In this article, we’ll discuss the proper settings for your exports that will fit the video requirements we have at Stocksy. Making sure we have our graded and ungraded clips delivered in a high-quality format is vital for our portfolio and ultimately the client’s appeal and expectations.
We’ll learn how to export a high-quality H.264 video with the right bitrate, how to deliver a high-resolution ungraded clip that can be further graded by our clients, and how to re-use our render settings for further usage for an efficient workflow.
And don’t forget, that as with everything in life, practice does make perfect, so the more you do it, the more your eyes will train to analyze and recognize what needs to be fixed in your footage.
Here is what we’ll cover:
- H.264 — the most popular codecs of all
- Bitrate target values — setting the proper bitrate according to the resolutions
- Render settings — selecting the correct render export parameters
- Saving presets — re-using render settings as presets for later use
- Exporting log — correct export settings for ungraded log footage
- Third-party encoders — options for Windows users (Shutter Encoder)
