CyberLink PowerDirector – Taking a Look at How Whats is the Best Render Settings for YouTube [1080p – 4K HD] 5 MINS!
Hello people, welcome to this video! Let’s see quickly and easily the best render settings for YouTube with CyberLink PowerDirector 14. If you have problems with the accent, enable our closed captions clicking on the CC icon in the video corner. The main goal is to obtain the best HD resolution settings available from the YouTube player, such as 720p and 1080p, with the highest quality possible.
To do this, you must assure four important keypoints. Let’s see each one in detail. First thing: the project used to create your final video must have the correct aspect ratio. The YouTube player uses an aspect ratio of 16:9. This means that the ratio between the number of pixels in width and the pixels in height must be 16:9. You can adjust the aspect ratio selecting it, next to the gear icon at the very top. Second thing: you have to decide the HD video resolution, often indicated by a multiplier between two quantities. The resolution is right what you decide in Quality in the YouTube player. Such resolution is decided when you render your video, under the Produce tab. You can render a video for YouTube in two different ways: rendering online or offline, depending whether you have an internet connection or not. If you are connected, you can go to the Online tab and choose YouTube in the list, in order to render and upload your video directly on YouTube with the best video settings. Plus, under Profile type, choose the video resolution: HD Quality for the 720p option in YouTube, FULL Quality for the 1080p, or choose 2K or 4K for the maximum resolution actually available.
Just keep in mind that, the higher is the resolution, the more time you will have to wait for the render and the upload. If you don’t have any internet connection, you can render offline, and upload in a later time. In this case, go to Standard 2D bar, and choose H.264 which stays for the .mp4 format, choosing your favorite video resolution, from 720p or 1080p to 2K or 4K. Third thing, maybe the most important one, is to use source/original videos with high quality for your project from the start. In fact, even if you use the highest resolution possible, a rendering never improves the quality of your source videos.
In short, if you start from videos that are blurry and unclear, you will get blurry and bad videos whatever is the resolution and quality chosen. So mind to use videos enough good to support high resolutions. single source video used in your project. If these have an aspect ratio of 16:9, you have no problems. But if any has a different aspect ratio, for example the old 4:3, you may get annoying black bars on each side of your final video. In this case, you need to adjust the aspect ratio of each of the wrong clips. Before correcting the wrong clips, it may be useful to add a color board first, in order to highlight the contours of your project. Then, select the wrong clip and go to the Preview, open in Clip mode.
In this way, you can scale and distort the clip using its nodes, adjusting its aspect ratio and so covering the black bars fully. Respecting these four points seen, such as aspect ratio, resolution, sufficient quality from your original videos, and no black bars, you will obtain the best HD videos to upload in YouTube.
