I've created a 5 min Animate .FLA project (30fps) paired with a soundtrack I created in Logic Pro, and I want to export for YouTube. When I export as a .SWF, it creates a nice compact SWF movie (8MB) with sound, which plays nicely on my Mac, but that file can't be uploaded to YouTube, can it? If so, that would be ideal.
When I seleted "Export Video/Media," it created a 2.5GB .mov file that would not open in QuickTime. When I select "Export Movie", the only options are to export as .SWF, or as a .JPG Sequence, .GIF sequence, .PNG sequence or .SVG sequence. (I doubt those last 4 are what I want.)
Is there another option or what am I doing wrong? Using Animate v21.0.3 on a Mac Mini M1, OS11.2. Thx in advance.
Hi, in the Export Video/Media window select the following:
Format: H.264 Preset: YouTube 1080p Full HD
These options will give you a Full HD MP4 video optimized for YouTube.
If your video is in 4k you can change the preset to YouTube 2160p 4K Ultra HD.
Excellent, thanks, I'll try that.
Mario (or anyone) - this works, to a point. Following these steps creates a nice .mp4 file that opens and plays in QuickTime on my Mac, but there is no sound. The video looks great, though.
Why do I lose the soundtrack doing this? Thanks
Hi, in the properties panel set your audio layer to Sync: Stream.
Excellent, thanks - that works. So many options and windows - I never would have found that. In fact, I'd never opened the Properties panel of the soundtrack before.
