Vimeo DOES support HEVC and even recommends it over H264. And 5000MB/sec would create a file size much bigger than the 5gb limit. If I’m going with H264, VBR 2-pass is available on Premiere so need for the third-party encoder.

H264 will only allow about 22mbps for a 5gb file. Same goes for H265. The resolution has no effect on the final export size in Premiere but right now, I’m exporting 144p (2560×1080). I even tried 1080p as well with the same results. Trust me, when you have images with complex texture or darkness in the background, a 5gb file for 30-minute film will not suffice. The rest of the film is fine until those parts.

Thanks for your advice, Ty!

Yeah, I think communication is definitely the problem.
When I said, I have “a difficult time listening,” I mean it’s difficult because it’s too loud.
There are very few cracks when I listen to the film on uncompressed audio on TV or on my computer. But they’re still there when the volume gets high, but he says it’s fine and not cracking. And the 5.1, despite the very high dialogue volume, seemed to have no cracking issue. It mainly happens on stereo and hence vimeo.
I’ll tell him about the vimeo issue. It’s just really difficult sometimes, because it’s easy for a director to end up nitpicking when something is unnoticeable. Just not sure what case this is.
(The thing that scared me on top of the cracking sound was when the sound designer had panned all the dialogue throughout the film. When one character was on the right of a wide shot, he would make the sound come from there. From my experience, the dialogue should almost always be center but he tells me many people pan dialogue. I got it back to center but definitely makes me second-guess trusting him.)

But why does 1920×1080 have to be the standard format though? Yeah, I know that’s 16:9 and the size of most TV and computer monitors. But wouldn’t any aspect ratio automatically fit on most video players on any monitor? Like why export a video in 1920×1080 if you shot the film for 2048×858? Wouldn’t exporting the video in the latter aspect ratio for both online and projection suffice? I’m thinking the festival could just ask for a maximum file size instead?

Wouldn’t that degrade the overall quality of the font?

Quick question though:
If I want to export 2K (2560×1440) but in 2:1 aspect ratio, can I set the sequence settings at 2560×1280 and export 2560×1440? Then, it would still be 16:9 but with the black matte on top and bottom. Would this degrade the quality at all?

Thanks, Bret! Will do.

The font size is going from 45 to 55 so there aren’t major border issues.
And yeah, I’m definitely doing the caption option next time!
