peter’s 4k youtube ame preset

Built in Adobe Media Encoder, on Mac load preset file into Library > Preferences > Adobe > Common > AME > 7.0 > Presets

click to download 4K AME preset

click to download 4K AME preset

I recommend conforming any alternate 4K or 5K formats to a 3840×2160 23.976 timeline in Adobe Premiere prior to YouTube upload.

This is a tried and true 4K upload preset that you can see everyday working examples on http://www.youtube.com/YouTubeNation

No, this is not a VP9 preset.  It futureprooofs your content to be flagged as 4K so as VP9 encoding kicks in retroactively you’re all set.

***UPDATE***

Here’s a screengrab of the settings in case you are using an older version of AME

hd time lapse innovation

A friend of mine linked to this video in her Facebook status.  Wow.

It’s so awesome to see different ways time lapse photography is being integrated into HD video.  How cool is the internet, giving us access to great sites like Vimeo and YouTube that host this stuff.  For free.  In HD.

And I didn’t post this HD time lapse last time so, in the spirit of saving the best of the best for a follow up blog post, check this out.

Simply stunningly amazing.  Thank you Till Credner.

blog bomb – youtube in HD

OK, apparently YouTube read my latest blog post.  Thanks guys!

But, my brother Jon gets the credit for this one.  Here’s a cut and paste from the Salvia family email chain that rattled cages earlier today.  Jon writes:

FYI, I received a comment on the RNR YouTube page for one of the Donavon Frankenreiter videos. The commenter wrote that the video looked great in HD 720p. I tried watching the same video in High Quality and, well, it didn’t look like HD. After doing some Googling I came across this article from November 20th…http://www.downloadsquad.com/2008/11/20/youtube-experimenting-with-720p-hd-video/

Here’s the Donavon video that received the comment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VM176Qgzcv0

So test this out. First start watching the vid in Normal Quality. Next start watching the vid in High Quality. To watch the video in HD, the commenter provided this code <&fmt=22> to add to the end of the URL.

YouTube is very quietly testing 720p HD. This is huge.

Dammit Jon, why did you get to be the first one to hear about this!  I’m the older brother, WTF?!  Oh, and Jon also wants me to be sure to let you know that stereo audio is enabled, too.

Anywho, we’re all winners.  Just upload your 1280×720 3-5mbps h.264 128kbps AAC audio quicktime to Vimeo, YouTube, and Motionbox for the most efficient distribution of your HD content.  Then once YouTube processes your video, just add &fmt=22 to the end of the url and enjoy!

motionbox

Wait, what’s Motionbox, you ask?  Could be the next blog bomb here at proactively.  For now, put on your steel tipped shoes then check out the link here cause you’ll be tippy-toeing the cutting edge yet again.

In the meantime, here’s a few Salvia Bros. productions in glorious YouTube HD for your viewing pleasure:

***UPDATE***

For those of you who’ve made it this far, here’s a bonus round: embed youtube HD movies.  Jon’s got the scoop again:

Add &ap=%2526fmt%3D22 to the “value” of the object’s movie parameter and the embed “src” paramater. Looks HD to me but loads very, very slowly. Also, the YouTube embed is still the same 4:3 ratio size. Letterbox bars are included. However, once in full screen it becomes apparent, I think. Try it out for
yourselves.

And not to put his journalistic integrity integrity into question, Jon cited his source to boot.

So lets see some HD YouTube embeds of 5dmarkii footage, Canon HV20 & HV30 footage, Nikon D90 footage, RED One footage!  If you got something hot, post it in the comments!

youtube – widescreen!

Happy Turkey Day from Youtube, 16×9 widescreen is now the default viewing experience.  Here’s an embed of the In Studio show my brother Jon produces for 103 WRNR in Annapolis, MD.

Embeds are still letterboxed but if you check out this video on YouTube’s site you will see it displayed in its native 16×9 widescreen glory. Note, I am embedding the high quality version by adding “&fmt=18” to the tail of the video’s YouTube url.

The footage is captured on Canon HV20, HV30, and HF10 cameras as available (thanks again Mike the Mailman!).  Shot with a 23.98 frame rate and edited as a multiclip sequence in Final Cut Pro, the key to taking advantage of YouTube’s new widescreen presentation is choosing the appropriate Compressor export setting:

compressor-iphone-640x480

Name: H.264 for iPod video and iPhone 640×480
Description: H.264 video @ 1500 kbps, progressive, multi-pass. Audio is 44.1 kHz, stereo

Or if you wanted to be super efficient, you could use this setting…

compressor-apple-tv

…and upload the same compression to YouTube and Vimeo.

So WTG YouTube, now can we get 720p already?

FCProse Episode 4 – cut color compress 5dmarkii footage

Here’s the all-in-one video tutorial showing you how to cut, color, and compress 1080p video captured with Canon’s upcoming 5D Mark II Digital SLR with three Final Cut Studio 2 applications: Final Cut Pro, Color, and Compressor. I recommend clicking thru for the hd version to better see the application interfaces.

In this episode I walk through the steps to edit your footage in Final Cut Pro, perform a broadcast safe grade in Color, and then make a web compression for upload to YouTube and Vimeo using Compressor.

I work directly with the source H.264 video Vincent Laforet made available for download (no H.264 -> Apple ProRes 422 transcode this time around). I also discuss some system specs and rant about High Dynamic Range video. A quick tag surf lead me to this post that has an example of HDR video captured by something called the HDRC® MDC04 CL camera system.

What’s High Dynamic Range (HDR), you ask? Check out yet another Chad Richard HDR timelapse (click thru for the full HD effect):

Mr. Richard has done a lot of heavy lifting to convert a series of HDR stills into 1080p video (and then compress for Vimeo, of course). Check out his tutorial for this process here.

We’re at the forefront of a paradigm shift where digital photography and high definition video are converging. Check out Romy Ocon‘s 5dmkii bird photography, err, video:

Right now is an exciting, exciting time.

Dr. Horrible & The Guild

So my good friends Joel & Katie sent me a link to a new Joss Whedon production called Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog“, posted with vodpod

And then during the first sing along I recognized Dr. Horrible’s love interest from this series I’ve only seen on YouTube called the Guild. Watch all of these they are sooooooo worth it.

YouTube HQ Video Comparison

Just stumbled across Editing Organazized and found this enlightening post:

To make YouTube content work on non Flash-based devices (AppleTV, iPhone), recent videos are available in higher-quality, non Flash versions.

To view higher quality MP4 (H.264) versions of videos, add ‘&fmt=18′ to the end of the address.

So here’s a comparison test embed of Jose Gonzalez posted with the Compressor 3 iPhone setting:

Default

with the additional code &fmt=18

Credits:

Jon Salvia ……………….. Camera Producer

Salvatore Salvia ……….. Camera

Peter Salvia ……………… Cuts Color Compression

Quoting Rory’s immediate, professional, knee jerk opinion:

Hey, I think the top one looks better. No wait, yeah, I can see the difference. But not much.

Thanks for the blog cameo Mr. Sheridan. And thanks Editing Organazized for the awesome and informative post.
