Hello Guys!

I've recently started to make some 4K videos for stock.
I don't know nothing about video editing so I basically clip the videos, encode and submit.

My question here is: what are the optimal settings in Adobe Premiere?

Here's what I'm currently using... is this too much?
I ask this because after exporting these videos I can't even open them in my pc :)




Many thanks in advance.

Best regards

It looks like your source recording frame rate is 23.976, so you would probably want to change the TV standard to NTSC and output frame rate to 23.976 as well.

Unless you were changing the original speed of the clip, you can leave time interpolation blank. Otherwise optical flow is fine.

CBR bitrate encoding just means that you are using a constant bit rate for each from of video, which isn't really necessary, depending on how fast your machine is, you'll achieve very similar quality with smaller file sizes if you change it VBR 2 pass.

For h.264 Shutterstock does ask for "best" encode quality, which would probably mean 300mbps, but unless you were recording RAW files with an Inspire 1, that is a higher original bit-rate than your source footage, so it's overkill and just going to lead larger file sizes. If this was a Phantom 3 or 4, you can set the target bit rate to 200mbps and that would be plenty high.

Square pixels and progressive field order are both correct.

Many thanks for your great and quick answer StockbyNumbers!

I'll apply your suggestions ASAP  :)

Most agencies don't accept an MP4 container. You should be outputting these as MOV, so choose QuickTime from the dropdown... and then you can use the H.264 codec in a MOV container, if you want to.

Welcome to the world of footage!

In my opinion, you would benefit from taking a week or so just reading up on how to create and handle footage, before uploading anything else.

From the basics and up - frame rates, codecs, bitrates, containers, shutter speeds, etc. etc.

That stuff cannot be a mystery, it must be crystal clear.  :)
