Issue is only with one MPEG-4 Export that it will not play on Quicktime or any other player. VLC player will not even play. Quicktime attempts to convert and errors that it can not play the file. I have had not problems prior or after with other mp4 Exports. I have made many videos without issue with same settings and gear. Media in Project: 3 videos (2 MPEG-4 and 1 QT Movie) on 3 separate tracks, 1 Wave (16 bit 44.1k) , 1 Simple Text - Can I mix MPEG4 and QT movie in same Export? 3 video tracks are cut to show desired shot throughout video. Does cutting up the 3 video effect Export perhaps? The video works fine in Video Pad prior to Export. No Warnings at all. The file size is 541.7 MB. I made a quick recreation/Export (same Export settings) with same 3 videos and Wave without Crops (splits) and MP4 played. I then recreated new video and same thing. It will not play in any player. I notice that "More Info" on my Mac will not display Dimensions, Codecs or any info of the problem MP4. Export settings: Preset: Custom File Format: Mp4 Resolution: 1920X1080 - 1080 HD Variable Frame rate (Max 45.000fps Subtitle: Overlay I have several screen shots I wish I could attach to help. Is there a way? If any more info needed please ask. Thank you, Lou Verrone
I'm confused. Not with life in general but with the options in VP to generate in either H.264 or MPEG4. Now I fully understand that H.264 is now enshrined in the MP4 standards etc but here's the thing: yesterday I generated a video in both H.264 (quality factor 15, whatever that means) and also in MPEG4 (8192 Mbits which is recommended by YouTube, apparently). When generating the H.264 I could wash the dishes, walk the dog, take out the trash... in short it took forever, as it always does. So a 20 minute video takes about twice that time on a quad-core I5 with 12Gb memory. The CPU runs at 100% for the entire render period. Poor thing. When generating the MPEG4 it romped through it in about 10 minutes - in fact it was so quick I initially thought it had failed. The H.264 size was about 2.5Gb and the MPEG4 about 750Mb. Wow! Quite a difference. In a like-for-like comparison, full-screen, on a 24" monitor I could not tell the difference. So what's up with these two formats? I thought H.264 was supposed to be ultra-compressed and the new boy-on-the-block, but frankly, I'm now thinking about generating all my videos in MPEG4 8192 Mbits as it's quicker, smaller and looks just like the H.264 equivalent. So I remain confused and would welcome Real World enlightenment on these formats. Anyone?
