In Topic: Getting the best results from YouTube / Vimeo (1080, 4K etc...)

For what concerns youtube and vimeo you need to encode with specifications. Using final cut and compressor together with x264 is possible to produce compliant files that are not re-encoded.

 

But if YouTube are now using the VP9 codec for delivery - your file will be re-encoded anyway? - even if you supply a file within spec? 

 

Or am i confusing the VP9 aspect?

 

I don't have enough spare time to sit and upload test files! The wife thinks I spend enough of my spare time diving, let know in front of the PC at weekends! LOL

Stupid question: Does the information on the GH4's display also get shown on the external monitor's display? Or does this depend on some GH4 menu setting? If nothing else I need the yellow focus box for focussing.


You can set the GH4 within the HDMI options to send the OSD or not. It's not exactly the same. As the output is 1080 so the OSD on the upper left (if I remember)

If you got a Ninja2 this would provide you with focus assist, false colour, blown highlights etc etc. I use mine for this and don't bother with the recording aspect.

Looks good but what about tripod leg (center one)?


This is my solution

I don't think you need to convert the footage if using FCPX (apart from relieving CPU stress) for grading, as the timeline is 32bit 444

I know it's talking about Samsung Note Tablets and there is no mention of 8bit or 10bit. but this video has really reinforced (to me) what's happening when you use a 4k file on a 1080 timeline.
