    Best Setting / Compression for After Effects cc > iMovie 10 > YouTube?

    markdouglasgrant

      After Effects novice. Using a photo gallery template from videohive.net.

       

      Exported at default setting, lossless HD 1080. The clip is :42 and over 5 GB, which I assume is too big to work with in iMovie. Very choppy preview.

       

      So, what setting should I choose for After Effects export? Knowing the :42 clip will be imported into iMovie, combined with 1:20 HD 1080 additional footage (from goanimate.com) then posted on YouTube?

       

      Or should I edit in iMovie using the large 5 GB After Effects clip then compress for YouTube only when finished editing the entire video?

       

      (I would like to keep it widescreen with no bars.)

       

      Thank you.
