hp z620 dual
Ok, I know this question is been around many many times and places, but I'm still not happy with my final render quality.
Please have a minute to review a couple of rendered videos at splainers.com and let me know about the quality of them in terms of colors and sharpness, (I think they look descent but I've seen other animation videos on vimeo and they look way sharper and nice looking)
So I usually deliver 1920 x 1080 h.264 MP4 videos to the clients and these are the same ones I upload to vimeo.
I work mostly on AE creating animated comp scenes and edit them as well making a final main comp with a 1920 x 1080 comp at 30fps square pixels all the time.
Most of my art assets are created in AI and Ps at 1920 x 1080 as well. All my art assets look nice and sharp and all of them are scale big enough... is usually in AE when I scale them down and never the opposite, but all my final renders seem to loose quality and gain a bit of blurriness.
So if you guys are familiar with these work environment settings, what are your render setting on media encoder? Do you use another rendering software?
again mine is usually:
target bitrate 25
max bitrate 50
render at max depth
use max render quality.
estimated file size at 255mb for a 1 minute 30 sec video.
On another note every time I upload to vimeo it tells me : ----->>
Here are some recommendations:
How do I make my 1920x1080 render with at least 10000 kbit/s?????
I know I don't necessarily need to move my target bitrate and max bitrate to the highest level, but whats is the trick? How do I calculate it?
Anyway, hopefully this makes sense to someone who relates...
Thanks and cheers!
I would use the Vimeo defaults for HD in the Adobe Media Encoder. You can jack up the data rate to the maximum recommended by Vimeo and make sure that Multi Pass rendering is enabled. Then you could save that adjusted setting as a preset.
I would not under any circumstances recommend that you use the Render Cue to render an H.264 movie in any format. Especially avoid H.264 Quicktime because the container is funky, Apple is no longer supporting the format and it just doesn't work very well.
BTW, the standard frame rate for NTSC is 29.97, not 30. All of your comps should be using the standard presets. If you see Custom in the comp settings then you really need to make sure that you know exactly what you are doing and why you are doing it.
Thanks Rick, will give it a try. I am currently researching about frame rates, I do like to know what I am doing.
