  • Today is there better than mpeg2?

    Hi, in the past time when I liked a very good video for videoprojetction, I have always exported from timeline (with hd clips) to mpeg2 with high bitrate. But today I think exporting to h.264 it is possible to get a video with better quality (to be watched on a large TV).
    Is it right?

    There are many variables, such as available bandwidth and codec and profile used, as well as any constraints imposed by the system used to view the file.

    In general H264 is more efficient (similar quality at half the bandwidth) and may be better for shots with a lot of motion. MPEG2 may require less horsepower from editing systems.

    See http://www.streaminglearningcenter.c...2-quality.html
    for some comparisions from one evaluator.

    If you are preparing content for a specific viewing system, run some tests to determine what works best for you. Uncompressed is likely the best if you have the storage and bandwidth it demands.

      Good! It seems that if I shot with low motion, the video quality of both mpeg2 and h.264 are very similar.

        Is this for Blu-ray playback or computer file playback? If it is for Blu-ray and the project is under 80 minutes in length then I do not think you will see a difference between the two.

          It is not for blu-ray, I have to get a good file to play with a large TV or with a projector.

            What are you using to play the file with? If it's a PC then you could just use Mpeg2 and give it a high bitrate as that will make the file quicker, but it will be bigger. If it's not a PC then you need to check what formats the player supports

              I use WD TV HD Media Player and it supports both formats.
