Tip #567: YouTube Compression Settings for Premiere Pro
Premiere’s YouTube presets are good – provided you first check H.264.
In Tip #561 I shared YouTube’s optimized compression settings. Here’s how they translate into Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
Select the compression frame size that matches the size of your project. There’s no benefit to making the compressed frame size smaller, and scaling it larger will only make it blurry.
Premiere’s settings closely match YouTube’s recommendations. On the Export Settings screen:
- Set Format to H.264
- Pick the YouTube preset that matches the sequence frame size. In general, you’ll only need 720p, 1080p or 2160p.
- Make sure the box to match frame rate is checked.
The audio compression settings are fine for both stereo and mono.
