which format to compress with?

What is the best setting to encode and compress my videos for smooth playback on youtube. I have read that the compression can make the video look jumpy?

I am shooting with a sony FX-1 1080i and compressing it into wmv at 720 24fps in adobe premier pro cs4. What is the best format to compress for dvd with cs4?

Could the joltyness(if thats a word) of some of the shots be from the image stabilization been on? I read when on a tripod to turn it off for more natural effect, does same come into play when using a glide cam?

Thx for the help

If you're exporting for web, use FLV for SD (720x480 or smaller) and use F4V for HD (larger than 720x480). The jumpiness you mention is probably due to a slow frame rate, for smooth playback use at least 24fps. Also, for your bitrate use at least 600kbps, make sure your field order is set to progressive and turn on "Maximum Render Quality" for high quality HD to SD downsampling.

As for exporting a video to a DVD compatible format check out the following thread where I explain it in detail. http://www.dvinfo.net/forum/attend-w...-settings.html

Yes, if you're using a tripod it is best to turn off the image stabilization. If you are very smooth and steady on your glide cam you may disable IS for that also.

One thing to keep in mind is if your output will be in SD (web, DVD) shoot in SD. It will make it easier for your editing system and will result in higher SD video quality than downsampling HD to SD in post.

For Youtube see this thread: I reached the top! Video quality on YouTube

Exporting for DVD... ummm... the only format is MPEG2!

Not sure what 'joltiness' might be, if you mean a jumpy picture, it might be that you messed up your field order - HDV is upper first.
