The drone shot in 4k. But you then edited in 1080p 60 but then exported from the editor in 4k 60fps?

First of all you will not win with YT codec. It messing and breaking my video everytime I upload. The good advice is to record in 2,7K/4K and render to 1080. Look at my video here:
It some kind of madness. When I watch it at my PC from oryginal file is beauty clean sharp just awseome.......but after upload to YT looks like it looks.....many artefacts.....
BTW: Bitrate is very important - your source video has ~ 45Mbits, YT downsizing it to ~ 12 Mbits.....loosing all important data in the middle of time.....especially will see in fast moves, gradients, trees.....

same issue here. Just stunning quality on the main file and even the file FCPX exports but then just crap on YT.
I dont understand where to change the bitrate? Here is my process
Files are now recorded in 2k. Editing done in 2k. Export a master file in FCPX. Ive tried vieo codec H264 and Apple Pro res and Apple Pro Res HQ. Resolution is 4000x3000 (2K) Open with QT player. the H264 file was under 1gb. The Pro res files was 4.6gb!
Uploaded the (excellent quality files) from the PRo res and H264 file to YT but both looks yuck! I mean not awful but swimming pixels everywhere!

Correct. Filmed in 4K/60fps. Edited with a 1080p/60 (technically 59.94fps), and then exported as 4K/60fps with 65Mbs single pass (on really important projects where I will distribute the video, not just post on YouTube, then I use 2 pass with target usually 65Mbs and Max 78Mbs).

Akways . thanks
Here is a basic chart that youtube
Just some info
H.264 is the codec used by most of YouTube’s video streams right now, but there are also other codecs in use such as VP8. Some codecs are still in use for compatibility with older cellphones, and newer codecs such as VP9, are used to deliver 4K content
hope you find hte answers that are out there
