So I have a couple of videos in MP4 H264 format and I need to convert them to MOV because videohive doesn’t accept MP4 files for the After Effects project category.
But the problem is I can’t get the MOV files to look the same quality as the MP4 one. The quicktime version looks worse, and they are also 6 times heavier. example below.
The MP4 version have some artifacts but the videos are used inside the project with some effects on top so is not visible at HD resolution but the quicktime version is worse. Both videos had been converted from high resolution sequence of PSD files rendered from Cinema 4D.
Render to PNG or JPEG version is out of the question since I will get around 1.5 Gb of total size for all videos.
I personally consider Apple and their software a complete pile of crap and I frankly don’t understand why we can’t use MP4 files in our project but the point is what settings should I use to get this minor problem fixed and get my file out of the soft reject area.
Anyone knows a solution, or some type of settings that I could use?
How do I get the same settings from MP4 H264 settings tab (with the codec level and the rest) in the Quicktime H264 settings tab where is just a “spatial quality slider” (that I put at 100%)
