5 Tips on How to Upload YouTube Videos.
Uploading only HD videos on YouTube is like having a jet pack toward success; it gives you the upper hand against your competitors. However, you just can't upload any videos to YouTube and expect it to turn HD by itself. You also have to do some work and ensure that your videos correspond with YouTube's HD specifications. After all, "No pain, no gain." That said, your video must:
•Be in MPEG4 format—this is the main format for HD videos, not only on YouTube but throughout the World Wide Web. Otherwise called H.264, MPEG4 has become a standard for video compression and is, therefore, compatible with and supported by most devices ranging from computers to televisions to mobile gadgets.
•Have 1280x720 or 1920x1080 resolution—resolution for videos refer to the number of distinct pixels they are able to display. As of this writing, the two most common HD resolutions are 1280x720 (720p) and 1920x1080 (1080p), the latter known as the highest HD standard.
•Have 128k Mono or 320k Stereo MP3/AAC Audio—both MP3 and AAC are acceptable formats, but majority of uploaders lean toward MP3. This is perhaps due to the fact that MP3 generates smaller file sizes, although AAC is known to produce better sound quality. It is also worth noting that the larger the kbps, the larger the file would be.
•Have FPS of 24, 25, 30 or current native settings (e.g., 29.97)—24, 25, and 30 are the frame rate standards for videos intended for TV, film, and online distribution.
•Be No Longer than 15 minutes or bigger than 2GB in file size—uploading on YouTube can be such a pain when the file size is too big. While YouTube allows up to 2GB file size, it will be wise on your part to make the file size as small as possible, without compromising its quality. Aside from quicker uploading time, viewers also tend to favor shorter videos, which will again be to your advantage.
In this edition we talk about portable green screen studios...what they are, how they work and their benefits. First let's start with "what is a green screen"? We see them in use every evening during weather segments on the news and in commercials and they are exactly what the name says. It's a screen that is green...no industry jargon, nothing esoteric...it's a screen coloured green...it can be painted on a studio wall, on cardboard or material as long as the green is consistent and well lit. So how does it work?
Video Tips & tricks - Using High End Production Equipment CRANES-DOLLIES--35mm-LENS
Why believe what we tell you?
We've been doing video production for nearly 20 years and have been providing Video Production in Melbourne for 10 years!
So lets get down to the main points covered in the Video.
In this edition we discuss high end video production equipment. We'll look at large and medium scale camera cranes, dollies and tracks and 35mm lens adaptors.
Cranes can make the difference between a boring and lifeless shot and an exciting shot as movement is essential to engaging the eye.
Camera cranes can offer visuals usually only found in cinema and broadcast and bring productions to a higher level.
The crane itself can swing from the ground to its maximum reach. They can also swing 360 degrees and the camera attached to the crane can pan tilt and zoom.
The large crane RCM used has a nine metre arm. It is used for real estate external shots, on shoots that require capturing large objects like planes or trucks as well as pieces to camera by presenters.
Smaller cranes are effective for use indoors and quick outdoor setups as they are easier to move around a location with.
Dollies and tracks offer great camera movement. They can move towards or away from a subject or from side to side.
Dolly shots can be used for interviews to reveal more of the background and create engagement.
RCM uses dollies and tracks for real estate interiors and can also ramp these shots.
Dollies and tracks can offer fluent movement to all shots whether they are indoors, outdoors, interviews or product shots.
Dollies and tracks are quick and easy to set up and a cost effective way to lift production values.
35mm lens adaptors allow 35mm lenses to be attached to high definition video cameras.
35mm lenses give a shallow depth of field, meaning the background is out of focus and the subject is in focus.
35mm lenses give more of a film look and focus the eye on a chosen subject.
Compared to a 35mm lens, the stock lens on a high definition video camera will deliver a flat, less appealing image without a clear focal point.
Using 35mm lens adaptors does take longer as lens and camera position changes are frequent but the end results are undoubtedly better.
Video production companies have access to these tools but most don't use them. It is important to hire a company who uses cranes, dollies and 35mm lens adaptors regularly as the operators and crew's experience makes all the difference.
