    how to export 4096x4096 VR with moderate bitrate?

    stevebransford

      I have a 4096x4096 59.94fps VR Over-Under sequence in Premiere that I'm trying to export to play in the new Lenovo Mirage Solo standalone VR headset. The Mirage can handle up to 4096x4096 resolution, so I'd like to export at that resolution to maintain the highest quality. The problem is that there are frame size restrictions for exporting H.264 (the highest resolution Premiere/Media Encoder allows me is 2304x2304). HEVC H.265 allows for higher frame sizes, but the Mirage can't seem to play back H.265 even at relatively low bitrates. I tried doing Quicktime exports via ProRes proxy but got files with huge data rates that couldn't be played in the Mirage. Any recommendations for how to export (not in HEVC) a 4096x4096 59.94fps VR Over-Under sequence that can result in a moderate bitrate (maybe in the 20Mbps range)? Is there a way to export a Quicktime MP4 file that isn't encoded with H.264? Thanks for any help folks can provide.
