Hi guys and girls.
So I'm not very technically minded and my knowledge of all things video, editing and computers is pretty simple, but I'm completely stuck here!
The issue is that my final rendered/exported videos look fine, and play fine. However when I upload them to youtube, the videos 'stutter' for lack of a better word.
Panning doesn't look so smooth at all.
I will post a link here to a short video where I hope its easy for you to see what I mean.
That video was not edited at all, its raw camera footage uploaded straight to youtube.
Specs and stuff:
My camera (a Panasonic HC-W850).
All my footage is 1080p mp4 format at 50 frames per second. (The camera displays 1080 50m, but youtube says 50p) confusing....
I usually use Serif movieplus x6 to edit however that program limits me to 20,000 with the bitrate when exporting (my cameras raw footage bitrate is around 45000.
So I've been using Adobe Premiere Elements trial version and have better looking exports with that as I can export at the exact same bitrate as my raw footage.
I generally keep my export settings as close as possible to the raw footage. So I keep the frame rate at 50, I set the bit rate to variable 2 pass (because I was told this is better). I'll set target bit rate to whatever the raw footage is and the max bit rate to a bit higher.
The final export looks and plays great. Its smooth with no stutter or jerky looking movement.
The problem only begins when I upload to youtube!
So guys please help! Is it that I'm doing something wrong and uploading in the wrong format?
I have tried uploading the same video 3 times. Once the raw footage, Once the Serif movieplus export and Once the Adobe Premiere Elements export, and ALL uploads suffer the same stuttering playback.
So finally, here is the link to the video I have uploaded in the hope you guys can see what I'm on about and help me find a fix!
This footage was my raw camera footage, uploaded to youtube on my laptop and youtube displays it as 1080 50p or 720 50p.
It doesn't look as bad on my iPhone, but I guess that's because its a smaller screen!
On my Hp Pavilion laptop which has a 1080p screen, it looks quite noticeable.
