Uploading To Youtube From Videowave Downgrades Quality!

Question

I have recently purchased the HD pro after using the standard for many years however I have found that directly uploading a 1080p video from videowave to youtube downgrades it to 480p maximum available on youtube.

 

If however I save the file first then manually upload it, it is fine in full glorious 1080p HD.

 

Why can't videowave upload it in the correct quality? This is appaulling for bundled software to reduce the quality. Please help, and advise what i am doing wrong or fix the issue.

 

Win7 64bit, 30fps production setting, video captured 1080p, only modification in videowave is a colour panel at the start for the titles.. .

Others have noticed that as well... :(

 

Answer is in this Topic - http://forums.suppor...-to-480p-on-yt/

 

Also, while it does not specifically address this issue, use Help - Check for Updates, in you software to download the latest SP 1.1 update...

 

Give that a try and let us know ;)

I was going to send an email off today regarding this. But i am going to stick to what i say with Videowave. Always export to computer then upload to youtube. Might take abit longer but it handles the video format better.

Hi All,

 

I did some tests and find out the upload is capped at 480p if it's a 4:3 project.

 

If you create a 16:9 project but continue encountering the quality capped at 480p issue, please let me know.

 

Thanks!

For Starters do you have the SP1.1 update installed?

 

Are you Absolutely, Positively Sure you are running a 16:9 Project when this happens???

 

Keep in mind, VideoWave defaults to the Last Project settings when it opens...

 

It is an easy thing to check though! Right Click on the Clip and look at Aspect Ratio Handling - Production Aspect Ratio:

This way there will be NO Doubt ;)

SXFoxstar,

 

Did you add any transition at the beginning of the video? If so, can you send me the url to the 480p video for 1080p production?

 

Thanks!

Ivan, This happened to me. I uploaded the video BEFORE upgrading to service pack 1.0 or 1.1.

 

This link shows all of my videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/CallofDutyTeamL33T?feature=watch

 

The 16:9 project upload capped at 480p here:

 

I uploaded it manually and it went to 1080p here:

Hi Embalmer,

 

With your video, it does look like you added an intro video in the beginning that's not 16:9.

 

I think it would still work the same even after 1.1 update. Let me look into this and see what would be best way to address the issue other than uploading it manually.

 

Thanks!

 

Ivan

 

EDIT: The reason for the issue is that our software uses the first one clip in the storyboard as the target resolution for the whole project during uploading. Another work around would be to re-render your intro video into a HD video before importing it into the 16:9 production.

Thanks Ivan for the feedback however - The intro video was created within Videowave and is in fact - not a video at all. I just added a black "Color Panel" and added text effects over it- all done within Videowave. I used the "Insert Color Panel" option to do so.

 

I will most likely do this for all of my videos - Is there a different work around?

 

Is now a good time to "request" a feature added that allows us to choose which resolution we would like to upload to Youtube with?

 

Thanks again.
