For example, I have a project right now which I have tried to render out with a really high bitrate to maximize the quality. Here's a link to the project on Vimeo https://vimeo.com/71570087 password: Adobe


      I shot this with my Canon 6D, Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC (great lens btw) and a Sandisk 32gb 95mpbs card.


      Raw-file specs:



      All-I (and not IPB)


      Current render settings:


      VBR 2 pass

      Target bitrate: 20mpbs

      Maximum bitrate: 30mbps


      I kinda like the 2.35:1 aspect ratio and felt like it would be fun to try it on this project. I do know that I should match my render settings to the raw files and not bumping it up to 1080p, but I wanted to give it a try.


      So, what settings do you suggest? File size is not a problem at all. Also, the natural lightning during the shoot varied a lot so therefore the shadows are different between the clips.
