Re: What render settings do you use?

You should follow Google's recommended rendering settings as close as possible. Link your video so we could judge it ourselves.

My general rule for High Quality is:
-Encode using H.264 codec (.mp4), Sony Vegas calls it MainConcept AVC.
-At 50 Mbps Bitrate.
-30 fps, though the framerate value might change soon on YouTube.
-Encoding Method: VBR 1-pass
-Field Order: Progressive
-Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square (1:0)
-High Profile
-Make sure video is recorded and rendered at valid 16:9 aspect ratio resolution (e.g. 1280×720, 1366×768, 1600×900, 1920×1080, 2048×1152, 2560×1440).
-If video has too much high detail and fast motion movement then consider upscaling video to 1440p to force higher bitrate stream on YouTube.
-If you are Sony Vegas user and rendering in AVC makes your video darker then you have to apply the Sony Levels Effect.
My videos are so grainy. I need some good vegas render settings. I record my gameplay using an Elgato HD60 at 1080p 60fps 40mbps. I record my facecam using OBS at 1080p 30fps 1000 kbps.

Try using this preset: https://encodingtalk.com/threads/my-vegas-preset.3907/

Although it was created for my needs for Shadowplay, it should work out fine for you. However, it's quite likely your videos are grainy because you are trying to stitch two video sources of completely different frame rates together, producing bad output. Frame rate should be equal, not differing like yours are (game at 1080p60, facecam at 1080p30 (facecam is pointless btw, don't bother with it))

Also, please don't bump year old discussions. I have moved your post to a new thread so as to prevent any unwanted emails being sent to users who have contributed to this post years ago.
