    Hi guys!

    in this video I want to answer a question that I read many times in the comments section under my Dji Phantom 3 Advanced / Standard videos.

    The question is: "What are the best export settings in Adobe Premiere?"

    Well, keep in mind that this is relative because Youtube has a bitrate that does not go above 15mbps, so it is useless to set a very high value, but in this tutorial I show the best compromise in terms of video quality and file size.

    Note that if you want the best compromise you have to sacrifice some time because the rendering process will be longer to guarantee you a better image quality.

    Here is the video



    as always, any feedback is appreciated so let me know what you think

    Give YouTube your highest/best quality vid (i use 1920x1080@50FPS with bitrate 40,000) and then let them do their compression, yes it takes longer but its worth it.

    The best guide i found is ...

    UHD 4k 4096 @ 24/25 FPS - 60MBPS
    UHD 4k 3840 @ 24/25/30 FPS - 60MBPS
    UHD 2.7k 4096 @ 24/25/30 FPS - 40MBPS
    FHD 1080 @ 48/50/60 FPS - 40MBPS
    FHD 1080 @ 24/25/30 FPS - 25MBPS
    HD 720P @ 48/50/60 FPS - 20MBPS
    HD 720P @ 24/25/30 FPS - 10MBPS

    Thanks Cobs for the reply!

    That's a good point, and what you say it's true. If you are looking for the best quality ever and file size is not a problem, you are right!

    But, I think that when it comes to compromise you have to keep in mind also the file size because not only the rendering process but also the upload can be very long if you don't have a super fast connection.

    My settings are based on many test I've done, so I tryed to export videos at 1080p and 40mbps, and upload to youtube. I didn't see any noticeable difference between that and my method.

    Hi Ryback, if you must compromise then i agree with you, my upload speed is rubbish and it takes me several hours usually ... but i still do it, saves having to do another time when things improve/get faster lol.
