Not sure this is a bug, please move it to discussion if it is not.
I was just wondering. For my submission contest for VUO + COGE I made my first Image Filter Protocol. Had to turn it to an Image Generator to export an offline movie (I'm doing an offline export instead of a record composition method because my Intel HD 3000 is not able to render the composition smoothly (see the already uploaded bug report concerning the Intel HD) and renders at 30 fps only.
But anyway, so far ok. Color depth is set to 16 bit inside the composition.
I think the result looks pretty good even if I don't have Vuo Pro yet.
I set the export resolution to 1280*720 and to 60 fps.
But when I upload it to Youtube or Vimeo, there is an incredible drop of quality.
So I was having some questions.
Am I doing something wrong ?
Youtube says videos should be uploaded to mp4. Does Vuo only exports to .mov or can we manually change the export extension for another protocol ?
The strange thing is that when I convert the .mov on the computer before even uploading it, with some Video conversion software, the quality drops too, what makes me believe it is not related to Youtube or Vimeo. Could this be related with the conversion methods from mov to mp4 ?
When I tried to upload the video to Vimeo I was getting a warning message smtg like "there is a color error inside this video".
So I thought perhaps that was because I would not set a blank background on the composition and there would be a problem with the alpha channel, but happens even if I put a blank "Make Color Image" behind it all.
Joining the composition and some image quality comparison.
