  • encoding with X264 instead of H264

    I had bad results with h264 compression done via quicktime pro on PC After rendering an uncompressed .mov file from after effects, I used QuickTime pro to encode a H264 movie.

    It turns out that X264 also known as H264 2 could give better results. But after installing the codec on my PC I couldn’t find the codec option in my quicktime pro export options neither in after effects.

    Is there any intuitive way to encode a X264 quicktime movie on PC?

    Use Adobe Media Encoder to Render .H264.
