I am working on an animation project, and am having problems with video quality on Youtube and Vimeo.
Basically, I am making animations of objects from JPG frames to MP4 video files. They are relatively low-quality animations - 25 FPS - that I am exporting from Windows Movie Maker.
The MP4s and WMVs that I have created look fine in media players on the PC, but once I have uploaded them to YT and Vimeo, they become unacceptably jerky and jittery.
I have tried multiple settings - bitrates of 8k, 5k, and 3k, different frame sizes, etc. and the problem persists.
I would really appreciate any help, I have spent a TON of time on this project and this playback issue is a real bummer.
I dont understand why what looks like good quality in Windows Media Player becomes crap when streaming.
I have tried exporting my animations from After Effects, but couldnt get any good quality video, even after lots of messing with the maze of settings.
I really appreciate any help. I dont come from an animation background, just took some video production classes in college.
I am wondering if I should be doing the animation in Flash...?
Thanks so much,
