Post Video editing and Youtube uploading
Looking for any info to make the process of editing and uploading videos to youtube quicker than what it is taking me now.

It takes me about 40mins to bring a file into movie maker, then another couple of hours to try and edit and then save, it then takes me nearly 4hrs to upload onto youtube and that was for a video that was just over 3mins long icon_scratch

Is there free software that can shorten the process? any help appreciated icon_thumright

I have the same problem. If I try upload a video as 720HD it takes like 6 hours to upload and slows my net connection to barely usable during that time. If I render the video and the next step down it onlt takes 30-40 minutes to upload but it looks like it was filmed on a calculator :(

What you are saying sounds about right.I use vimeo and a 5-6 (about 500 mb) minute video can take 5 hrs day time so i do mine at night and it is heaps quicker (about 3hrs).Just set them up before you go to bed and forgot them until morning.Not sure about you-tube though.

Pricey,i try to keep my unedited clips to about 10mins each and it is faster to put on movie maker and easier to edit.I usually start the camera at the start of a track and simply stop it after about 10 mins then hit start again and repeat this process.You will get a lot of small clips but alot easier to edit etc.It's also easier this way to delete the stuff you don't want before you put it on movie maker.

hope this helps

steve.

I try to keep the vids to 3 to 4 mins max. This keeps the size down as well

I bought a PC specifically for video editing but there are a few things you can do speed things up while maintaining some quality. I use Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5, all my footage is filmed off my GoPro as the following

720p @50fps (Approx 15Mbps) MPEG4 (H.264)

When I complete the video I export at the following

720p @50fps (Fixed at 5Mbps) MPEG4 (H.264) this is because Youtube transcodes the video to 4Mbps and Vimeo to 4.5Mbps. Thats why HD looks a little better on Vimeo. Some things that help process the video faster after editing are

1. May seem obvious but a faster CPU. Eg I have a Intel i7 (8 Cores) which is better than i5 (6 Cores) also if your lucky enough like me Adobe Premiere can use a dedicated Graphics card to speed up the process. (Google Mercury Playback Engine)

2. Faster Hard drives. Also putting the video footage on a seperate hard drive than your windows drive helps. Eg 7200 Rpm drives are faster than 5400rpm drives. I have a SSD (quickest drive but pricey) for windows and 2x1Tb 7200rpm drives for my footage.

3. Like the guys said the shorter the video the less time processing/uploading.

Now my last tip I cant explain yet but I have ADSL2+ which is 10Mbps download and 1Mbps upload. When I upload from a windows XP machine using Google Chrome my computer uses 800K out of 1Mb upload. When I use my Windows 7 machine running Google Chrome my PC only uses 400K out of my 1Mb connection. This takes twice as long to upload from the windows 7 machine compared to the XP machine. So now once the video is finished I copy it to the XP machince and upload from there. Strange I know but it does it everytime.

Hope this helps. Happy to answer any other questions you might have.

Cheers Chris.

There is no point sending a 50fps video to youtube or vimeo, it will downgrade it to 25 or 30fps. The 50fps mode on the GoPro is meant to be used so you can slow it down in post editing, for slow motion sequences.

And last time I tested, youtube was 7.5Mbps and vimeo was 4.5Mbps. Youtube looked slightly better than vimeo, hard to see a difference though. See here for more on the comparison;

cant see why windows xp would upload faster than windows 7 , except maybe the windows 7 lan is crap or unconfigured correctly, ?? interesting .... What Wes says .. no use uploading it as 50 fps if it is going to be downgraded ..

And what Frank says keep em to a minimum as i fall asleep fast watching sum :P

Hey Guys,
Looks like your right pneumatic, 8Mbps for 1080p and 5Mbps for 720p at a max of 30fps. Its amazing how different the Raw footage looks compared to the Youtube version.

wes did link this in his post but this is a lazy cheatin method

http://www.trailrideraustralia.com/view ... =95&t=2478

I have used this many many times.

I use Vimeo as I do not get many disconnects and failed uploads but wth youtube I get failures all the time.

(Been a long while since uploads though)
