Render settings for mix of 1080p24 and 720p60

Hello everyone, I am trying to figure out what render settings I should use for a 1080p24 timeline that has a mix of both 1080p24 and 720p60 footage. The final product will be uploaded to vimeo and youtube. Any insight would be greatly appreciated
thanks

Re: Render settings for mix of 1080p24 and 720p60

I fashioned my Vimeo template from a 720 30p template, I believe. It is an excessive bit rate, files are huge, and probably unnecessarily so, but it is what I use and it works well. 1080 is absolutely overkill for internet, first off, so stick with 720p, IMO.

I've messed with my settings, and it always come out worse, so I just stick with the below settings for lack of how to create high quality files that are smaller. I'm sure it can be done, I just haven't had time to devote to it.

I'm not recommending my settings, but am only getting the ball rolling here for you. I will say though you can use my settings for guaranteed quality, but there is, in your case the issue of 24p footage. I have no idea how that will come out, sorry.

24p comes out fine in a 60p stream.

The question is, do you want the 60p to have the motion of 60p, which will look "live" and different from the 24p? Or do you want it to appear like the 24p footage?

If you want to look "live" and have the difference in the footage, then render as 60p.

If you want to convert the 60p stuff to 24p so it all looks more uniform, then render as 24p.

I agree that 720 will probably better for upload.

I don't, however, know if Vimeo or Youtube will accept 59.94 without converting it to 29.97. If they convert it, then you'll lose a lot of your "live" look, and you may see problems with the 24p footage -- in which case I would suggest just using a 24p render, because that won't be changed on upload.
