I'm not sure if what I'm asking is possible, but here's the situation.
I have a video I have made for distribution on the Internet (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.)
The video clip is a composite of the following:
- a person talking (shot against a green screen)
- a city scene in a harbor at night; the bottom half of the frame is filled with moving water (the ocean)
So, when I compress this using standard settings, the waves are given the most detail (because they move the most?), and the person shows more compression artifacts.
However, ideally, I want the person to be kept in the highest possible detail, and the water to be compressed more.
The compressor itself doesn't have any settings for something like this, but since the clip is a composite, I was thinking there might be a way to compress the layers separately... Can this kind of thing be done?
I'm using Davinci Resolve but I also have access to FCPX.
