Have you tried the H.264 option for a Quicktime (Share/Computer/Quicktime) file rather than an MPEG?
Yes I have tried the Quicktime option. It works, but the quality of the video appears to be clearly superior with the MPEG option. Does this surprise you?
Will Elements 9.0 offer this in the future? Do you know of any programs that do?
Have a look at this link.
I am quoting the solution from another user who faced the similar problem:
"Trying to follow the recommended compression settings for Vimeo is a little hard with Elements. Here's the ones I used that finally worked. This with FHD video from my hacked GF-1 at the highest settings in pTool. The result on Vimeo is pretty good...although the file size is large. Obviously if you are USA based you need to change from the PAL settings.
Select MPEG. from the share panel
Preset MPEG2 1920x108i 25 (for PAL)
Quality 4, Upper Dolby Digital, 192,48 kHz VBR, 1 Pass, Min 18.00, Target 25.00, Max 30 Mbps
This from source file as FHD 1920x1080,25 fps, 48000 Hz Stereo.
Might be usful for any body else using Vimeo"
Thanks for the feedback.
Yes I did try those settings and they do work; however, the video quality of the H.264 mpeg-4 codec appears noticeably better than the mpeg-2 codec. Is this to be expected?...or should they be equal?
