comment Which video editing software should I use for youtube videos?
After Effects isn't an editing program. It's a great tool for compositing and special effects, but editing with it is like using a hammer to slice bread. Use Premiere for editing and do your special effects in AE.

comment How to specify CRF quality settings for different encoding software
Thanks for your answer. I think the take-home message is that if we want to have quality control for our web video we ask contractors to deliver masters and do the encoding ourselves.

comment How to specify CRF quality settings for different encoding software
But just as an academic exercise, would specifying a profile + level do the job? I usually encode Main Profile for compatibility, could I specify level 3 or higher?

comment How to specify CRF quality settings for different encoding software
That's what I've been suggesting. I've never had to contact a contractor to get them to supply me with an mp4 because I've only got a ProRes master, but the reverse is quite common.

comment How can I mix a video in Full HD (1920 x 1080) with a vid in HD (1280 x 720)
I stand corrected. My vocabulary has been ampliated, thank you. Does that mean the OP meant that the footage was stretched?

comment Merge two transparent webm videos with ffpeg
Stream #1:0: Video: vp8, yuv420p Stream #0:0: Video: vp8, yuv420p Looks like your video doesn't have an alpha channel, if it did it would be yuva420p. See this post for more: bit.ly/1Es6KLK

comment How to copy current timecode to clipboard in Final Cut Pro 7?
apart from selecting it in the timecode display and hitting cmd-c? Or do you mean on the fly, while it's playing?

comment Razor all clips in timeline underneath in/out points
shift+ctl/cmd+k will add a cut right across all cuts in your timeline, so you could do shift+i, shift+ctl/cmd+k, then shift+o, shift+ctl/cmd+k to quickly add cuts at your in and out points. But listen to @AJHenderson and use multicam instead.

comment ffmpeg drawtext clipping to a bounding box
What about using Imagemagick to create images with the text as bitmaps, and then overlaying it?

You could improve your answer by expanding a little: maybe a link to one of the utilities.

It's good to hear that libx264 is the default now.

comment How to change the pace of imported mov video clip in after effects
The question mark was because the sentence starts with "See the last column…" I've rewritten it, thanks.

comment Can I use h.264 codec inside .mp4 container for my website
Remember rhat my legal advice is worth all the money you're paying me. To be "on the safer side" I'd get a lawyer once your user base > 100,000. But there's links to the MPEGLA terms in the other question I mentioned, if you want to judge for yourself.

comment Faster deinterlacing with ffmpeg and yadif
The ffmpeg pipeline basically goes: decode the image and create a raw frame > apply filters, scaling, cropping rotation etc. to the raw frame > encode to output(s). I doubt that repeating the first and third step will make the process faster. You know you can encode to multiple outputs in the one command don't you? Thus: ffmpeg -i in.mov -c:v foo out1.mov -c:v bar out2.mov -c:v fuz out3.mkv. This saves on the decoding step for each frame.

comment The ProRes of Premiere Pro?
Premiere uses 32 bit floating point colour. DaVinci Resolve uses 32 bit YRGB (whatever that is). The fact that Color does 32 bits too isn't really much of a feature. And sure when you're grading footage use a 10-bit codec, but you're never going to get back any more dynamic range than the original 8-bit footage had.

comment A distortion in video file appear after move it from server to server
Maybe do a checksum or hash on the file, both on the server and on the other machines to see whether it has been corrupted in transmission.

@PethőJonatán No, it isn't. None of the major browsers support .mov without plugins. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML5_video#Browser_support
