uStudio's adaptable platform keeps up with rapidly-evolving video industry standards - so you don't have to.
uStudio wants your online video quality to be as good as possible while allowing manageable file sizes. To this end, for most videos, we suggest using the "Apple TV" video specifications:
From Final Cut Pro®: Export using “Apple TV®” for a visually high quality but
compact file. The “Apple TV” preset can be found in the “Share” dropdown menu
when choosing “Apple Devices…” in FCP X and inside of Mac’s Compressor program for
older versions of FCP.
From Avid®: Export with the following settings: H264 / One-Pass / Limit Data Rate to
5000 kbits/ps / AAC 256 kbits/ps / Size 1280x720, use file extension .m4v.
If your media is not in the above suggested format please ensure that your format and container is supported below:
- Photo JPEG
- Motion JPEG
- Windows Media 9
- MP4 (note: MP4-Visual is not supported)
The following formats are currently not accepted: Cineform (GoPro cameras), Apple Intermediate Codec, Animation Codec, MP4-Visual, AAC-LD audio.
