My footage was recorded in 720p, 60p, 11Mbps. The content are interviews.
a) Now I intend to render by using MainConcept AVC/MP4 and the preset “Internet HD 720p”. In this preset the average (bps) is 8Mbps and maximum is set to 16Mbps. But since my original footage is 11Mbps, it seems logical to set the maximum bit rate to 11Mbps. Am I right about that? Or is there any parameter/procedure that I should be aware when setting the maximum bit rate?
b) By downsizing from 11Mbps to 8Mbps (average) is something to be concerned in terms of quality loss?
Thank you in advance,
