TOPIC: Export setting for YouTube

Export setting for YouTube 3 years ago #16249

Hello, just made my first movie and I really love your program! But... I'm also searching for hours now for a correct youtube export format! Now trying with a convertion of a export but with no luck so far.

Wouldn't it be great to have a preconfigured youtube-export setting?

Greetings,
Frank

For some people it would be fantastic, I would prefer those users learn how to encode it properly but I can see the draw.

I think LWfF's reply was semi sarcastic. "No", Lightworks is a professional tool that shouldn't have anything to do with YouTube. But to expand, Lightworks is an editing tool, not an all purpose editing, compositing, trasncoding, DVD/BD burning tool. Most other Pro/Semi-Pro NLE's have been moving in that direction seeing how video production is now within the grasp of anyone and with the video quality of consumer camcorders and HDSLR's almost matching that of professional equipment. They see the needs of professionals and "hobbyists" blurring so they think their software should also blend these needs. But is that what Lightworks should aspire to? LWfF says "no", and I say no also. There are so many ways to get your video transcoded to DVD/BD, YouTube, or any other format using open source or low cost stand alone programs that adding this bloat to Lightworks might hinder (even slightly) it's ability to do it's main function, editing. If Editshare wants to create another program that can handle this all purpose transcoding function and ship it with Lightworks, I'm all for it, but it doesn't need to be built into the core of Lightworks where it's just taking up resources on those users computers that don't need it. Let's concentrate on making Lightworks the best "non linear editor" available and leave those processes that are used after you've completed your edit and rendered out a lossless or near lossless Master to other applications.

@Khaver

I think you've summed it up very nicely.

In it's purest form (and this is exactly how NLEs started) the "edit" is a list of cuts, each referenced to a relative time from the start of the edit, and with references to the source material. An EDL, in other words. There's no harm in NLEs having more features than this, as long as the focus on editing itself isn't lost, and as long as the "companion" activities, like transcoding, authoring etc don't take development and support resources away from the core program.

With so many other "editing" programs available, most of which are positioned at the low end, it is understandable that people should come to Lightworks thinking that it should have all of these "peripheral" capabilities. But the reason for Lightworks' greatness is precisely that it is so focussed on the edit itself.

Re: Export setting for YouTube 3 years ago #16257

OK, so let's rethink my initial question/problem...

Would it be possible to add some extra output codecs so the exported files are smaller and easier to send to youtube and/or directly to the customer for a preview?

Apparantly the problem with youtube seems to be the codec: www.lightworksbeta.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=23&id=7130&Itemid=269

What you want is h.264 video with AAC audio export settings with maybe a youtube quality preset (12 to 15mbps).

Amen! I hope it stays that way too.

One export function I'd truly like to see integrated into Lightworks is a frame server. To local dummy files and to network streams, with 8,10,16 bit capability. Shouldn't be too hard to implement since it's similar to exporting to image sequences, which Lightworks is already capable of.

How about something like MeGUI with the MyMP4Box UI plugin. Both are free and open source and overcomes the issue of having to use command lines to produce say for example Flashplayer compatible files. Moov header data is correctly placed for Progressive Streaming.

Just a thought

A frame server is not on encoder. It just sends out each frame and audio on demand to an external encoding program by creating a dummy file that links Lightworks to the encoding program. The encoding program thinks it's reading an AVI file but in actuality it's being fed the video frames and audio directly from your Lightworks timeline. This would allow you to use any transcoding program that can accept the dummy AVI file.

The network stream aspect would allow programs on other computer(s) in your network (render farm) to access the frames and audio in order to encode to output formats.

Once Lightworks goes open source, the open source frame server by DebugMode could probably be integrated.

I wanted to answer this old thread, since it pops up when people search for help on You Tube export.

Lightworks is great for small projects like Youtube clips.

To make Youtube happy, keep the following in mind:

Your project should be short (<30 minutes)
Your project should be small in size (< 2 Gb)
Your project should be in 4:3 to fit the Youtube player

With these in mind, use the following settings for Lightworks:

Format ---> Choose DVD
Container ---> MPG
Compression ---> MPEG
Frame Rate ---> 25 fps
Size ---> D1 720x576
Aspect Ratio ---> 4:3
Display Optimization ---> Frames

Have fun and go viral!

For what it's worth, 11.5 has direct export to YouTube format, including optional upload.

Where can I find 11.5 since the beta is only at 11.1.1.R?
