Hi! I am new to APP (I use CS6) and this is my first time exporting a video. I'd like to upload it to YouTube for 1080p resolution, but the export settings really confuse me. I've tried exporting it and uploading to YouTube once, but my highest resolution options were either 480p or 720p50HD (which I have absolutely no idea what it is) instead of 1080p.

I am trying a second export with similar settings, but still am not sure if it will work.

My video was shot with a Canon DSLR (rebel t5i or EOS 700D) -- at 1920x1080p, 25fps, 48000Hz, Stereo etc. (seen in the img above)

Here are my export settings:

VIDEO

Format: H.264

Preset: HD 1080p 25

TV Standard: NTSC

Frame Dimensions: 1920 x 1080 pixels

Frame Rate: 25 fps

Field Order: Progressive

Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square Pixels (1.0)

Profile: High

Level: 5.1

(Render at Max. Depth - checked)

Bitrate Encoding: VBR, 2 Pass

Target Bitrate [Mbps]: 15

Max. Bitrate [Mbps]: 20

AUDIO

Audio Format: AAC

Codec: AAC

Output Channel: Stereo

Freq: 48000Hz

Audio Quality: High

Bitrate [kbps]: 192

(Use Maximum Render Quality - checked)

I decided not to use the YouTube presets because apparently they're not that good so...

anyone? please help! :s

Who said so and why did you not try it  and work it out for your self?

I am currently halfway through my third export using a YouTube preset

and I read a few other forums on other websites and watched about 3 tutorials that all said this so :1 well some said they weren't good, others said using other presets would be better

and I am trying to figure it out! But I am new to this whole thing and it's a bit overwhelming...

I understand that it can be overwhelming.

Thats why I suggest ..go with Export> H264 > Youtube preset for 1080 25p.

It will be fine.  ( As a noob you need to test before listening to others)

Post a screenshot of the entire export settings tab, with the left tab on output.

Your sequence settings are not correct. HD is never lower field.

I forgot what exactly my settings were when I first exported the file, but I imagine this is around the same v

11.JPG

My first try for the export got me 1080p50 (don't know what the difference is compared to 1080p so I tried exporting it a second time)

My second try got me to 420p and my third got me to 360p (I used different presets/settings for every try -- but my audio settings remain unchanged for all three tries)

Would have been nice if the left screen had a picture instead of black all over.

Anyway export settings are fine.

You only need to change the sequence settings to match the footage.

Check the File (that you exported) >Properties.

If it is 1080p as your screen grab suggests it is...then the problem is at YT end and maybe an error in the way you did something there.

It doesn't say 1080p but the dimensions are 1920 x 1080 so I assume that's correct?

That is correct.  1080p = 1920 x 1080

Do you by any chance know the difference between 1080p50 and 1080p?

I know this is a dead thread but for any one with this question who stumbles onto it later the number after 1080p is the framerate

Sometimes you will see 1080i50 then the framerate is 25.

Hello, I ran into this thread and I was digging everywhere with no luck for an answer.  Hopefully this helps, i've used "scale to fill" which remove the black borders on the sides.  SCALE TO FILLSCALE TO FILLSCALE TO FITSCALE TO FIT
