Betreff: I have a problem with the quality of my video when I edit after export

The problem is with your export settings.  It's not enough to say "I'm exporting at 1080P @ 60FPS"  You also need to take into account the codec you are using and the bit rate you are using.

 

For instance if you are using a preset for youtube that's built in, already you are using a lower quality codec that youtube can compress more easily and quickly.  The presets usually aren't there to give you the optimal quality for the service but instead give you the optimal processing speed for uploading.  

 

Once your video has been saved, YouTube will still try to compress your clip again using it's own algorithems and this will reduce your quality even further.

 

Your best bet is to select export at the highest quality you can with a high bit rate.  Depending on your video editor, you will be best served by looking at the forums belonging to that video editor to find the best settings for your project.

Check your  editor, see if you got the  render set up correctly, if you are  shooting 4K footage, make sure you  have the 4K footage, by checking the properties, you can be on LRV files, never know. we all simply make mistakes.

Hi @activetree716,,

 

 

Check your export settings.

There might be some settings that affects the quality of the exported videos.

Betreff: I have a problem with the quality of my video when I edit after export

I have exactly the same problem! I film with 1080 60fps.

I edit with Davincci Resolve 15.

 

The video turns really bad when I export to youtube.

The only possibility to get super image after export is using high resolution, but then the file is gigantic and I can not share.

 

I tried even 1st exporting to high quality and then importing the high quality in a new timeline and exporting again, unfortunatelly with no success!

 

What can be happening?

I would really appreciate some help because it is very disapointing to film super viedos and then getting bad exports.

 

 

Regards,

Ricardo
