I'm new to Adobe Premiere Elements. I want to publish HD movies on Youtube in the best possible format. My movies are in Quicktime 1280x720 HD format. Normally I published my movies without any editting application, because I did not wanted any quality loss.
However it would be great todo some cutting, and add some banners, etc.
Which format and which settings should I use in Premiere Elements 7 to create the best possible movies. The best result I got was using MPEG2 HD 720p 20 preset. De quality seems to decrease not too mutch, but the filesize multiplies about 3 times (1.1 GB for a 400 Mb file). Are there other options?
The standard Youtube preset only exports 320x240 (The quality dropdown is disabled)
There's a FAQ (How can I get the best quality video on YouTube) on this topic which works nicely.
(Don't know how to paste a link in this reply...)
My post from 2004 is outdated (and would better be deleted); following the post from John Cloudman (Dec 2008) should do the trick.
Thank you all, I missed that post with the search. I'am now creating a file with these options and will examine the results. It takes a little while. Probably the 100 percent option is not the most perfect solution to preserve diskspace :-)
