What is the best format to record in for YouTube? was created by Virdi

Hi all,

I always record in Sony AVCHD 1080 50i and I have always found that this works perfect for Blu-ray.

....but now I have started to put all my videos on to YouTube.

So my question is what should my camera settings be set to?

What’s best for YouTube. Should I avoid 1080 50i and have 25p or 50p?

Thanks

If you have already recorded video using 1080-50i, you can render this in Vegas to 25p and that will work on YouTube.

When you are recording new videos, you can record at 1080-25p or 1080-50p for YouTube and render to the exact same settings your video was recorded with.
For everyday video, most people would still use 1080-25p.
1080-25p is more suited if you like the "film look".

If you are recording fast moving scenes like sport and want to maintain a nice sharp image, 1080-50p is a much better setting to use.
1080-50p also looks more "hyper-real" if you like that look.
:idea: Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.

Fab!

Thank you!

Is it true that 50p needs more work to render?

50p is twice the frame rate of 25p, so yes it requires more time to render.
