Re: Why this weird pixelation/grain HERO 6

So there are a few things going on here.

First, your video isn't uploading as 4K so the bitrate is getting throttled down by YouTube. I'm not sure what's going on here, but if you rendered the video out as 4K, it should upload as 4K. Use 40 as your bitrate, CBR is fine. I generally select 4K YouTube as the output setting in Premiere (it's the last selection on the list) and then change the bitrate and check off Max Depth and Quality.

Second, the camera is having difficulty as you are moving in and out of shadow causing the highlights to get blown out. There are a few options to try for this.

1)Easiest solution: set the ev to -1 and max ISO to 100. By reducing the ev you will avoid the blowouts from the sun coming through the trees. A lower Max ISO will also help with this and will give you the best video quality. The video will be darker in shadows but you can correct in your editor as needed by bringing up the shadows.

Option #2 - Simple but not best solution (also you will need to take your gloves off): Use the Selective Light Metering option by pressing on the rear LCD until a large white box shrinks into a smaller box. Move the box to the brightest portion of your screen (at the sunlight coming through the trees), choose locked exposure and then press the check mark (if you don't press the check mark it wont save the setting). This will tell the camera to keep the exposure value the same whether you are in shadow or brightness. Negatives are the settings are lost every time the camera shuts down, and you can't control ISO/Shutter/EV. Also, your time in shadows might be a little too dark.

#3 Requires color grading in editor (In Premiere you can just add an adjustment layer): These settings generally work out best: Shutter - Auto, EV -1, ISO Max - 100, WB - Manually set (you can use Auto as well but manual is better), Sharpness - Low (increase in your editor), and Color - Flat.

This is my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSbPHTteAPEFSSAr7UG2FMg/videos?sort=da&view=0&flow=grid

These aren't the best examples as these are all just family videos and I generally don't do a lot of editing or playing with the settings when just filming for fun. When I am filming events or Real Estate for clients is when I spend the time editing and doing camera settings for the best shot. Unfortunately, I cannot share these as they do not technically belong to me.

Re: Why this weird pixelation/grain HERO 6

For clarification, on option #3 the EV is (-1.0) as in Negative One. You need to bring down the highlights to get the most detail and not have the sunlight blow out your shots.

Re: Why this weird pixelation/grain HERO 6

That looks much better to me; however, you can probably benefit from lowering the ev. Even -0.5 should help with the sky getting blown out and wont have much effect on the shadow.
