When you make a video file smaller, have you noticed that some parts of your video look better than others? This might be because each scene looks different from the others and need to be compressed in another way. Author Luisa Winters gives you techniques for troubleshooting a video that has spot quality.
- Sometimes making the file size smaller is not good enough.…Some parts of your video will look good,…while others will not.…This is usually because of different looking scenes…in your video.…These scenes will need to be compressed differently…than the other parts of the video.…There are some things that you could do…in production to help you with this.…If you know that you will be compressing…with a GOP compression and variable bitrate…than try to avoid moving shots.…
Moving shots are hard to encode using GOP compression…because the frame changes too much in between eye frames.…In production you could also help yourself…by not having very dark pixels and very bright pixels.…I know that having contrast is a big part…of having a good, clear video.…But we could make the dark parts not so dark…and the bright parts not so bright…to help with the bitrate.…Also if you find that consistently you get poorer quality…on some parts than in others…try to increase your target bitrate and maximum bitrate…and make sure that you are using two passes.…
