I am not surprised!
You got a ot going on there in the differences between source and export
Frame rate : PAL to NTSC...
Square pixel to rectangular
WHy did you choose those settings?
Did source footage match the project settings?
Thanks for the speedy reply, shootemz. I had no control over the source footage unfortunately and the video needs to be uploaded to a private Youtube channel, so I just selected the Youtube preset from the Export Settings section - and Youtube seems to have a sad every time I try to upload anything that isn't 29.97fps so that's the one I chose.
So all of the things you mentioned increase the encoding time? I didn't know that! I am new to this type of export. It's always been very straight forward in my past jobs. I guess I will play around with the settings and see if I can keep them as close to the source as possible. Thanks for the reply! If anyone else has any other suggestions I would love to hear them also.
Sounds like random settings choice issue!
what are the source files?
what was the sequence setting?
Thanks very much for taking the time to help! It's very appreciated!
There are 2 sets of source videos:
Canon T2i: 1920x1080 @ 23.976fps
Canon HD CMOS: 1440x1080 @ 25fps
And one source audio file:
Zoom H1: 44100 Hz 24-bit Stereo
You still got a lot going on there with mixed media, fx, warp stab. etc...but I cant see anyway around it in your case.
That's alright, cheers for the help!
At least now I know I should create some guidelines for clients for recording footage.
