Hi guys,

I’d thought I start a thread discussing how to attain the best preview results. Right now I am using Adobe Media Encoder and am having trouble getting previews that are not only pretty good quality, but also playback smooth. It seems that if I put the bitrate too high then the playback is not a smooth as I would like it to be. But if I lower it too much then I get the ugly blocks, especially during fast motion.

What bitrates are guys using for 960×540 and 640×360 previews? VBR or CBR ?

Thanks

Why don’t you create the flash file with after effects it self as I always create by after effects

Yes I always just render out the project as an FLV using the standard After Effects settings. Comes out perfect everytime.

For 960×540 CBR 4000 -6000 kbs, keyframe every 15 frames. I’d probably go lower with the 640×360 but the keyframe value stays :) Depends on the project tho, multicolored ones don’t really need high bit rates.

I usually use 5000-6000kbps for 960×540. With same resolution and lower bitrate result quickly becomes distorted and full of artefacts. Even this bitrate doesn’t give the perfect result, but it’s the best compromise between compression and file size.
