I am using Premiere Elements 4.0 and I would like to create a 720p Flash Video from a 720p input file.
Using the presets, I can create a 720p MPG no problem, but there doesn't seem to be a Flash Video setting higher than 640X480. Is there a way to create a FLV format for HD so that it will show up as HD on You Tube?
The best solution we've found is to output the video as a high-def MP4 and let YouTube re-encode it as a FLV file, per the FAQs to the right of this forum.
You're not going to get any higher quality going from FLV to FLV, since the program will still convert it to its workflow format anyway (AVI or HDV-MPEG) while it's working with it. Besides, the biggest quality issues will appear when YouTube starts screwing with it, which there's no way around.
Give it an H.264 file, and you'll get the best possible results.
This is not answer but a request. please vote on the following issue which is the support for H264 and VPx encoding besides Sorenson. The latter encoder is inefficient and takes more bandwidth to transmit video streams.
