Here’s the deal, the client have difficulty with mov files in their enterprise. So he asked me for the video in AVI or MP4.
The AVI i am not even considering
The mp4 i just can’t keep the same quality. Sharpen lines and stuff.
I am using MPegStreamclip, or Compressor, h.264 compressor for MPEG4, and aways losing too much in quality. I know i won’t have the same as the original .mov but is ther anyway i can keep at least the sharpen edges?
if you have to encode to h.264 I recommend trying handbrake https://handbrake.fr/
It’s very easy get good results using handbrake.
try the high profile preset – and constant quality RF 20-23 for HD, or RF 24-28 for SD content (lower RF = better quality).
I use it mostly to create .MP4s from Compressor and occasionally from QT 7. It really is as good as advertised. It’s less of any issue if posting a video to Youtube or Vimeo, but if you serve it from your own website, it’s saves a lot of bandwidth over time. Myself or someone else here can help you with settings if you have questions.
MP4 video files are doesn’t supported by many video player devices but don’t worry because you can play MP$ video file on any portable video player. Simply convert MP4 to MOV and after conversion play MOV video.
I can recommend the app I used to convert MOV AVI to MP4. As far as I know WALTR app is comparatively new and easier than others. It converts at fast speed and with original video quality. I think it’s worth using! ..especially for those, who don’t want to waste time 🙂 Here is some info https://softorino.com/waltr/best-converter-avi-mp4-mac-windows Hope it’ll help you)
Actually, there are many online apps can convert MOV video to MP4 video, such as zamzar, Acethinker Video Converter, mediaconverter, etc. They are totally free, and you don’t have to download or install anything.
